2013 S.E.E.D. Conference: Biblical Worship
Heather Hills Baptist Church, Indianapolis, Ind., pastored by Brian McCrorie, is hosting the 2013 S.E.E.D. Conference (Spiritual Enrichment and Education), March 17–19, which will center on the topic of Biblical worship. The conference overview states, “At Heather Hills, one of our core values is: we are passionate about the sincere, biblical worship of God. But what does that truly look like in the church? Doesn’t worship just mean the music part of the service? What about the songs I don’t like? Does the Bible actually address these subjects? Why do ‘Worship Wars’ exist in the church? And what about when I’m alone in private worship? What place does the scripture and prayer have in worship?  What about worship postures? How do I worship a God I cannot see? These are the questions we are looking to answer by digging deeply into the soil of God’s Word at the 2013 SEED Conference. We hope you can join us!”

March 18 is Church Leadership Day at S.E.E.D. Conference—a day for pastors, interns, staff, and ministry leaders to dig deeply into the Word to learn truths about Biblical worship that can impact their churches. Register here.

Northridge Church, Rochester, N.Y., invites pastors, church leaders, staff, and key volunteers who long to obey the Great Commission both effectively and Biblically to attend the church’s 16:5 Conference, March 18 and 19. As Pastor David Whiting explains, “Being both biblically faithful and culturally relevant is a difficult tightrope to walk. At 16:5 we will learn to walk this tightrope together through main sessions, breakouts, fellowship and worship. We would love to have you join us and others who long to be both faithful and relevant in sharing the gospel with the people in our culture.”
