Doing God's Story: Getting Back to the Basics of Worship

Saturday, March 20, 2019

Registration 8:15 am - 9 am; Cost - $10

Pastors, worship leaders, praise team members, and even members of your congregation will benefit from developing a theology of worship based on Doing God's Story (See Goals Below). Because different sized churches have distinct needs, special consideration will be given in this workshop to churches with an attendance base of 200 or less by our presenters. Our hope, however, is that worshipers from churches of all sizes will enjoy a time of worship, fellowship, and idea sharing that aims to take part in God's Story.
