Since 2000 Sovereign Grace has been hosting a worship conference every other year. We had planned to hold another one in 2010 but plans have changed. Due to the fact that we hold two other conferences every other year, we decided to go ahead and have the next WorshipGod conference August 5-8, 2009.
The tentative theme is “From Generation to Generation.” I’m thinking we’ll focus on the way forms, methods, practices, and most importantly, the substance of corporate worship is passed on from one generation to the next. What should we hold on to? What should we leave behind? What should we reconsider? Who makes the decisions? Are separate meetings our only option when ministering to different generations? I also hope to address some of the ideas that have been floating around in our culture, and provide direction that will help us pursue congregational worship that expresses unchanging biblical truth in a way that is Christ-exalting, passionate, relevant, and humble.
As always, we’re planning on giving away lots of stuff, having some great teaching and music, and equipping folks to serve their churches more effectively. I’ll pass on more information as we have it.
