The introduction of the singing of hymns into English Nonconformist churches (churches outside of the Anglican state church) in the 1690s was one of the most important worship innovations since the Reformation. Not surprisingly, it engendered "worship wars," in which there was more heat than light at times. This workshop will examine the take-away lessons we can learn from this important worship controversy for our own troubled times.
The question is not “Are you a worshiper?” but rather “What kind of a worshiper are you?” In True Worshipers, Bob Kauflin, a seasoned pastor and musician, opens our eyes to the massive significance of being the type of worshiper God is seeking. Rooted in the gospel of grace and filled with practical application, this book aims to connect Sunday morning to the rest of your life—helping you fulfill your calling to be a true worshiper each and every day.…

God’s Word tells us that in Jesus Christ “there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.” (Colossians 3:11) Knowing that Jesus died to make us one and living in the good of that reality are two different things. In this breakout, Shai Linne will talk about right and wrong ways to pursue the unity that only the gospel of Jesus Christ has made possible.

Is it because you don't have faith, or enough faith? In this session you'll see from Scripture that the proof of faith isn't always seen in the answers you expect from prayer or in the evident blessing of God. God has something better for us - himself.

Matt Mason | WorshipGod 2009: From Generation to Generation
Whatever role you play in the public worship ministry of your church, there are times when you don’t “feel” like standing up in front of a congregation and leading them in worship. Matt Mason knows what that’s like, as he was a worship pastor in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. He’ll share from his own life, and more importantly from the Word of God, how we can find faith in the midst of adversity to praise God.
