Worship Leader Roundtables

Would you like an opportunity to host an event aimed at connecting worship leaders in your area? This is a discussion-based networking and training event for helping worship leaders of all varieties establish relationships with other area worship ministry leaders, engage in conversation around topics related to best practices and worship in the local church, connect with the Worship and Music Office, and hopefully refresh a bit as we will spend time in worship and prayer together. Our goal is to meet in regional areas throughout the year.
