Corpus Christi Baptist Association Worship Workshop
Doing God's Story: Getting Back to the Basics of Worship
We are currently looking at a date in late March and will begin publicity with the new date soon.
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.
