All pastors, laity, youth, worship leaders, and worship committee members are invited to attend this workshop, hosted by the Dakotas Conference. It is designed for every size church and encompasses traditional as well as modern worship experiences. The presenter will be Rev. Laura Bartlett of the Oregon-Idaho Conference (click here for her resume). Laura was the designer of worship at the 2016 General Conference.

This daylong experience is for people who are passionate about worship…and for people who long for worship to be passion-filled! The event will include participatory worship, as well as plenty of opportunities to dig into both the theology and the practicality of designing creative worship, no matter what style a congregation prefers.

Attendees will learn about and practice team-based worship planning and examine how music, visuals, movement, and words can be layered to create deeper meaning and to provide a variety of portals through which diverse congregation members can feel connected. This is a day for getting past perceived obstacles (it’s not about style or size!) and claiming the creativity and resources that are gifts from God!
