Hymn Sings

  Conference Center
The tradition of singing the great hymns of the faith is not lost at Mount Hermon. A beautiful time of reflection and worship, immersed in the history of the songs of our faith. All are welcomed to journey through the powerful words of these hymns.
Music is led by Dave Burns from the piano, and also features a special musician, listed below.
  • A Note from Our Program Team

    Would you value the opportunity to sing congregationally the great hymns of our faith In Jesus Christ?

    We constantly hear that it’s becoming a lost part of the corporate worship experience. Come join us as we blend our voices as an offering to the Lord at our next Hymn Sing in the auditorium at Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center. Dave Talbott, who started this program years ago, has retired and moved to Santa Barbara. I learned so much from him!

    It is my privilege to carry on this tradition, bringing some incredible guest vocalists and musicians to the Hymn Sings as we reboot this fall with two additional sings in the Spring.

    Bring a group from your church and stay for lunch for an extended time of fellowship.

    If you have some favorites, you’d like to hear and sing, fill out this form with your requests
