An interview with our new Director of Music, David Wilcox

David Wilcox has been a Minister of Music and Worship since 1976.  He served Presbyterian and United Methodist churches over the past 44 years in Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina.  He led large multi-choir programs and began a music ministry on a church planting team.  His last two appointments show evidence of his capacity to rebuild and revitalize the music ministry.  For the past 15 years, he served Saint Mark United Methodist Church (Seneca, SC), helping grow its music ministry into one of the finest in the South Carolina United Methodist Conference.  His choirs have appeared by invitation at the South Carolina Chapter of American Choral Directors’ fall conventions.

Mr. David Wilcox earned degrees from Brevard College, Queens College, and Bob Jones University.  Other professional endeavors include conducting the Key Koraliers and the Boychoir Greater Anderson Musical Arts Consortium.  He was the founding Dean of the Greater Anderson Chapter of the American Guild of Organist.  He taught courses in Worship, Music Appreciation, Music History, Music Theory, and Organ and Piano as an adjunct instructor at both Anderson University and Erskine College. David grew up in Denver, NC, and is returning “home” to enjoy his family home on Lake Norman and spoil his grandchildren.  He has 2 sons and a daughter, and 5 grandchildren. David’s passion is leading and equipping God’s people, the Church, to grow in grace God has given them to worship and make God known.
