Coming to Seattle and LA

I’m looking forward to spending the next two weekends in the Western part of our country as we offer The Leaders Table and The Green Room in Seattle, February 1 and 2, and in Los Angeles, February 8 and 9. The Friday event, The Leaders Table, for arts and worship pastors and leaders will be an intimate, interactive day of coaching where we can stretch one another’s leadership skills and talk about the hard stuff arts leaders face in ministry. I always look forward to those days, because inevitably I learn something new and I leave inspired myself. It’s so important for us to know we are not alone in ministry, and to figure out how we can more effectively lead artists, guide the creative process, work with our senior pastors, and manage our own lives in a healthy way.

Then on the Saturday Green Room events, we’ll include volunteer and staff church artists from many churches for a day designed to ground us in vision and core values for arts teams. Together we will explore why creativity, authenticity, relevance, and excellence matter so much in what we prepare for Sunday mornings. I will teach using some video highlight moments from Willow. The host churches – Timberlake Christian Fellowship in Seattle, and ROCKHARBOR in Costa Mesa – will lead us in a time of worship. Whenever church artists can be led by others and not have to concern themselves with any of the details, it’s truly a gift!

Outside of time with my family, there are few things I enjoy more than the privilege of spending a day with church arts leaders and their teams. It’s not too late for anyone to register, for either the Friday or Saturday event, or both. Just go to the website at: www.willowcreek.org/worshiparts . I’d love to meet you in Seattle or Los Angeles!

that's one of my favorite parts of attending a conference at willow, is the ability to be a part of great corporate worship and not have to be concerned with the details, it really feels like I'm freed up to relax and worship.

Thanks for coming to Seattle, Nancy. It was a JOY to hear from you, to worship together and, OH such joy watching Scribble 4.1!

Blessings!
