Baptist AllState: 2023 uWorship Weekend

Columbia First Baptist Church

uWorship Weekend (a Baptist AllState event) is a fun weekend filled with music, community, and worship!  It has been a ministry of the SC Baptist Convention’s Worship & Music Office for over 40 years!

Chorus, Orchestra and Worship Band: Students grades 9-College
Middle School Worship Choir: Students grades 6-8

New students begin the process by registering for the weekend.  High school students will need to submit an audition video highlighting their abilities.  Once selected, students are invited to attend uWorship Weekend for the weekend.  As an audition only opportunity, this event draws some of the most gifted students who have a desire to grow in their faith and use their abilities for Jesus.


A Vision for 2023 and beyond

The expressed goal of uWorship Weekend: a Baptist AllState event is to provide an opportunity to raise up the next generation of worshipers and worship leaders in South Carolina churches. This event has always been a collaborative effort among state workers, worship leaders, churches, parents, and students. Our hope is that by partnering with the three Baptist colleges in South Carolina, we can give students a snapshot of how they can continue their training at the collegiate level.
