Guidelines

Pensacola Christian College takes a conservative stand on music, and we ask participants to choose music that is suitable for a traditional church setting.

  • The music competition is an opportunity for you to use your talents for the Lord. Choose a song that is God-honoring, workable for your talent, and representative of what would be in a Teen Extreme camp service. Lyrics should be distinctly Christian. Music in the style of contemporary Christian, country, jazz, rock, rap, R&B, or pop should not be used. Due to time constraints, instrumentalists should avoid classical pieces.
  • Limit music selections to 3 minutes or less.
  • Performances may be a cappella or with accompaniment (piano is provided). Conservative soundtracks can be used but must be approved by the camp songleader when you sign up after the evening service.
  • Each church may have a maximum of three participants/groups in each category.

Judging

Performers will be evaluated on stage presence, communication, expression, performance quality, and musicality.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be announced in camp services and receive points toward their team’s overall competition. As time permits, some winners may be asked to perform in a camp service.
