  • Right Worship: Sounding Creation’s Praise

    Dr Jim Hart - 
Institute of Worship Studies


    In this class we will explore the importance of orthodoxy, or right worship, to the ordering of our own lives to Christ. We will use John 4:1-26 as a prime example of God’s call to right worship, and we’ll look at worship as precisely the most important activity of any Christian. Emphasis will be given to worship as play and leading the praise of creation, conducing to Christians being poured out for the reconciliation of the entire created order. We will then move into an exploration of worship as participation in heavenly things, calling us to greater transformation into Christlikeness through Word and Table. From 1 Corinthians 10:14-22 we will consider how partaking of the Lord’s supper sends us on mission to be broken and poured out for the life of the world. Led by Dr. Jim Hart, President of the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies.

  • The Art of Worship Through Technology

    AE Global Media


    Why use technology in worship? Art is defined as: something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings -Merriam-Webster Dictionary. How can the church use this to reach their community? Technologies are an effective way to create art in worship. They help create a visual impact that words alone may not communicate. They engage the congregation and encourage participation. Technology uses new ways to talk about an old message. Learn key ways to create art in worship use technology.

  • Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

    Lindsey Benedict


    As female worship leaders, we all share the same struggle. We try to find our beauty in how we look and how well we perform. When our appearance and performance fall short of the world's standards, or even our own standards, we are faced with an internal crisis. God is calling us to pursue a different kind of beauty, an inner beauty that never fades (1 Peter 3:4). During this workshop, we will outline this beautiful pursuit while we rediscover our identity in Christ and gain supernatural confidence as worship leaders and women of God!

  • Don’t Just Lead Songs, Learn How to Pastor and Move a Room

    Mike Haight - Slingshot


    We’ll talk about: what pastoring an experience means; how the church is hungry for transcendent gatherings; unique worship style; and verbal transitions.

  • Israel: The Land of Praise

    Dr Richard Liverance - Israel Ministry of Tourism


    At the center of worship is the exultation and proclamation of the God of Israel and His redemptive purposes. The prophet Isaiah once wrote, “Break forth into a shout of joy, you mountains, O forest and every tree in it; for the LORD has redeemed Jacob and in Israel He shows forth His glory” (Isaiah 44:23). Why does God delight in Israel, and why has He chosen to glorify Himself there? We invite you to come on a journey of discovery with us as we explore the importance of Israel, and how actually being in the land of Israel can transform your understanding of God’s redemptive purposes and your passion for loving, serving, and worshipping Him.
