Pat Barker University comes to Creekside 2017


Pat Barker, a well-known bass singer and Gospel music personality from Alabama, has begun to share his wealth of experience to aspiring singers and accomplished artists alike. These sessions of training and encouragement are called the Pat Barker University. Offering vocal coaching to stage presence, Barker touches on everything the artist needs to present Christ.

Creekside Gospel Music Convention 2017 is thrilled to be able to present the Pat Barker University to artists and attendees for a nominal cost on a first come, first served basis. Barker presented this seminar at the Southern Gospel Weekend in Oxford, Ala., and those who present were satisfied.

PBU attendee Charlie Sexton said recently on Facebook: “If it is anything like the one at Oxford, it will be extraordinary. I encourage everyone that can to attend. Well worth the money!”
