Transform Sunday morning through this worship arts conference! Bring your team (program staff, worship associates, artists, musicians, and other interested people) to discover ways to enliven and deepen your congregation’s worship services. Based on presenter Marcia McFee’s book Think Like a Filmmaker
, this conference will help you layer visual, auditory, and experiential elements into a transformative worship experience. Lunch is included. (Teams of four or more get a free copy of the book.)
Dr. Marcia McFee is a professor, worship designer, author, preacher, and ritual artist. Drawing on a first career in professional dance and musical theater and equipped with a master's degree in theology and a Ph.D. in liturgical studies, she understands the role of any worship artist in the church as that of creating extraordinary portals through which communities journey with the Spirit. The task is at once deeply theological and wonderfully artistic. Connecting worship professionals and volunteers to their passion and depth of spiritual leadership is her aim in teaching and consulting, and she also works to equip them with skills to carry this out.
Dr. McFee has designed and led worship for regional, national, and international gatherings of several denominations for the last 20 years. She is the creator and visionary of the Worship Design Studio
, an online experience of coaching, education, inspiration, and a design application. Her latest book, Think Like a Filmmaker: Sensory-Rich Worship Design for Unforgettable Messages
, came out in June 2016.
There is ample free parking at the church.
