This is our theme for this year’s conference. When we think of worship, what comes first to mind? Perhaps for most, we think of singing and music in church. While this is one expression of worship, there are many more! Worship is not something we do once or twice a week but it is our daily, continual response to God, for who He is and what He does. Worship springs forth from our knowledge of God, through His revealing Himself to us, most clearly in Jesus Christ and in the Bible.

Worship takes place in our personal lives, in our families, in our churches and small groups, in missions and in all cultures. Biblical worship according to God’s will and Word is the right Worship of God and how we Enjoy Him forever.

Join us this November 8-10 in Bangkok, Thailand as we delve into these topics and more. Our speaker this year is Ron Man, the Director of Worship Resources International. We will be are encouraged and edified together to Worship God and hope to see you there!

The conference will be held at Sena Place Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand.

Plenary Sessions and Workshops

Plenary Sessions, led by Ron Man director of Worship Resources International.

  1. The Gospel: A Call to Worship
    – Worship is a subject of great interest and often controversy in our times. (Hence the conference theme.) Hence the importance of going to the Scriptures for guidance. In this session we will explore how worship is a central unifying theme in all human, biblical and redemptive history.
    .
  2. Jesus, Our True Worship Leader
    – We need to repent of trying to worship in our own strength. Jesus is our one way to the Father: true worship is in, through, with and even by Him.
    .
  3. The Bridge: Worship and Culture
    – How can we be both biblically faithful and culturally relevant in our worship? We need to rigorously distinguish between the Bible actually commands, and what it leaves open for cultural adaptation.
    .
  4. Plenary Session 4: Panel Discussion and Q&A with session and workshop speakers

 

Workshops

  1. Worship and the Church: What the Bible Says about Corporate Worship. (Ron Man)
    – Surprisingly, the New Testament gives very little in the way of actual directives for our worship services. But there are certainly principles to guide us in our decisions about worship practices.
    .
  2. Worship and the Family: What the Bible Says about Leading Our Families in Worship. (Sherman Malachi)
    – The Lord’s prayer (aka “the Disciple’s Prayer) has been memorized by many Christians all over the world. It has been chanted and repeated. But what is the true meaning behind it? Join us as we dive into the text to see what Jesus demands of our mindsets and the implications towards worshiping as a family unit.
    .
  3. Worship and the Called: What the Bible Says about Our Spiritual Disciplines. (Jon Hoglund)
    – Spiritual disciplines are God’s initiative and they take place as part of the church’s life. Spiritual disciplines don’t come first before our corporate worship with God’s people. Rather, spiritual disciplines are our response to what we have already seen and heard in corporate worship.
    .
  4. Inclusive Worship: For all the church (Timothy Quek)
    – We know that the whole church is called to worship. In practice, however, groups of people are sometimes overlooked. How can we make worship inclusive for both young and old, rich and poor? What about gender imbalance and people who use a different language?
    .
  5. Worship and the Pastor: The importance of worship in pastoral education and pastoral ministry. (Ron Man)
    – In many churches today, pastors have “outsourced” worship leadership to church musicians and others. But there is a crucial role for the pastor to play in giving guidance to the church’s worship.

      Dear Naveen Kumar, we thank you for your interest in the conference. However, as we are all volunteers, we are unable to pay for your registration and accommodation fees at this point in time. While we hope that you’ll still be able to come to the conference, the audio recordings would also be made available online after the event so that those who did not attend can still benefit from it. Thanks again and God bless!
