Our very first Next Level Worship Conference in Deridder, LA went incredibly well! We had close to 120 people who attended, representing several local area churches. We received the letter below from Frank Nihart, who is the worship pastor who hosted our first Next Level Worship Conference. It is clear from this letter that he was very satisfied with the results of the conference.
Let me say again how well our people and the surrounding area churches responded to the Next Level Worship Conference. To many, it was a day of new insight on the subject of worship and praise. It is my opinion that most Christians don’t realize how dominant and daily worship should be in our lives. Similarly, choir members, praise team members, pastors and even worship leaders could all benefit from your teaching about being “ministers ‘through’ music.”
The large group worship/teaching times you led were, to quote one attendee: “able to meet all our needs.” They went on to say they were inspired to serve more readily and better recognized their calling as a worship leader.
The small group sessions were effective to the point that great teaching was done in a compacted schedule. These sessions informed the attendees and whetted their appetites to pursue greater skill and knowledge in the various subject/ministry areas.
Your preparation was truly professional. You were keenly concerned about relating the truths of the scripture to “our” conferees. Your leadership and conscientiousness about “timing” and schedule were much appreciated.
May God bless you in your commitment to serve Him.
