The sixth annual NOLA United Worship Conference, sponsored by New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, is Sept. 26. The 2015 event will be held on the NOBTS campus in Sellers Recital Hall from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. NOLA United Worship is a day of worship focused on worship band leadership, instrument training, theological training in worship, and discipleship and worship equipping. This year’s theme is Missions and Worship. Our guest speakers will include Mark Powers and Patrick Woolsey.* Mark Powers is the Worship Facilitator for the South Carolina Baptist Convention and has recently written a book titled, Worship that Moves Us to Discipleship and Missions. Powers will share insights on this important topic through a keynote address Saturday morning and breakout session. Woolsey is an IMB missionary and an expert in exegeting a culture for the purpose of sharing the Gospel. Specifically, Woolsey has rich experiences in using art forms as connection points for Kingdom work. For worship pastors of all types, we will feature Tim Johnson, worship pastor at First Baptist Church, New Orleans. Johnson has a rich background in worship band leadership, having been featured at numerous youth and college camps and disciple-now weekends. Additionally, Johnson has broadened his ministry experience in recent years becoming the worship pastor to multiple generations at First Baptist, New Orleans. The event will cost $25 (lunch is optional and will be made available at conference/several lunch options are also available close to the campus). If a church or group brings five or more people, the cost is reduced to $20. To register your group and pay online, click here.
