I’m really looking forward to our Worship Workshop this weekend. I’m especially excited about two things. First is our guest speaker, Dr. Bruce Leafblad. I snuck a peak at his notes and it made me anticipate it all the more. Bruce has spent his lifetime as a worship leader, worship professor, but most importantly, worshiper of the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. What we will receive is the wisdom and learning of a man who has devoted his life to loving the Lord with all his heart, soul, mind and strength. We are in store for a great time of centering in on what is most important as worshipers and worship leaders to our church family. Bruce is also a friend of our family through friendship with his daughter, Stefani who married my best friend, Dave. I’ve wanted to get him in to speak to us for some time now, so it’s about time!
The second source of my excitement is our partnership with the Packinghouse Church here in Redlands. Their worship team, led by Music Director, Kim Hutchcroft, worship leader, Robert Easely, and soundtech, Chris Hamilton will lead us in a time of worship singing. All of them will then lead us in breakout sessions following the opening general session. By the way, the opening session is a worship service with a sermon on the topic of worship. Anyone is invited to join us for this time of worship from 8:30 – 9:45 on Saturday morning.
See you there!
