SPARTA, NJ – Sparta United Methodist Church has rescheduled the Mark Miller Inspirational concert to April 10. The original date had to be cancelled due to snow.
Sparta United Methodist Church is inviting the community to join them as they welcome Mark Miller for an inspirational evening of special music. “Mark Miller believes passionately that music can change the world. He also believes in Cornell West’s quote that ‘Justice is what love looks like in public,’” according to Miller’s website.
“His dream is that the music he composes, performs, teaches and leads will inspire and empower people to create a beloved community. He also believes passionately in food and is the main chef at chez Kensington in Plainfield, where he lives with his loving husband of 24 years and two great kids,” says published information about Miller.
Miller serves as Assistant Professor of Church Music at Drew Theological School and is a Lecturer in the Practice of Sacred Music at Yale University. He also is the Minister of Music of Christ Church in Summit. Since 1999 Mark has led music for United Methodists and others around the country, including directing music for the 2008 General Conference.
His choral anthems are best sellers for Abingdon Press and Choristers Guild and his hymns are published in “Worship& Song,” “Sing! Prayer and Praise,” “Zion Still Sings,” “Amazing Abundance,” “The Faith We Sing,” and others.
Miller received his Bachelor of Arts in Music from Yale University and his Master of Music in Organ Performance from Juilliard. Miller is a lifelong United Methodist. He is the grandson, son, brother, uncle, and cousin to United Methodist clergy. As a lay delegate to the 2000 and 2004 and 2012 General Conferences, Miller was a witness to Christ’s mission of breaking down the dividing walls of hostility and fear in the United Methodist Church.
