While an advanced degree is often demanded by senior positions, continuing education is required by many certifications in financial counseling. A graduate degree in finance, typically offered as a master's in finance (MSF) or an MBA with a concentration in finance, can provide a competitive advantage.

I enjoyed listening to Total Experience I had to research through google to learn more about the choir. The choir caught my ear at the Northwest African American Museum hosting the ROOTS festival. Total Experience was Music to my ears and a joy to listen to. Thank You

I so loved "duetting"with you from my spot in the audience at Bumbershoot 2013. The waves, smiles, kisses blown back and forth were much appreciated. I'm a pro singer and songwriter, and am sure hoping that we can collaborate. That would be great. I have songs for you! I wrote one for my friend Jacques Robinson, dad of Nate called So Ready To Go. I'm 65, so don't wait too long! :)

Wow, I can't believe it was 40 years ago this spring that this little woman showed up in the music room at Franklin High School to take over our choir class. Mr. O.L. Mitchell, our Dean of Students, had let us start the class to give some of us wayward Black kids something to do besides just hang out in the basement. He even found us some old choir robes to wear. Pat was probably our 4th musician. Shortly after she took over, the pressure to close it all down got out of hand at Franklin and at Roosevelt. You know, the old separation of church and state thing. Pat told us, no problem - we could join together and rehearse at Mt. Zion. By summer it became a community choir and the name became TEGC. PRAISE GOD for His grace, mercy and favor!

My family and I first discovered the Total Experience Gospel Choir in 2009 when I stumbled across a notice about a performance at shoreline Community College. It was love at first sight (and sound).
We then discovered The Black Nativity and have been going to that for three years now since December 2010. We get a block of 7 seats (10 the first year, some moved since) and it is now our family tradition. We just saw the show last Tuesday (December 18, 2012) and came away uplifted and filled with love, hope and faith - as we always do. I think this is the only church experience my grown children and their children have all year, and I feel blessed to be able to share this with them and have especially my grandsons feel the love and the presence of God. Thank you all, and God bless you. I am already looking forward to next season.
I love you all,


November 28, 2012

Amazing Sweet the Sound! Please send me information about how I might audition for your choir. I have worked with the Northwest Arts Group. I am 16 and enjoy classical, opera, Nat King Cole, Shakespeare, and so much more! Please contact my Mother at 206.551.0134. I look forward to hearing from you.


November 27, 2012

Good evening. I love the good job and I want to know if its possible to join the choir. Giving God praise is my lifestyle

Pastor Pat, My twins have had the great privilege to sing with you through their high school in Sequim, Wa. in the past. I just watched an interview with you talking about your experiences with the choir in louisiana and gulfport ms. There was a connection I didn't know about until tonight. Bless you for what you have shared with my family directly and in a round about way. Just wanted to tell you also that if you remember my twins, they are in New York. Ant has his own web page now which you could find under ISAIAH J.O.N.E.S I am sure a word of encouragement from you would mean a LOT to him, and to Jenn who has also a Facebook acct. I am sure that you don't know that I learned to love Collards because of you, so thanks for that too! God Bless you Pastor Pat. PMeier

First time I saw TGEC was the late 80's and have enjoyed every stage along the way.
My 3rd time seeing Black Nativity (last night),was stimulating as ever. Next time I must get last row seats so I can dance & sway standing--think I rocked the seat out of the bolts, esp. during the Electric Slide!

Good Day Pastor Wright: God has certainly used you for His service. This is my first time as a visitor. And at the suggestion of a choir member who drives cab for the North End Taxi Company and plays instruments with an orchestra(he gave me a company biz card with the, and told me to check it out. I hv been complaining about the lack of Music Opertunities in Seattle. I write music and like 2 sing and would like 2 audition for your choir (he/the cabbie) said I should try...) I am alcohol/drug free... Texans hv a special talent 4 music. It wd. be great 2 be equally yoked musically and it would be an honor to hear your choir again. I read at awe at the music you've done with others. I was just listening to a Steeley Dan CD yesterday(Monday) I currently live in Lake City and will seek refuge in a more compatible community when and if God is willing. There are not many Christians here. My opinion only. I have been made 2 feel more uncomfortable than needs be. Oh, my complaining again. Got 2 read my morning scriptures. God Bless you, your family, the choir and it's efforts,

On 4/15 you sang at my dad's (Jerry McArthur) funeral. I've never heard the group sing before but you are all truly amazing. My dad was sick for about 1 year with cancer, he planned many aspects of his funeral prior to his death. He wanted the service to be a celebration of his life. You and the group brought the songs he choose to life, my dad would have loved it! Thank you so much!

Shannen Pack

Thank you so much for making my choir tour amazing! Being able to sing at the fireside with you as well as at your church was one of best experiences I have ever had in my life. I was touched by your songs, message and most especially by your spirits. Continue to uplift others with your music and please visit the Mountain View Choir in Orem Utah sometime soon!

My wife, Di'Ana & I went to your performance last night in Shoreline. We took along a friend of ours & her 8 year old daughter who were not in a position to afford the show. They both love music & are gifted singers themselves! It was a real treat for them & us too! (when we picked them up, Astacia (8 yr old) had her Bible with her & we talked about the good book all the way to the show.) We all enjoyed the praise music & just wanted to thank you all & the Lord for such a perfect evening!! It was perfection!!! Thanks for keeping the Christ in Christmas music!!!

Thank you SO MUCH for the impromptu singing of Happy Birthday to our dear friend Myrtle while in Carthage, Texas, October 30th. It made her special day even more special. It was a real pleasure meeting Pastor Pat and all the talented members of TE. It's funny how small this world is sometimes. All of you living in the Great Northwest where we used to be. Sharing our stories of the small towns we lived in (Ms. Whitney from LaConner) was great fun! Can't wait to see you again when I return to Washington.
