We serve a God that creates. As people that have been made in His image, we are also given the opportunity to create. All throughout history we have seen God's people used as creative forces both inside the church, as well as outside of the church. God is reminding His people of the power of creativity, and how we can glorify Him in how and what we create.
We also believe in the power of the Holy Spirit. No matter what we have been uniquely called to do, we need the empowerment of the Spirit. As worship leaders, musicians, artists, those working in the entertainment industry, God wants to fill us with His Spirit as we create.
On June 24-25 we will gather and be reminded of the power of creativity, and also encounter God together. The weekend will include three main sessions with extended times of worship, teaching, and prayer. We will have seminars offered for worship leaders, artists, and musicians. Lastly, there will be creative venues for you to process, discuss, and express what God is doing in you throughout the weekend.
What would happen if a generation was awakened to the call to create, fueled by the power of the Holy Spirit? We are praying that this weekend will encourage and refresh all that come.
