"PILLOW TALK" FOR WORSHIP MINSTRY COUPLES
All Christian ministry is tough work, but couples who share a calling to worship ministry face some unique challenges as well as unique joys. How do we handle disagreements? How do we deal with children and Sunday morning dynamics? How do we encourage and uplift one another rather than fuel frustrations? Let’s get together and talk about how we navigate these issues in ways that respect and honor one another and set an example for the church.

SONGWRITING: WRITING FOR YOUR CHURCH
In this breakout session, we’ll discuss how to write relevant songs that minister and speak to your local Body. The best and the greatest songs start small: inside the local Church context. Learn how to start with what you know: Our God, His Word, His people, their personal situations, what the Lord is speaking to your local congregation and to your city. We’ll discuss songwriting fundamentals, the right style, structure, and approach for your people, and co-writing with your team for your church.

Inductive worship leading: inviting people into their own worship. How do we lead people into practicing worship on a daily basis? / Outside of the 80-minute gathering.
