OBU group to lead worship at Immanuel Baptist Church in Shawnee.

Oklahoma Baptist University’s praise ensemble, David’s Creed, will lead worship at Immanuel Baptist Church in Shawnee on Sunday, May 12, during the 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. worship services. The community is invited to attend.

Immanuel Baptist Church is located at 1451 E. 45th St., Shawnee.

David’s Creed takes a contemporary approach to leading worship. The band mixes contemporary music with traditional hymns. The repertoire allows the group to minister in churches with different styles of musical preference.

The auditioned praise ensemble was started by the OBU Division of Music in spring 2007. Its primary purpose is to connect OBU with the churches in Oklahoma and the surrounding region by serving those churches in worship through music, testimony and God’s Word.

For 2012-13, David’s Creed includes OBU students Sammy Andrews, Karlie Clifford, Tabitha Gordon, Jason McPhail, Josh Michael, Taylor Miller, Nick Simmons, Sarah Stephens and Ethan Workman.

The band is directed by Dr. Casey Gerber, assistant professor of music education and coordinator of vocal music education at OBU. Gerber teaches methods courses, supervises student teachers and conducts the Young Singers of Central Oklahoma in the OBU Preparatory Program.
