A long time "vision" of Linda Harrell (to conduct workshops all over the world concerning the Ministry of Music). was expressed to Rev. William (deceased) and Rev. Barbara Gray ( deceased) was the sponsor of all the choirs at Reaper Baptist Church. She too expressed the same concerns and need for the choirs at Reaper Baptist Church to have a Music Workshop. Thus, was the beginning of scheduling, planning and organizing the first workshop on the Ministry of Music.
