The Lineup at this Year's National Worship Leader Conferences

So I'm pretty thrilled to see this year's lineup at the NWLC regional conferences happening this year in Virginia (coming up fast!) and Kansas City. For instance, Lester Ruth, who (along with Swee Hong Lim) just published a NECESSARY brief history of contemporary worship will be speaking. Lester is a scholar with a pastor's heart and a churchman's spirit. I trust and believe in this guy. And, though I don't know her personally, I would especially want to hear what Cheryl Wilson-Bridges has to say. Her books look worth a read!

I've come to admire and respect the worship leadership and thoughtfulness behind the songwriting of many of the music leaders that will be there--Paul Baloche, Evan Wickham, and Jesse Reeves.

Perhaps most importantly, though, is the fact that the theme is on "Leading in Prayer," zeroing in on what it means for worship leaders to think of themselves as prayer leaders. I have a few thoughts on that subject, myself, and I'm therefore thrilled to see a conference pick it up as its guiding light.

I don't think you'll be disappointed if you choose to go solo or take your team out to bask in the singing and teaching that these conferences will offer this year. Go register!
