Camp Kirkland

Over the past three decades, Camp Kirkland has emerged as one of the premier church musicians in the nation. He is recognized as the pioneer in establishing instrumental music as a viable medium in the life of the church music program. In 1971, he began the instrumental music program at First Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Florida. This program is still a model of excellence in music and effectiveness in ministry. Students and associates of Mr. Kirkland lead many of the great church orchestras around the country.
