the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary


Ever wonder what’s at stake on Sunday morning?
The answer is simple: people’s view of God.

Churches need worship leaders who take their task seriously. Corporate worship is too important for worship leaders to take their cues from whatever is on the radio. The goal of this year’s Think: Worship conference is to confront that pattern and challenge worship leaders to think seriously about every aspect of worship. At this conference, pastors and worship leaders will have the opportunity to hear God’s Word from men who are passionate about glorifying God in corporate worship and about equipping both current leaders and the next generation to serve faithfully in the church.
