National Worship Leader Conference 2008

Last week I attended the National Worship Leader Conference here in Austin, TX. It truly was a blessing.

National Worship Leader Conference 2008

I started the conference on Monday feeling burned out and weary. By the closing night (Thursday) I felt so recharged and ready to lead worship on Sunday. That Sunday was by far, the most worshipful and God-encountering worship service we have had at our church so far. God truly used the conference to bring himself honor and praise.

Over the next few weeks, I will be posting on many of the things I learned in an attempt to help the few of you who read this blog to help your congregations draw nearer and nearer to God.

Here are the sessions I attended:

  • Creating Flow in Worship: Leading a Journey – Paul Baloche
  • Theology of Expressive Worship – Ross Parsley
  • Licks, Tricks & Cheats for the Acoustic Guitarist – Andy Chamberlain
  • Rehearsing Your Team – Tony Guerrero
  • Creating a Culture of Worship – Buddy Owens
  • Building Worship Teams for Small Churches – John Chisum

The two sessions I found most useful were: Creating Flow with Paul Baloche and Creating a Culture of Worship with Buddy Owens. They really changed the way I approached leading worship and choosing songs. I am excited to share what I learned in the next few posts.

Below is a picture of the closing night with Israel Houghton.
