Prairie Faculty Member Receives Two Awards
November 18, 2014

On Thursday, November 13, the Gospel Music Association of Canada recognized Brian Doerksen with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Brian, the Director of Prairie’s new Music and Worship Arts program, has devoted most of his life to creating music—lasting songs of worship and encouragement sung in churches around the world.  Some of his most familiar songs include Hallelujah, Your Love is Amazing, Jesus, Hope of the Nations and Come, Now is the Time to Worship.

His latest project, recorded with his band The SHIYR Poets, is a journey through the ancient Psalms. The group’s debut album entitled Songs For The Journey, Volume One was also recognized on the night, picking up the award for Inspirational Album of the Year.

On behalf of all students and staff, we at Prairie are proud to have Brian in our community and on our team and would like to congratulate him on these awards. His contributions to the global church continue to leave a legacy of music and what it means to worship from the heart. We are especially grateful for his mentorship of the next generation of worship leaders and songwriters.
