In March of 2011 Bifrost Arts will be presenting a conference based on curriculum entitled "Liturgy, Music, & Space". The lineup of speakers and leaders looks to be incredible. I'm really excited about this. Here's what they say on their website:
Each week, we tell our congregations a story with how we use liturgy, how we use music, and how we use space in worship. Bifrost Arts has developed a small group and Sunday School curriculum entitled "Liturgy, Music, & Space" to help churches walk through a coherent, biblical view of how these elements of worship are forming us.
Join us from March 29-31 as we present this curriculum at a conference with lectures, workshops, and times of worship in St. Louis, Missouri with:
Betsy Steele Halstead
& The Welcome Wagon.
Conference fee is $150. Discounts are available for students and church employees from small congregations.
So many reasons to be excited about this. Bryan Chapell wrote the amazing book "Christ Centered Worship" (which you can find a link to at the bottom right of the blog). The book has virtually revolutionized the way I approach the construction of a worship service. Kevin Twit is the founder of Indelible Grace. If you are a reader of my blog then you will know the major respect I have for Indelible Grace. We regularly use their hymns in our worship. Isaac Wardell is the masterful Creative Director of Bifrost Arts. I had the privilege to be led in worship by Isaac at the Crowder's Fantastical Conference. Wardell is the real deal. The Welcome Wagon were also at Crowder's conference. I even got to chat for a few minutes in the hotel lobby. They are amazing, humble, and authentic folks who create great art that accentuates the gospel.
I am going to try to make every effort to be there. It will be difficult since the conference is in the middle of the week but this is just too good to pass up!
