Hymn Lovers Conference


As the annual Hymn Lovers Conference wrapped up its 7th year, many would agree that one of the highlights of this year's conference was to hear from one of Tampa’s patriots, Mrs. Curtis Wilson. The 90 year old’s late husband was one of the founders of the historic Wilson Funeral Home.

Carlton Burgess, HLC Founder says, I had no idea that Mrs. Wilson and I share a deep love for the hymns of the church. She brought the house down during the conference with her sermon about the need to to keep hymn singing alive. Her words were interrupted with her inserting favorite hymns. The crowd enthusiastically joined in every time.

Mission Statement Hymn Lovers Conference Our mission is centered around Ephesians 5:19 that says speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.

It is our mission to herald world-wide that the traditional hymn remains relevant and is a needed tool for spiritual maturation. It is our endeavor to constantly provide academic and practical support to the music ministry of churches worldwide with the desire to promote excellence. We also endeavor to be a vehicle where new hymns and/ or hymn arrangements are introduced ultimately to be used by the local congregation.
