Blended Worship Conference?

September 4, 2007 — 13 Comments

There is a little buzz in the CECWorship camp and I wanted to pose this question to everybody who reads this. In the CEC (my denomination) we are working on a worship conference for next year. One idea is to make it similar to Integrity with the way the sponsor seminars4worship. This would make the conference not just for one denomination but open to all.
It would be a blended worship conference. Seminars would include: guitar, bass, vocals, keys, drums, misc instruments, digital techniques, Innovative slide/presentation design, Web/blog presence, blending hymns with modern, hymns, communion, liturgy, prayers, creeds, and spoken word, choirs, how to have worship without a band, worship flow, sensitivity to the spirit, song writing, and much much more.

Ok so the questions of the day.

Would you go to a Blended Worship Conference in the Northeast in 2008 sposored by the CEC and CECWorship?

What would you like to see at a conference like that?

How does the Fall of 2008 sound?

Out of Town

June 26, 2007 — 3 Comments

I will be out of town in Lake George, NY from Tues evening to Saturday Evening. I don’t know if there is WiFi at the place I’m going to, but if there is expect updates. I am going for a little vacation and to co-lead worship at a northeast Convocation (Conference)  for all the churches  in the CEC in  the north. I am pretty reved up. It should be a great time of worship, fellowship, and mini golf.
