Coordinator Info
  • You will fill out the Church Registration Form for your group once you have all of your students information who will be participating. It is recommended that you have them fill out their Participant Registration Form first. Remember that EVERY student on your Church Registration Form must also fill out their individual Participant Registration Form.
  • You MUST provide your students with your email address BEFORE they are able to complete their Participant Registration Form. Once they have completed their Participant Registration form, you will receive an email confirmation that they have done so. If you have a student that says they have completed the form, yet you have not received a confirmation of such, please check your email spam folder. If there is still question, contact our office.
  • Fine Arts Coordinators will have added time to collect your Participants’ payments and compile all of your needed information after the Participant deadline, before your Church Registration deadline.

For Early Registration Pricing ($49):

Participant -

  • Participant Registration Form must be completed by March 17th

Fine Arts Coordinator

  • Complete Church Registration Form no later than March 20th. Make sure your students complete their participant registration by Fri Mar 18th so they qualify for the Early Bird pricing.
  • Pay online or postmark check no later than March 20th.

For Regular Registration Pricing ($59):

Participant -

  • Participant Registration Form must be completed by March 24th.

Fine Arts Coordinator

  • Complete Church Registration Form no later than March 27th. Make sure your students complete their participant registration by Fri Mar 24th. No late registrations are accepted.
  • Pay online or postmark check no later than March 27th.

It is your responsibility as the Church Fine Arts Coordinator to make sure early registration is done in time for your participants to receive the early pricing. If you have students who register by the Participant early registration deadline (March 17th), but you do not submit the Church Registration in time to receive this pricing (March 20th), then you will still be responsible for the Regular (not Early) Registration Pricing.  Your church may absorb this fee if necessary.

If you require paper forms, please contact our office to obtain.  ISM will only be accepting online registration forms, so you will be responsible for collecting and entering any paper forms obtained from your students if you choose this method. Please note: If you will be entering your students’ registrations online from collected paper forms, you will need to also bring paper forms containing original parent & participant signatures to the Fine Arts Festival.

It is your responsibility to make sure your students are aware of deadlines. They will be strictly enforced.

If you have any students who will have not yet used, and will be using, their 2022 $25 Merit Award Certificate, please indicate this on the Church Registration form, and then mail the original Certificate to the ISM office postmarked no later than March 27th, 2023 (which is also the payment postmark deadline if paying by check). If the original certificate is not received, the discount will be removed and you will be responsible for the full payment.

Fine Arts is a non-refundable event as the staff and budget are structured off of each year's registrations and adjusted annually to accommodate the number of registrants. For this reason, we are not able to offer refunds for no-shows, missed performances, scheduling conflicts, etc. after registration has been closed. Considerations for exceptions prior to the registration deadline may be emailed to ilsmonline@idcag.org and will be handled case-by-case.

What is Kappa Tau?

Kappa Tau is a discipleship tool of the Assemblies of God designed to help students continue discovering and developing their ministry gifts after they have graduated from high school and are no longer eligible for the Fine Arts Festival. Through this Festival, college-aged participants are given the opportunity to continue developing their ministry gifts by having their entries evaluated by qualified professionals, teachers and ministers who encourage excellence and offer ideas for improvement.  Specific information developed for the Kappa Tau portion of the festival including a Kappa Tau rule book can be found at kappatau.ag.org
