Bob, are you leading any worship conferences for worship pastor/leaders this year? If so, when and where please. thx Bruce
Bruce, thanks for asking. I’ll be doing a post shortly on conferences I’ll be leading/participating in this year in Frisco, TX (Sept. 15-17), Glen Mills, PA (Mar. 30-Apr. 1), and Louisville, KY (July 27-29).
Wondering if a date has been set for Worship God 2015 in Louisville? Enjoyed 2013 so much…
Thanks for asking, Dennis! July 29-Aug 1, 2015. Same location.
Can’t wait!! I am involved in a new church plant in Madison WI and hope to have my pastor and some of my praise team with me!!
When could we expect a bit more information concerning registration for Worship God July/Aug? Thanks so much and I hope to make this.
Jason, sorry about the delay. Hope to have the website up within a week or two. We’ve had issues with finalizing the participants, but we’re almost done! Starts Wednesday night, July 29, and ends at noon on Saturday, Aug 1. It will be at Highview Baptist Church in Louisville (East). Costs will be similar to 2 years ago. Around $120 for super early bird group rate.
How can I find the messages from the worship conference???? Is there a way to find them??
Brandon, all the messages from past conferences are posted here: http://www.worshipgod14.org/past-conferences/
Hi Mr Bob Kauflin,
I would just like to know whether you’ll be having any worship conferences/tours around Asia anytime soon? I’m from the Philippines but have settled in Singapore since. My church’s worship team’s very fond of the songs that you write in knowing that they’re doctrinally sound. Please do update if ever you’ll be around Asia and we will strive to get to your conferences. Thank you for inspiring many Christians to know Christ through your songs. God be praised.
Serving the King with you,
Zipporah Ann Tierra Nosa.
Zipporah, thanks so much for asking. At this point we don’t have plans to be in Asia. But if anything materializes, you will hear about it on this blog! By the way, what church are you part of in Singapore?
Do you have dates for Worship God West 2015 yet? Still in Santa Ana?
David, there won’t be a WorshipGod conference in this West next year. We’ll be in Louisville, Jul 29-Aug 1.
Sad. Hope you guys can come back to the west coast in the future!
Any plans for a WorshipGod West in 2016?
My eldest daughter and I were hoping to make the trip to CA this year, but looks like we may have to wait until next, huh?
Thanks for all you do, Bob
(Tucker says “Hi!”)
Hey, Paige! We’re not sure what 2016 holds, but hoping that it will be clearer as we get closer. We had fewer people than we expected at WorshipGod14, so we’re trying to figure out what the factors were. Please pray God will give us wisdom!
If this helps understand one factor, I attended Worship God West 2014 and can personally say that it was my first encounter with your conference and the larger ministry you’ve got going on. Though I had been familiar with the wonderfully theologically rich songs and resources, something I wished I had known about earlier was the conference!!! It was by far one of the best worship conferences I have ever been to, and hope that your return to Santa Ana could be welcomed with many others who have a new appreciation for your ministry and the encouragement your conference brought. I would go to Biola, APU, and CBU on your behalf and promote to the worship and music departments there if you’d like me to. I think it’s THAT important.
Justin, your comment is really encouraging. I think what we need is more “boots on the ground” promoting the conference. We’ll pray about this and see what develops. Thanks again for your encouragement!
Hi Bob. Do you have any plans for a workshop for video team volunteers? Camera operators, live video ministry in churches, etc?
Joe, Thanks for asking. Not at this point, but I’ll think more about it!
When does registration for WorshipGod East 2015 open?
Thanks for asking, Connie. We’re hoping for registration to start Feb. 1. Working out the final details now.
I see that you’re hoping to have registration open for WorshipGod East 2015 starting Feb 1st, but do you have a page for it yet? I’ve tried looking and can only find past conferences or the one in the UK. I went to the Life and Labor of the Worship Leader last year and would love to go to this one.
Matt, we’re working on getting a page up but want to finalize all the speakers. Thanks for wanting to come!
Any update on the Worship Conf in Louisville? Thanks!
Thanks for asking, Cody. The splash page is here: http://worshipgodconference.com/ We hope to start registration next week.
