DOXOLOGY & THEOLOGY CONFERENCE:
THE WORD OF GOD IN WORSHIP
The worship of God should be built upon, shaped by, and saturated with scripture. To this end, we will be hosting the first Doxology & Theology worship conference on November 1-3, 2012 at Providence Church in Frisco, TX. Our emphasis will be “The Word of God in Worship”
Our attendance limit is 400 for this initial conference. We are intentionally keeping it small for the sake of building relationships and maximizing our time together. Spaces are filling up quickly, so register soon!
This conference will be specifically geared for worship leaders who have a desire to more fully understand the role and function of scripture in worship through a biblical lens. This would also be a great conference to bring your entire worship team.
We will have a special track for worship leaders of church plants through breakout sessions, and panel discussions with worship leaders who have planted churches.
We also encourage you to bring your pastor and your entire worship ministry to come and learn together to help maximize the impact of the conference.

At the heart of Papa’s ministry is a vision to see the nations worship Jesus; and to that end, Matt radically leverages his life, his ministry, and his music.

Stephen Miller is a pastor and artist who strives to enlarge people’s view of God with the truth of Scripture and artfully give a vocabulary and vehicle to express thankfulness and praise to Him. He serves as worship leader alongside pastor Darrin Patrick at The Journey St Louis and travels with his band to lead worship all over the world. Believing that songs alone are insufficient to express our love for God, and are in fact our smallest expression of worship, Stephen is adamant that worship is a lifestyle expressed through mercy, justice and compassion. He is a passionate advocate for orphans, and serves as a Compassion International artist, who he has partnered with for the past 4 years to help rescue children out of poverty in Jesus name.
