“In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…be perfectly united in mind and thought.” – 1 Corinthians 1:10
Our different expressions of worship are a celebration of Christ that brings about unity in the Spirit. Perfectly United is an opportunity for worship leaders and worshippers in the body of Christ to come together and engage with one another in corporate worship, workshops, and fellowship. Steve Swanson is our main speaker and worship leader throughout the conference.
In our morning breakout sessions, attendees will learn what it means to worship God in Spirit and truth, hear insights on the role of the body of Christ in worship and action through our increasingly divided times, understand ways to help others worship Jesus individually and corporately, and learn the scriptural and artistic fundamentals that worship art entails.
Our afternoon immersive workshops are longer times spent together working on a chosen expression of worship. Caleb Brundidge will teach on flagging and movement, Sean Regal will share his insights on the technical and spiritual aspects of sound engineering for the church, Steve Swanson will lead a rehearsal for worship leaders and team members for a choir to perform during New Life City’s saturday evening service, and the New Life City Art Guild will teach prophetic worship art. Read full details of our breakout sessions and workshops below.
Registration can be completed at the door on Saturday morning. There is no fee to attend the conference, but two workshops require materials fees.
