Our worship team has been attending Church Music Workshop North for the last few years, and now we wouldn’t miss it!
The unique hands-on format gives each team member –vocals, keyboard, guitar, drums, sound, etc. –the extremely valuable opportunity to practice what they are learning and to physically get their hands on an instrument or tech equipment. They get immediate takeaways where they can learn and try something on Saturday and literally put it into practice in church the next morning!
We’ve also found that the conference is a real bonding experience for our team. At lunch, we sit around the table and share what we’ve been learning so far and how God has been speaking to us through the various workshops. Those times of sharing have been powerful and brought our team and group much closer together. Plus, a little road trip is always fun, and you get to know people in a different way than you do at worship team practice!
Last year, one of our team members shared that at the conference, he sensed God’s call to worship ministry leadership. Today he is one of the key volunteer worship leaders in our church. The conference is helping people understand and step into their God-given calling, and that is pretty awesome too!
Simply put, Church Music Workshop North is northern California’s best and most practical training event for worship teams, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
