  • What to Say
    - Rich Kirkpatrick
    While we as worship leaders spend a lot of energy on our music skills, what we say matters, too. Should I just speak freely at the moment as the Spirit leads or should I write out my prayers? How do I stay true to who I am while communicating to the church what I know God wants to say to them? In this presentation, you will learn that authenticity counts! But, you will also learn that being authentic indeed requires some practiced communication skills.  Whether it is leading a song transition, sharing a prayer or giving announcements growing in communication will significantly improve your effectiveness. 
  • Bible and Music
    - Dr. Brannon Hancock
    Not only does the Bible portray and guide our use of music in congregational worship, but the Church has a rich tradition of drawing upon the Bible as a primary source for worship music, so that the word is not only read but sung as well. This mutually reinforcing relationship has nourished Christian worship all the way back to it's "pre-history" in the worship of the people of Israel, and is key to the renewal of congregational worship today.
