Christ has risen, He has risen indeed!
If this video brings a smile to your face, please SHARE with others. I believe we could all use encouragement this Easter Sunday!
Thank you everyone who made our virtual choir come to life as we celebrate Easter this year in an unconventional way. The truth of Jesus' resurrection still remains the same -- He has risen and therefore we will always have hope!
"So they asked Jesus, 'Do you hear what they are saying?' 'Indeed I do,' answered Jesus. 'Haven't you ever read this scripture? '"You have trained children and babies to offer perfect praise.'" (Matt. 21:16)

GETTY WORSHIP CONFERENCE, NASHVILLE
Although I truly love every aspect of my music-filled week, every Sunday I have the opportunity to lead the body of Christ in worship. There’s nothing else that brings me greater joy than when I have opportunities that directly intertwine faith and music. Growing up within church, worship is also a large part of my musical “roots” -- church was the place I learned how to read music, sing with a choir, play the piano in front of a congregation, accompany instrumentalists and vocalists, and more.
Recently Rachel and I returned from the beautiful Gaylord Convention Center in Nashville, TN, where we attended “Sing!” Conference for Pastors, Leaders, and Musicians on Encouraging and Reforming Congregational Worship.
I have attended this conference for the past three years and each year I have grown in both my faith and musicality. It’s hard to put an experience into words, however, I want to share some of the opportunities this unique conference provides and hope you too may attend in the future!
Each year I eagerly look forward to worshipping with other believers. I have always enjoyed the intimacy of being a part of a small congregation, however, it simply feels like a glorious preview of Heaven to sing alongside 10,000 attendees from more than 50 countries. It is also an opportunity for worship leaders, like myself, to be fully present without thinking about responsibilities that accompany typical Sunday mornings...
