About Our Music Director
We feel very fortunate to have Malek M. McDuffie as our Music Director. Malek is a native of Sumter, South Carolina. He started playing the drums at the age of 12 and considers music his hobby as well as his career. He is currently a junior at Anderson University studying Music Education.
Malek was a 2014 and 2015 participant in the South Carolina All-State Chorus. In 2015, he scored among the top five male vocalists who participated in All-State. This past February, he was the winner of the Freshman Men Category at the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) meeting at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC.
In Sumter, Malek participated in many ministries at various churches with traditional as well as contemporary music styles. He has also participated in many workshops and classes with topics based around “Singing in Church” and the “Importance of Church Music.”
There are musical opportunities for individuals who are unable to serve full time in the choir, but are willing to share their musical talents, vocal or instrumental, on an occasional basis, especially during the summer months. Anyone interested in our musical program should call the church office at 864-639-2101 or contact us via e-mail.
