In 1917 the first choir of Southern Baptist Church was organized under the leadership of Ms. C. W. Williams. Since that time, the Music Ministry of the Southern Baptist Church has been committed to ministering to the community in song. Over the years there have been various choirs. In 1977, the choirs were organized under one Music Department and several years later the Mass Choir Ministry was formed. The Music Department has had a rich and exceptional history. The talented and gifted Ministers of Music along with great musicians have contributed to its success and made the choir what it is today.
The Southern Baptist Church Mass Choir is currently under the musical leadership of Reverend Dan W. Larkin, Jr. who is in his 30th year in this position. The Mass Choir has made great contributions to the spiritual life of the church and community in song.
The Southern Baptist Church Mass Choir is noted for its "Annual Choir Day Concert". This tradition began in 1965 and continues to be the choir's highlight of the year. The concert is held the third Sunday in October each year. The choir invites its former members to participate in this homecoming event, and the ensemble comprises The Southern Baptist Church & Family Mass Choir.
In March 2008 the Southern Baptist Church Mass Choir recorded its first CD, entitled "Come Into The House." It was released in July the same year. On May 28, 2010 the choir was named one of the runners-up in the "I Hear Music in the Air" event that was held at the Aronoff Theater in Cincinnati, OH. The Mass choir has performed for numerous events, most recently at venues such as Freedom Center, Black Family Reunion, and singing behind several recording artists including the late Dr. Charles Fold, Dottie Peoples and Donald Lawrence.
