In a culture when Sunday “worship” is much more created, polished, and qualified than ever, it is useful to keep in mind what definitely matters to God when we meet.
That is the theme of our 15th WorshipGod conference this year, to be held July 25-28 at Grace Church in Frisco, TX: Extraordinary: The Weekly Worship of the Gathered Church.
Sunday mornings are not rock concerts. They are not pep rallies or Planet Cup finals. But just about every time the church gathers, all of heaven requires notice.
Each and every and just about every Sunday we meet with saints Christ has redeemed and created 1 by way of his death on the cross. We join in with the hosts of heaven about the throne (Heb. 12:22-24). God speaks powerfully and personally to us by way of his living and active preached word (Heb. four:12). The Triune God reveals himself and builds up the church by way of a variety of gifts, acts of service, and activities (1 Cor. 12:four-six). What could be much more thrilling?
What to Anticipate
WorshipGod conferences seek to equip and encourage these who lead and strategy congregational worship in 3 locations:
- Theology, covering locations like the nature and character of God, a biblical theology of worship, the primacy of God’s Word and the gospel, and much more.
- Heart, addressing the attitudes, motives, purity, integrity, loved ones life, and passion of the worshiper.
- Talent, applying to locations like musicianship, leadership, and communication.
But it is not just for leaders. We also give basic seminars will advantage any individual who desires to develop in their passion for God’s glory in Christ.
You will also delight in some remarkable giveaways in every single session, totally free lunches, lots of laughter, and a really serious pursuit of engaging with God. Individuals who come to WorshipGod conferences worth obtaining biblical foundations for what they do. They see worship in life as critical as worship in song and definitely appreciate the regional church. When I’m thankful for larger conferences (and will be speaking at some of them), we aim for a loved ones, non-hype really feel at WorshipGod. We pursue excellence in all we do, but Sunday mornings must be characterized mostly by the participation of God’s individuals, not production or efficiency.
