Description

GMA Canada is excited to once again be partnering with Break Forth Canada in Edmonton, AB. January 26th to 28th, 2018 at The Shaw Conference Centre.

After the success of GMA Week 2017, GMA Canada knew that the natural thing to do was once again integrate and partner with Break Forth Canada. GMA Week 2018 will include, the 39th Annual Covenant Awards, GMA Canada Worship Night, multiple showcasing opportunities and workshops for our GMA Canada Artist Community.

This year’s Covenant Awards hosted by previous Covenant Award recipients Carolyn Arends and Jon Buller, will take place within the heart of Break Forth One on Saturday evening January 27th.

This year’s awards will have an emphasis on storytelling and community and allow the artists to form deeper connections among themselves and within the industry helping to foster GMA Canada’s core values.

Showcasing opportunities for GMA Canada Members at GMA Week have been a catalyst to significant opportunities for many of our members. The showcases for GMA Week 2017 provided opportunity for thirty plus members of our GMA community. This year’s showcases will include performances at the 2018 Covenant Awards, GMA Worship night, opening spots for all Break Forth One Conference sessions, and opening spots for all evening performances in addition to the many acoustic performances throughout the weekend. The audiences for some of these performances are expected to be between four to five thousand.

Following the 39th Annual Covenant Awards, we will return to hosting the GMA Canada Worship Night which will be open to all Awards and Break Forth One 2018 attendees. This year’s worship leaders will include Ben Cantelon and will feature two supporting GMA Canada members.

GMA Week Workshops will take place on Friday, January 26 – coinciding with Break Forth One pre-conference workshops, this year with an emphasis on songwriting and worship leading. Expert presenters from Hillsong Worship, GMA Canada and artists Ben Cantelon, Carolyn Arends & Brian Doerksen will be among those heading up this year’s workshops.

About GMA Canada & Break Forth One

GMA CANADA continues to serve and invest in Canada's music community of faith based artists, musicians & proponents to inspire growth around four key values.

ARTISTIC DEPTH & COMPELLING STORYTELLING: We exist to help serve and develop artists who are creating music that is truly reaching and influencing culture.

A ROOTEDNESS IN CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY: We exist to help encourage everyone within our community to be actively connected to their local church.

A CANADIAN UNIQUENESS & CULTURAL RELEVANCY: We exist to inspire a community who celebrates their ‘Canadian-ness’ & culture with pride and intentionality.

CREATIVE ADVOCACY: We exist to help support and develop artists who, through their faith are actively using their art to be a voice for the voiceless and those in need.

BREAK FORTH ONE is Canada’s largest ecumenical church renewal and equipping conference. It is one weekend where Christians of all denominations and generations gather from all regions of Canada in one place as one church. Last year, almost 4,500 people gathered to worship and learn from artists and teachers like MercyMe, Bethel, Louie Giglio, Bruxy Cavey, Luis Palau, Gary Thomas, Shaunti Feldhahn, Gracia Burnham, Chris Brown, Abdu Murray, Carey Nieuwhof and dozens more—some of the most significant Christian musicians and thought leaders in the world.
