Creating a Worship Songwriting Culture

STEPHEN DUNCAN | The Worship Coalition | Forest City, IA

For songwriters, the responsibility is immense. It’s been said that most Christians learn or develop their theology from the songs they sing at church or hear on the radio. That means that what our songs communicate is incredibly important. In this session you’ll learn how to set up and steward a thriving songwriting community that fosters creativity and impacts church culture in a powerful way.

The Creative Launch

The Creative Abyss

JASON SQUIRES | The Creative Launch | Woodland, CA

Being a creative on a staff with other people who aren’t can be a challenge. Your lead pastor doesn’t get you and the person watching the bottom line is supportive of your ideas. It’s frustrating! Let’s talk about it and discuss some strategies to help you connect better with the non-creatives on your team.

The Creative Launch

JASON SQUIRES | The Creative Launch | Woodland, CA

Creativity & Coffee

JASON SQUIRES | The Creative Launch | Woodland, CA

Moving From Song Leading to Worship Leading

CINDY KENNY | New Hope West & New Hope Christian College | Eugene, OR

There is a distinct difference between just leading a bunch of songs and leading people in worship. In this breakout, we will explore what it means to truly be a worship leader versus a song leader. We will look at specific things a worship leader can do to keep themselves sensitive to what the Holy Spirit is saying while reaching out to engage the congregation and lead them into times of deep and meaningful worship.

Creating a Culture of Debrief

CINDY KENNY | New Hope West & New Hope Christian College | Eugene, OR

God is worthy of excellence in all that we do, but pursuing excellence can be misunderstood and/or done poorly. We will look at the biblical foundation for excellence in ministry and discover ways in which we can create a positive culture of debrief that will honor God and move our teams forward with constructive feedback.