Hello! Will there be any upcoming worship conferences in the Southwest Region this year? Thanks!
Adrianna, thanks for asking! We’re planning on a mini-conference in Phoenix in early October. I’ll be sharing about it on this blog.
I will tell you what the factors were for WorshipGod West 2014 that contributed to the low attendance. Too many people didn’t know about it, and how awesome it was! I will tell my network about your conference if you plan one. That’s about 25 worship leaders!
Justin, thanks for your encouraging words!
Congratulations to Devon for his graduation this morning from SBTS! I was watching remotely because my daughter Amber also graduated (Master’s in Biblical Counseling) and heard his name and saw him walk across the stage (also saw you in the audience). Sad I wasn’t able to be there in person, but Amber and I will see you in a couple of months at WG15!
Thanks so much, Lindele! And congratulations on your daughter’s graduation!
Hello Bob – I do really hope that you do consider WorshipGod West next year. There is a great need out here in Southern California for what the conference offers (I attended both in 2013 and 2014 and it was phenomenal experience – 2013 was my 1st conference). I know we had a worship leadership conference at our church with Keith Getty and John Martin that had over 100 attendees from local churches and we had little to no advertising mostly word of mouth. I would say that one of the factors for the low attendance in 2014 may have been having it during prime VBS season (June/July). I know for my church many were not able to attend since they were serving in VBS and that may have been the case for others. In SoCal, God has blessed us with moderate weather, so maybe consider another time of year? In any case, I really do pray that Sovereign Grace Music might be able to serve us here again in the West. To the praise of His glory!
Thanks for your encouraging words, Rex! We’re praying what conferences we can do out West. Please join us in prayer!
Hi Bob! As a past attender of several WorshipGod conferences I am so appreciative of the hard work you, the Sovereign Grace Music team and many others put in to make it such an edifying time for all who attend. I was wondering if there might be any plans to have a shorter conference on the west coast similar to “The Gathering” which was held a few years back in Southern California? We have a number of people involved in the worship ministry at our church who could never make it to a full conference because of work constraints. Thank you again for your ministry, brother!
Thanks, Julian. Yes, we’re looking into that possibility. May not happen in 2016, but we’re in discussion.
Thanks for the reply Bob. We will be on the lookout for more info in the future.
Hi Bob, excited to see The Gathering coming to Orlando in February! Any more details to share?
Mkv09, thanks for noticing! We’ll be there Feb. 19-20, but I don’t have much more than that right now. When I do, it will be on the Events page.
Hi, do you have any plans in going back to the Philippines (Cebu)?
Mel, thanks for asking. We’re working on something, but details haven’t been nailed down. Please pray God gives us wisdom!
Do you have any info on WorshipGod2016? 2015 was amazing!
Thanks, Jesse! We’re holding off on a WorshipGod conference this year and are looking to 2017. Lord willing, Aug. 2-5. Thanks for asking!
Will there be plans of having a gathering here in the bay area? Would love to come in one of these conferences near our area.
Iggy, I assume you’re talking about the San Francisco Bay. If so, we’re trying to work on something for early 2017. Thanks for asking!
Thanks a lot! I will be praying for that.
Hi Bob, any plans on visiting Toronto, Canada?
Phoebe, thanks for asking! We were in Oakville and Toronto last October. No plans at the moment to return, but we’ll see what the Lord does!
Please could you contact me re. the event in Bristol innseptember. I am involved in leading the music ministry st our church and would love to attend a conference to help me with this.
Bethan, thanks for asking about the conference! You can find all the information at http://sguk.org/events/. Hope to see you there!
I was in attendance at the 2016 Together for the Gospel conference. I have been looking everywhere for a release date for the recording, but the best I can find is Fall 2016. Is there a set date for its release?
Thanks and Soli Deo Gloria,
Thanks, Jon! Oct. 21 is the release date.
Hello, are plans being made for the east coast Worship God conference in 2017? Looking forward to details and hopefully attending.
Hey, Stephen! We’re planning a regional WorshipGod conference Mar. 30-Apr. 1 at Covenant Fellowship in Glen Mills, PA. I’ll post information on Twitter, Facebook, and the blog as soon as the details are nailed down.
Let us know also if there are any plans for a West Coast conference in 2017.
