We are so looking forward to WorshipGod17 MidWest: Human and Holy: Healthy Tensions of our Gathered Worship, to be held July 27 – July 29, 2017, at Highview Baptist East in Louisville, KY!
“Human and Holy” describes the paradox that occurs each week as the church gathers. We meet as redeemed sinners, with all our failings, inadequacies, and limitations. But in his mercy, God makes himself known through his Spirit. He dwells with us and in us. Our common, ordinary actions abound with eternal significance.
That describes just one of the healthy tensions we need to keep as we meet with the church each week. The main sessions, and some of the seminars will address others.
Here’s the line up of main session topics and speakers:
Thursday PM (7:30pm):
Orthodox and On-fire
Friday AM (9am):
Structured and Spontaneous
Friday PM (7:30pm):
Rooted and Relevant
Saturday AM (9:00am):
Event and Every Day
Saturday AM (11:00am):
Anticipating and Already
Music this year will be led by Bob Kauflin and his son Devon, Daniel Renstrom from The Church at Brook Hills, and Sojourn Music. We’re also excited to have Caroline Cobb as well as Adam Wright (Corner Room Music) with us to share songs they’ve written to serve the church.
If you can make it earlier in the day on Thursday, there will be five pre-conference intensives from 1:30 to 5pm:
- Vocal Master Class – Sheri Gould
- Songwriting Master Class – Steve and Vikki Cook
- Growing as a Leader: Vision for the Long Haul – Bob Kauflin
- Drums Master Class – David Zimmer
- Bass Master Class – Ryan Foglesong
- Acoustic Guitar Master Class – Patrick Anderson
- Sound/Tech Intensive: Microphones, Mixers, and Loudspeakers – Doug Gould
You’ll be able to choose to attend 3 of 21 seminars this year designed to serve pastors, worship leaders, musicians, vocalists, songwriters, and tech personnel. And if you aren’t a musician, no problem! For each seminar slot we’ll offer at least one general seminar designed to increase anyone’s knowledge of and passion for God and the gospel.
If you’ve been to a WorshipGod event you know it feels like family. For three full days we get to laugh, eat, sing, learn, grow, fellowship, play, and encounter God together. There’s plenty of cool things we’ll give away, as well as, not one, but two free lunches!
We want to do everything we can to inspire, challenge, and equip you to serve your local church more effectively. And we’re passionate about it.
We hope you’ll join us to see what God will do!
