Somebody’s Going to WorshipGod11 for Free

Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post about why you (or someone you know) should get a free registration to WorshipGod11: The Gathering. I was humbled by the responses. Many people shared the challenging circumstances they’re in, while others hoped to win a registration for someone else. Thanks for displaying the selfless heart of the Savior.

So, to the point. I picked three names and then chose three through a random number generator. But before I announce the winners, I thought a couple were particularly creative. Here’s one from Kevin:

As God uses me to lead His people in worship, I want to CMajor live-changing transformation by and through His Spirit, and not just AMinor emotional response and pick-me-up. My desire is to have Gsus lifted up, and that God’s glory will never BDiminished.

I also enjoyed this one from Emily:

We’d like to win a trip to come and Worship God with you.
As newlyweds our funds our tight, and this year had to choose
We went to Next to better learn to share God with the world
But would love to join the Gathering when your winner is revealed!

Kathy put together an acrostic. Kind of.

Why I Want to Attend WORSHIP GOD 2011:

W – Worship, Wonderful Worship
O – Outrageously Outstanding Organization
R – Refreshing, Reviving Renewal
S – Singing Spiritual Songs
H – Hearing Hilarious HMark HAltrogee*
I – Intensive Instrumental Instruction
P – Powerful, Passionate Preaching

G – God-Glorifying, Grace-Giving GOSPEL
O – did I say Outrageously Outstanding Organization?
D – Delicious, Delectable Dining

Unfortunately, I didn’t pick people based on creativity. Okay, so the three people I chose are:

John Mark Patrick (a solo pastor/worship leader at a rural Presbyterian church)
Jeff Skipper (full time worship pastor, seminary student, husband, and dad)
Michael (part time music director, never been to a worship conference)

The three people chosen “at random” are:

Leigh-Ann Eshleman
Aaron (comment #56)
Susan Hart (who wants to send the worship leader of her inner city church plant)

We’ll be emailing you information on how to get your free registration.

So that’s it.

No, wait! We’re not done!

I also want to give a free registration to those people in another country who left a comment. I think I found three (but if I missed you, let me know):

Erena from Auckland, New Zealand
Samuel from Australia
Will from London, UK

You’ll also be receiving information on how to register for the conference at no cost.

I’d better stop before I give everyone a free registration.

I wanted to publicly thank Jamie Brown, one of the seminar speakers. After reading the comments people were leaving, he offered to cover two registrations out of his conference budget. If his generosity has inspired you, email me through the contact tab above, and I can arrange for you to bless someone with a free registration.

Thanks again for your desire to be equipped, or to see others equipped, in using music and God’s Word to magnify the glory of our great Savior, Jesus Christ. If you didn’t win, I pray God provides the resources for you to come join us. In any case, we’re working on live streaming the main sessions, and will be offering most of the breakout and main messages as free downloads after the conference.

    That’s awesome Bob! These folks can come and learn (and get blessed), and then carry that back to their respective congregations to pass on the blessings.

    Thank you!

    Hey, does Canada count as ‘another country’ or were you thinking ‘another continent’? :)

    Thanks for the opportunity, it’s so humbling to see how God works. I’ll be praying for those who attend.

    Thank you all for organizing this conference. It’ll be my first conference and I’m really excited.
    I am as well one of the few coming from another country, from Zurich, Switzerland.

    Thanks a lot!

    It looks like you got some really creative and interesting entries from your readers! Congratulations to your winnersâ��I’m particularly interested in how Michael reacts to his first worship conference. It doesn’t look like I’ll be able to attend WorshipGod11, but I can’t wait to hear from attendees how it went!

    I’m looking for a place where folks might be planning to share a hotel room. My husband and I are going and bringing along our church drummer who is male, single and 20. We can’t afford to get him another hotel room. Is there anywhere where other dudes might be wanting to split the cost with him?

    Please add . . . I’m asking 2 other churches who I know will be there if they have any room-sharing options . . .

    I will be praying for the conference, that there be a life changing experience for all that attend. I will look to perhaps join you in 2012 as you give me more details. I am interested. God bless
