We serve in a context. The context of relationships. These relationships shape our culture of worship. In every direction, the health of these relationships determines the health of our culture of worship. Think about your relationship with God, yourself, your church leadership, your worship team, and your congregation. We’ll learn how to move forward in each of these key relationships and develop a strong culture of worship.

Worship Vs Preaching Debate
God's word never returns void, but we were created to worship. We will worship God forever, but the word of God is eternal. Pastors and musicians have been debating for centuries…which is more important, the worship or preaching aspects of the gathering of God's people? Join Worship Pastor Brett Lovern and Teaching Pastor Jamie Mitchell as they engage in a lively debate over what's really important.
Sound Tech Demo with a Live Band
Join Tony Guyer and Grandview UMC's band as they give a live demonstration. You'll have time to ask your questions as you learn techniques of mixing a band in a live room. The space is set up well for attendees to stand behind the digital sound board (a Yamaha M7CL) so you'll be able to see, hear, and learn how to mix more effectively. Turn down the rock star please…
Bass and Drums
Join instructors as they discuss team dynamics and holding the groove with their instruments and with their co-band members.
Join Rick Rowe from Hopewell Christian Fellowship for a discussion on the many facets of modern worship keyboarding in today's churches. We'll talk about leading with keys, creating flow with patches, personal monitoring for improved musicianship and much more!
As a BONUS, bring your tech team to the Pre-Event Sound Check Training.
Join Tony Guyer and Grandview UMC's band for the pre-event walk through of a sound check before the group worship time. The space is set up well for attendees to stand behind the digital sound board (a Yamaha M7CL) so you'll be able to see, hear, and learn how to run a great sound check.
This event is designed for your WHOLE worship ministry! Bring them all and stay for lunch together.
When & Where
The Worship Link
The Worship Link is a group of interdenominational worship leaders based out of south/central/eastern Pennsylvania. We exist to connect with area worship leaders on multiple levels; to equip them and their worship department with both spiritual and technical training, to offer assistance with instrument players between churches when they have an area of need, and to break down the walls of competition often felt between churches.
