"I don't ever overblow or oversell conference experiences. Usually those mountain top experiences degrade a bit when you're back working in the valley. Gotta say—two days with the peeps at Granger Community Church…and I feel as rarin' to go as I've ever felt. Faith Community Church family—you ready for sparks to fly?"
The conference helped hundreds. It's a privilege to encourage church leaders from across America and I've posted a few of the pictures I took during the sessions that inspired so many.
There is a time to dance.
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully on the strings with a loud and joyful sound.
Praise him with drums and dancing.
Praise his name with dancing.
I heard a sound like massed choirs in Heaven singing,
The salvation and glory and power are God’s—
his judgments true, his judgments just.
Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.
2 Corinthians 10:15

So here’s what I want you to do. When you gather for worship, each one of you be prepared with something that will be useful for all: Sing a hymn, teach a lesson, tell a story, lead a prayer, provide an insight.
2 Chronicles 29:11
God has chosen you to take your place before him to serve in conducting and leading worship—this is your life work; make sure you do it and do it well.
1 Timothy 4:12
Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity. Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teaching.
