To be an engaging worship leader requires a special soul, one that, as Sovereign Grace Churches’ Bob Kaufin beautifully articulates, “magnifies the greatness of God in Jesus Christ [ ... ] by skillfully combining God's Word with music [ to ] cherish God's presence and to live for God's glory.”

It’s clear that this is no easy task. Many worship leaders find great strength in attending worship conferences to rejuvenate themselves as they continue to motivate the gathered church to sing God’s praise. Below is a chronological list of our top 4 worship conferences for 2017.
