History and Mission

Meridian Herald's initial project was modern camp meeting services on October 2, 3, 1998 at the historic Salem Camp Ground, just east of  Atlanta. Fred B. Craddock preached and Steven Darsey and the Meridian Chorale offered music. Meridian Herald went on to offer Georgia's established Southern Folk Advent and Southern Folk Passion services. We initiated an annual program with Emory University exploring science and theology and now present an annual program of African American music with renowned composer/theologian Dwight Andrews, who chairs our advisory board.  This ongoing collaboration is included in the article on the Atlanta Colored Music Festival in the New Georgia Encyclopedia. Meridian Herald also founded and supports the Meridian Chorale.

mission statement

Meridian Herald exists to promote the interaction of worship, music and culture, bridging communities and traditions of the past and present. Through worship services, concerts, programs, and publications of exceptional quality and artistic character, Meridian Herald seeks to challenge the church and society to higher ideals of creativity and moral purpose. Meridian Herald's unique worship services, science and theology programs, lectures, storytelling events, and commissioned music address contemporary society's need for imagination and spiritual depth, while emphasizing the indigenous traditions of the South.