If there is, you’ll hear about it here!
Is there an expected date for the 2017 events to be posted? My team is from Dothan, AL and would be looking for something that would be relatively close to our area. Thank you!
Josh, thanks for asking. The closest we’ll be is Louisville, KY, July 27-29. I wrote more here.
Dear Robert, God bless you. When you are going to have another WorshipGodWest in Los Ángeles CA? Like in 2014 in Santa Ana?
Alberto, we are hoping to have one out west in 2018. Watch this blog for info. Thanks!
I hope so, too. :)
When will the link to the WorshipGod Midwest Conference in Louisville be active? I’d love to go ahead and get registered! Blessings!
Thanks for asking! As soon as we have a website up, which should be in the next week or so.
Are you having another event in California?
We’re talking about possibly having one in 2018. No details yet. Thanks for asking!
Any plans for South Georgia in the near future?
The closest thing right now will be Frisco, TX, July 25-28 next year. Not very close, I know!
I am currently reading your book Worship Matters and I am learning a lot from it. Your honest struggles and realizations shows the mercy and grace of God at work in our lives, directing us to the right way. He is definitely a powerful yet personal God. We plan to use your book in our devotional time before practice and I am also recommending your book to our brethren in other churches hoping it would encourage them to train more not just to improve their skills but also in doctrine and theology since it is vital to the ministry. I am part of one of the reformed churches in the Philippines and we also wanted to attend conferences as well. Is there any worship conference that you may have in the Philippines or in Asia anytime soon that we can attend? Thank you.
April, thank you so much for your encouragement! We don’t have any conferences coming up in the Philippines at the moment. If we ever do, you will see it on this blog! God’s grace to you in Christ!
Thank you for your ministry at the Sing! conference. Our group was blessed to worship together with you and your family!
I saw some previous discussion here about conferences in California, maybe even the SF Bay Area! Any updates on future potential? Anything we could do to help make something like this possible?
Thanks for your encouragement about the conference, Julian. It was an honor to be there! We’re planning a conference in Frisco, TEXAS next year, July 25-28. Nothing yet for Cali. Thanks for asking!
Any hope for you to come to New England? I got excited when I read you had come to the “North East” until I realized you meant Pennsylvania. To me that’s mid East Coast. I heard you for the first time in TN, I don’t know anyone else from my area that went. I lead worship for our homegroup. Praying for you and Praising God for your ministry and Word centered lyrics. Blessings! Our group will be singing with you via You Tube tonight!
Annie, thanks for your encouragement and glad our songs are serving you! We don’t have anything currently planned for New England, but hope to get there again sometime in the future. If we do, I’ll post about it on my blog.
Hi, am so bless by your teaching, may our Father continue to equip you. It will be a great pleasure to have in Africa, Cameroon. Am a worshiper and worship leader. I may like to know more about worship and spiritual transformation. His blessings
Hi Bob, Hope you are well! Do you have a schedule for your conferences for 2018? I saw the mention of one in Texas in July….we are in North Carolina (SGC Apex) and were hoping to attend one next year! Thanks!
Thanks for asking, Amy! WorshipGod Frisco will be held July 25-28 in Frisco, TX. We’ll probably open the website after the new year.
I am absolutely loving your Worship Piano book (publ Hal Leonard). It is exactly what I have been looking for and is so helpful. I was wondering whether you are planning to do any conferences in the UK? Also, do you ever do masterclasses? If so, are they ever recorded? Thanks so much.
Mary, thanks so much! We hope to come over to the UK in Oct 2018. I’ll post about it here on Worship Matters. You can check out the series of posts starting here: https://worshipmatters.com/2011/11/30/the-piano-in-contemporary-worship-part-1/
Will there be any conferences in 2018 or 2019?
Thanks for asking, Joel! Yes, WorshipGod19 will be held July 31-Aug. 3 in Louisvile, KY. The Glorious Christ: Music is great. Jesus is greater.
What events for 2019? We would like to send our worship pastor to an event! We are in the Pacific northwest. Thank you,
Maurita, I would highly recommend WorshipGod19: https://worshipmatters.com/2019/03/25/ten-reasons-to-come-to-worshipgod19/
