This week I had the opportunity to attend the National Worship Leader Conference. It was held in Leawood, Kansas at Church of the Resurrection so was just a hop, skip, and a jump away for me. It was pretty incredible to get so many leaders (estimated 1,600) in the worship music area across the nation together. There were concerts by musicians such as David Crowder Band, Mac Powell, Laura Story, Aaron Shust, Paul Baloche, Matt Maher, Jeremy Riddle, and Christy Nockels. During the day there were also seminars touching on a variety of topics relevant to worship leaders. The days were long but it was very cool to spend time with so many worship leaders and the times of worship were amazing. The audience was ready to be set aflame with hearts in worship to God.
