Parables Worship Ensemble 2023-2024


Parables, a worship ensemble from Goshen College, combines music, original drama, and stories to create an engaging worship experience designed to inspire, comfort, and challenge.


The theme for this year’s Parables presentation is “Walk in the Light”.  Through music, scripture, and parables the theme of looking for the light and being the light of the world are explored.
