We have been created to create. God first revealed Himself as the Creator and has been inviting us to partner with Him ever since. The Closer  Worship conference will be a moment where we come together and explore, discover and activate the creative mediums and callings that God has placed in our lives. This conference is for everyone, not just worship leaders and band members.  Closer is for worshippers. Those sons and daughters that are ready to grow in their connection and purpose in God. Our hope is that, through this conference, that you do grow closer to our Father, the creator.

CREATIVE PROCESS
Too many ideas have been trapped in our minds and it is time to get those ideas out!  What does a creative process look like?  How do I deal with disappointments that come with progress?  We will deal with these thoughts and others as we discover the art of creating.
MUSICIANS CLASS

The Bible has so much to say about music and being a minstrel. In this course we want to look

steward this gift.

BLANK CANVAS

VOCAList CLASS
Our voice is one of the most important things that we possess.  In this course we will consider the power that comes from a voice that is committed to worshipping God.  We will also discover practical ways of developing  the gift that God has given us in our voices.
VIDEO AND GRAPHIC ARTS
Video and graphics are two of the most powerful tools that we have in the church today. In this course, we will look at what it takes to run a successful media team and learn practical ways to get the most out of the media that you present to your church every week.
SOUND OF HEAVEN
In this course, we will cover subjects that range from troubleshooting your system, learning how to mix for a live service and other parts of being a successful audio engineer and creating the sound of Heaven!
IDENTITY IN WORSHIP
How does that determine the significance and power of our worship? What is our role/function within worship? What is the purpose of our worship? Who/what are we to worship? What does our worship point towards? When we can answer these questions we will find our identity in worship.
THEOLOGY OF WORSHIP
What is God’s original design for worship? What is His heart for worship now? God is an intentional God, and He does everything with a purpose according to His heart. What we believe about worship and God ultimately enhances or stifles both our individual times of worship, and our corporate times of worship.
