Gary Vidito Speaks at University of the Cumberlands

Williamsburg, Ky. - On Monday, November 14, the convocation seminar featured Gary Vidito. His unique style of worship brought the congregation to its feet. By changing the lyrics of popular songs of do-wop and from groups like the Beach Boys and the Mamas and Papas, Vidito gave worship a new perspective.

"Some of the most important jobs in church are not those that can be seen," said Vidito as he strummed a guitar.

Although preaching does spread the Word of God, Vidito feels that by incorporating music into the mix, it will speak more to the younger generation.

University of the Cumberlands, located in Williamsburg, Ky., is a private liberal arts college in its 116th year of operation. Cumberland offers four undergraduate degrees in 37 major fields of study, 30 minors and 9 pre-professional programs, as well as online and accelerated, nontraditional programs for busy adults.
