NASHVILLE, TENN. (SEPTEMBER 01, 2016) Essential Worship will be hosting #EWCON, a conference for worship leaders, pastors and creatives this month in Chicago. The two-day conference is geared to inspire and refresh those in ministry. #EWCON will take place at the historic Cathedral (935 North Dearborn Street) in Chicago on September 29-30. Registration is open now here.
Essential Worship developed #EWCON with the mission of serving worship leaders and church leadership by allowing them a time to pause. Ministry is hard. It’s easy to become stagnant and forget to dream. But God doesn’t want us to live there. Essential Worship believes that God is calling us to greater things for ourselves, our churches, and the people we serve.
“We really want worship leaders to move beyond a place of creating set lists, rehearsing teams, and simply leading songs and begin dreaming about what they do, and how it can change the course of their church body and their community,” shares Essential Woship’s Josh Pauley. “It really becomes less about creating moments and more about crafting cultures. When we can do that we find that we are beginning to step into the greater story that God has for us all.”
Special guests include pastors, worship leaders and thought-leaders in the Church: Erwin Raphael McManus, Vertical Church Band, Levi Lusko, Amanda Cook, Jason Ingram, James MacDonald, Steven Bush, Mosaic MSC, One Sonic Society, Luke MacDonald, Aaron Ivey, Mia Fieldes, Stephen McWhirter, Will Doggett, and Daniel C. White.
For those who can’t attend the entire conference, Essential Worship is now offering single session tickets available for purchase here.
Essential Worship was born out of the passion to serve worship leaders and their churches with a versatile offering of tools and resources that make discovering and adopting new songs into worship sets as easy as possible. Essential Worship is home to some of today’s most sung writers, worship leaders and churches including Jason Ingram, Matt Maher, Vertical Church Band, Elevation Worship, One Sonic Society, Mia Fieldes, Paul Mabury, Mosaic MSC, & Iron Bell Music, among many others. In addition to providing song resources, Essential Worship also acts as the record label for worship artists Vertical Church Band, One Sonic Society, Mosaic MSC and Iron Bell Music.
