Creative Worship Workshops

Location: Lake Poinsett Retreat Center
Date: February 10 - Feb 11, 2020

We live in a culture obsessed with screens.  From the smartphones and tablet devices we carry everywhere we go, to the large screens in our living rooms; the world around us has shifted to a communication form that the church is still struggling to fully understand.  Regardless of worship style, it's imperative that the church learn to embrace and master the use of image and creativity in the way we communicate the gospel in worship.

Join worship specialist, author and worship coach Jason Moore for one of the workshops designed for churches of all sizes, budgets and means.  Whether your church has screens in worship, you are thinking about it, or have decided against them, this seminar has something for you and your church.

Creating a Culture of Creativity in Worship - in the church, we may have new media, but we have old mindsets.  We are stuck in a world of text.  Discovering the power and potential of story and metaphor, will move us toward a more effective form of communication for our present culture.  In this session, learn how to engage our culture through metaphor, story, experience, and participation.

Developing and Perfecting a Collaborative Worship Design Team - Many have attempted to design worship with a team of people only to discover that it is difficult to form a team that actually works.  Any number of obstacles often befall teams of sincere, hard working people.  Is it possible to design worship with a team that takes flight?  In this session, learn who's on your team, and how to collaborate with them through an intentional process.

Workshop - Tuesday, February 11, 2020
