We had an absolute blast at the Worship Summit this weekend. I am still processing all that took place. Our team, North Side Worship, got to lead worship 4 times for a training event for worship leaders all over the state. I then taught 4 sessions (5 Things That Will Kill Your Worship Team, The Big Idea, Cookie Cutter Worship, and Guitar/Bass Master Class), and the rest of the team helped teach master classes in voice, keys, and drums.
Mark Powers, the director of worship for the South Carolina Baptist Convention, told me that people were going out of their way to share encouraging words about our group. I must say I have never been prouder to be on this team! I never doubted how they were going to bring it, but people’s comments to me reminded me how blessed we are as a church to have this crew.
These were some of the comments I received there, through email, etc.:
- “Your group sounded powerful on stage, but off-stage they were even more powerful. So relational and helpful.”
- “Enjoyed you and your praise team this weekend ministering to us at the White Oak Worship Summit. I did not get to attend any of the sessions your group did but others from my church and my daughter did. They were really over joyed with the passion that was demonstrated through your love for Christ and in with working with one another.”
- “I’ve never been led by such humble and passionate people.”
- “Can your group come to my church?”
- “Part of your team invited me to eat lunch with them and that meant so much to me.”
- “How did you assemble so many quality people?”
- And much more.
I am so very proud of them and honored to lead worship alongside them. Due to questions about the notes from the class, scheduling times for part of our group to come to other churches, or other great questions, I am listing a bunch of resources that hopefully should help you. I have pdf versions of the main 3 sessions and also our application packet. Also, I have some links of some upcoming events and way to get more resources from us on the regular. It’s all free – enjoy! Make it better, make it your own, Just equip your team!
