A couple weekends ago I had the privilege of speaking at a conference. People have asked me to share things before, but not on this grand of scale. I was one of 40 breakout sessions for a 2 days conference on multicultural discipleship. I was asked to speak on worship in the multicultural environment. It seemed rather overwhelming at first, but once I started speaking it was really cool. I found that I have spent a lot of time learning things from experience that I didn’t think people cared to know from me. I was so overwhelmed by the response to my sessions. As a result I’ve been asked to share in depth with some other churches.
It sparked something in me that I forgot was there. A few years ago before we started working at churches, my wife and I were consulting with churches who were getting started with their worship teams. We spent a lot of time helping them prepare worship for their church as well as developing leaders to help them sustain their music ministries. It was a lot of fun and we loved sharing our knowledge with other churches. We haven’t done it in awhile because I’ve been working full time at church. I now have a few opportunities to do that again and am excited about what the future holds. It’s funny how things come full circle, and how the Lord prepares you for things.
