The Kentucky Baptist Convention is a cooperative mission and ministry organization made up of nearly 2,400 Baptist churches in Kentucky. Some of the convention’s most celebrated programs are the Children’s Choir, All-State Junior High Choir, and Youth Choir & Orchestra musical ensembles! For the last five years, Hatfield Media has had the joy of producing the convention’s holiday program, "Kentucky Baptist Choirs and Chorales Christmas Special.” The 2019 program will air on KET during the week of Christmas.
Client: Kentucky Baptist Convention
A KENTUCKY CHRISTMAS TRADITION
The Kentucky Baptist Convention offers three different musical ensembles for children of all ages: the Children’s Choir, an auditioned choir for grades 4-6, the All-State Junior High Choir, comprised of 70+ students in grades 7-9; and the Kentucky Baptist Convention Youth Choir & Orchestra, a 60+ vocal chorale and orchestra for students in grades 9-12. These ensembles strive to keep musically talented youth involved and challenged in church music by addressing the social, spiritual, and musical needs unique to this age group.
Every year, these choirs rehearse during a 3-day weekend at different times throughout the calendar year (the Children’s choir meets in late April, the Junior High choir meets in early November, and the Youth Choir meets in June), and the location rotates to different churches around the state of Kentucky. The ensembles then set out to present several worship experiences in Kentucky Baptist churches.
During the different programs, each ensemble performs one Christmas song. For the past five years, the Hatfield Media video team has traveled across Kentucky to record all of the choir and chorale performances. The KET "Kentucky Baptist Choirs and Chorales Christmas Special” is a compilation of all the Christmas songs these ensembles perform. The result is a heartwarming, 30-minute special that has become a much anticipated hallmark of the holiday season for members of the Kentucky Baptist Convention.
“We love Jason Stewart, working with him and the team at KBC,” said Chuck Rogers, Chief Technology Officer and video producer at Hatfield Media. “I’m blown away by the talent I see every year. The talent-level and ability of the staff to pull off a show in a short weekend is impressive.”

“Hatfield Media has been able to communicate our message and methods through outstanding use of video and audio,” said Jason “Bubba” Stewart of the Kentucky Baptist Convention. “The whole team has strengthened our own visions and given us confidence in what we are doing. I cannot say enough good about Drake and every employee he has on his effective team. I would highly recommend the use of Hatfield Media for any type of communication need an organization might have.”
