The WorshipGod09 website is now up. Here’s what I posted on the home page:
What are we teaching future generations about worshiping God? What kind of legacy will we leave? Will those who follow us be more impressed with our music or our God? Maybe the psalmist had those questions in mind when he wrote, “One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts” (Psalm 145:4 ESV)?
To equip us for declaring the mighty acts of God to the next generation, John Piper, C.J. Mahaney, Jeff Purswell, and Thabiti Anyabwile will be addressing us at the general sessions of WorshipGod09. Keith and Kristyn Getty will also be with us, sharing their perspectives on songwriting along and singing some of their timeless songs.
Seminars this year include intermediate and advanced instrumental tracks, encouraging physical expressiveness, raising up young worship leaders, teaching children about worship, songwriting, media applications, and much more. Don Whitney will be back to talk about family worship and cultivating a thirst for God.
Something new this year is pre-conference intensives on Wednesday afternoon, 1:00-4:30. A limited number of vocalists, songwriters, and worship leaders can sign up to receive more focused training. Register early to reserve a spot.
Whether your church numbers less than 50 or more than 5000, you’ll find plenty to benefit from at the conference, including a well-stocked bookstore, free lunches on-site, and loads of free stuff. Best of all, you’ll have the opportunity to worship God with like-minded Christians from hundreds of churches who share your passion for glorifying the Savior and serving his church.
I hope you and your team can join us as we gather to worship our great God and learn more about how to glorify him from generation to generation.
