With less than 2 weeks before this BIG event, if you live and worship within driving distance of Kansas City, you’ll find the National Worship Leader Conference (NWLC) a most valuable training for your worship team. Looking on my online map of choice, that’d be cities like St. Louis, Wichita, Topeka, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Lincoln, Omaha, Des Moines, and Springfield too, both Missouri and Illinois. And for the ambitious, especially those with hybrid cars, you can drive it from Little Rock, Memphis, and even Peoria.
The National Worship Leader Conference is touted as the biggest worship leader conference of the year and it’s less than 2 weeks away! Get to Kansas City on July 16-19, 2012 for a great road trip. 2 big highlights for why you need to be there:
Unique Workshop Experiences
You will have more than 60 unique learning experiences to choose from; and with an added workshop time slot this year, you will be able to attend 9 different workshops. It’s like squeezing a year of training and experience into only 3½ days. Lead wiser, plan better, play or sing more expansively, offer the prayers of your congregation with more authority and humility–play, present or perform with greater passion, devotion and skill. And ride the edge of technology without falling off.
Song DISCovery Listening Panel
Get your latest worship song in front of a panel of experts, which will include songwriters and major publishers, for critique and the chance to get your song on an upcoming Song DISCovery CD. Bring your song on a CD along with 5 copies of the lyrics. Songs will be chosen at random.
Worship leaders who’ll be leading worship leaders in times of worship and training include: Israel Houghton, Crowder, Paul Baloche, Elevation Worship, Laura Story, Rend Collective Experiment, All Sons & Daughters, One Sonic Society, Brenton Brown, Travis Ryan, Aaron Keys, Gateway Worship and many many more! Oh, I’ll be there too, leading 2 workshops: basic social media and advanced social media.
And 1 more thing. This year’s special pre-conference SING! covers every aspect of congregational singing: starting with the individual voice to the multi-voice choir, the “HOW TOs” of getting your congregation singing, the biblical reasons we sing, and the transforming power of worshiping together. Good? Great!
