Worshipers, Leaders, and Trainers,

journey togetherHeading to Georgia this Week: I am about to travel to Atlanta area (Marieta, GA) to help with some training at a regional conference there. Over a 100 worship leaders, musicians and others will gather and grow through various engagement of teaching, modeling and skills. This is going to be a great time, good event. If you are interested in learning more about it, click here for more info on "Is God Listening?" Conference. Why do I keep going to events, sometimes teaching, sometimes learning? Answer: because none of us can make a worthwile journey alone. Conferences, training, and learning are ways we can join together and take the journey together. One of my good friends who will be joining us at the conference is Dan Wilt. You have probably heard his name before. He's a well known teacher, leader and author, who's trained literally thousands of people around the globe in various areas of worship, theology and the creative arts and hearts of leadership and pastoral teams.

Do we have to travel for great training? Dan and I have been talking for years about the fact that while conferences are wonderful, accessibility is not always possible. Travel, costs, timing, schedule, and a myriad of other barriers make it so that most churches simply can't afford to send all the leaders they would like to a world class training event. Further, after all the effort of a 2-3 day training event, how do you truly measure effectiveness? Dan is not a fly-by-night guy. He has served as a worship leader, senior pastor and a university professor. He has taken literally decades of his life to try to help equip the Body of Christ to actually effectively grow through excellent training.

Check This Out: So what does Dan do now to help train people? The answer: the world's first ultimate conference in a cloud - If I tried to explain everything Dan has done, this email would be way too long. But let me give you a few short points.

Before you think I am making some paid endorsement, I am not. Dan isn't paying me to send this email, no one is. I am talking about Dan and because it is absolutely the best thing I have ever been involved in as a learner. Ya, that's right- I am an alumn of I have taken several courses including Essentials Red, Green, Blue and Songwriting, as well as a full 2 week intensive. Every course was a transforming experience and has actually helped me long term. Seriously, if you have any doubt about it, feel free to email me personally at "dwn @" (remove the spaces). I will answer you back personally on any question you might have. I believe that strongly in what Dan is doing.

Below is some details about that could be helpful in understanding what it is. Dan has generously put together an additional free download Video Training Night for all of us on Digital Worship News, as a welcome to all of us from
