You Are Not Alone: Building Community in Ministry

Joi Hailey | Rolling Hills Community Church | Tualatin, OR

One of the most important parts of sustaining a healthy ministry as a worship leader is having a group of people to find unity and support with. A regular gathering of other worship leaders can provide that kind of unity to help sustain you as you navigate the highs and lows of being a ministry leader. Come see how this model has worked in the Portland Area and get ideas for how you can launch an authentic community in your area. 

Leading From the Piano

Have you wondered how to take the basic piano skill you’ve acquired through the years and translate that into playing piano as you sing and lead worship? Moving from note reading to chord playing and/or accompanying yourself on piano while you sing takes practice, but this breakout is designed to help you gain confidence as you work toward accompanying yourself during worship. 

Follow the Leader

Michelle Haywood Smith | River Valley Church | Grants Pass, OR

In order for there to be leaders, there must also be followers. Many worship leaders and ministry team members are either volunteers or are in an associate role. And even lead worship pastors are in a position to be following the vision and direction of the lead teaching pastor and the elder board. This class will be a conversation about the challenges, responsibilities, and opportunities that come with both being a leader and a follower, and some thoughts on how we can be better at both.

Battling Discouragement as a Worship Leader

Chris Voigt | Dayspring Fellowship | Keizer, OR

It doesn’t take long before you realize it…being in ministry is not all sunshine, roses, and hallelujahs. There are ups and downs, highs and lows, there’s the good, and the hard. So what do you do when the hard seems overwhelming? How do you keep pressing on? Discouragement in ministry can come from a thousand different directions; criticism, conflict, betrayal, disappointment. After being in ministry for more than 25 years, Chris is well-equipped to share hope and help for those seasons of discouragement you may be facing now, or that will surely come your way.

Shepherding Your Team

The members of your worship team are so much more than just the providers of the musical or technical skill that you need.

Maybe you’ve heard it said, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Without developing intentionality in our shepherding, it can be challenging to communicate care for our team members. Come dialogue with us about the ways you have felt cared for, and how you can care for your team, both collectively and individually.

Refocusing Our Vision for Worship

Tim Smith | Worship Without Borders | Beaverton, OR

What is your vision for worship in your church? What is He revealing? If people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. Proverbs 29:18 MSG  Evangelist DL Moody said, "If God be your partner, make your plans big." We need big vision, big faith, word-drenched, Spirit-empowered worship in our churches today in the challenging season. Come and refocus on Him.
