Track: Pray Musically [clear filter]
Wednesday, June 21
 

1:00pm CDT

God’s Worship Institute
God's plan for a dynamic relationship with Him is perpetuated & developed in our ministries as we teach our praise teams and musicians how to worship. The Bible already outlines this plan of action through the Mosaic, Davidic, and Pauline Schools of Worship. Listen as Dr. Vernon Whaley, Dean of the Liberty University School of Music, explains how the origin, organization, operation, and opportunities of these three schools of worship serve as a Biblical model for discipling our own praise teams and musicians.

Teaching Public Prayer to a Congregation & The Procession of Praise
  • Teaching Public Prayer to a Congregation
    - Brannon Hancock
    Scripture encourages us to "pray without ceasing." Such lives of constant prayer flow out of corporate worship, which might be understood as one continuous prayer  - dialogue with the Father, led by the Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our task as worship leaders, therefore, is to teach this understanding of worship to our congregations, and to facilitate the act of public prayer. We will explore this topic together and share theological reflections, contextual considerations and practical advice.
  • The Procession of Praise
    - Mike Harland
    What we can learn about prayer through a walk through Psalm 68

Lessons from the Worship Tent
Exodus 33 gives record of Moses and Joshua going to the “Meeting Tent” at the end of each day to spend time in worship of The Lord. The very Presence of the Lord would enter the tent while they talked to each other as friend speaks with friend. Listen as Dr. Vernon Whaley, Dean of the Liberty University School of Music, explains how the lessons learned in the “Meeting Tent” still apply to our own worship so that you can speak to God as friend speaks with friend, too!

What to Say & Bible and Music
  • 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.

(Matt 28).  Learn how the Great Commission is an outgrowth of our private time of worship with God.  Listen as Dr. Vernon Whaley, Dean of the Liberty University School of Music explains how to become a worshiper and in the process receive the power and presence of God on you and your ministry. This workshop is practical and essential for worship leaders seeking to find creative ways to disciple their worship teams.

Why Church? Rediscovering Worship and Mission for a New Generation
I’m a worship leader and a church planter. Both for the same reasons: I love the church. But I’m also very sensitive to the anti-authoritarian, anti-institutional sentiments of other Christian millennials like me.
