Millington Performing Arts Academy

MPAA seeks to train the next generation of musicians and worshipers for the growth of God’s Kingdom.

We aim to inspire children to use their artistic talents to serve and glorify God.

Our Christ-centered approach allows children to experience the joy of music and dance while developing a lifelong passion for worship. The Millington Performing Arts Academy is an extension of the Worship Ministry at Millington FBC. We seek to train the next generation of teachers, musicians, and most of all worshippers through private instruction.

“MPAA is a great place to pick up that instrument you have always wanted to learn how to play.”

“MPAA is a great resource for students in the Millington, Tipton County, and other surrounding areas. If you or someone you know is interested in learning an instrument, look no further.”

“MPAA is Christ-centered, so you can learn to play an instrument and also use it to glorify the Lord.”

MPAA is more than a music and ballet school; it’s a place where children can grow in their love for God while exploring their creative talents.
