4 Reasons NWLC Is the Right Worship Conference for You

If you’re looking for powerful content that will deeply impact your worship ministry, highly applicable workshops that will set you up for success
right away, and to engage in times of prayer and worship with authentic and intentional leaders, then NWLC is for you.

Teach Us To Pray

The picture of the folk-band disciples was an original watercolor created for Chuck Fromm by celebrated illustration artist Rick Griffin. The intention was to display the disciples as part of the Jesus Movement Revival that spawned a new generation of “hymnists,” and demonstrate the truth that Jesus spoke in the vernacular of the people whom he came to serve. Here it is repurposed to be the cry of the unnamed disciple who asked Jesus to “teach us to pray” (Lk 11). The image of the 12, married to the biblical request, invokes the connectedness between prayer and the music we offer in our services of worship. We are asking God to teach us to use our skill, our plans, our talents as instruments of prayer.

It is the same lesson we are asking God to teach us here at Worship Leader this year in the pages of the magazine and as the theme for the National Worship Leader Conference. We invite you to join us in this contemplation in 2016.

What People Are Saying

The wealth of information and encouragement that I received from the NWLC is priceless. I’ve already been able to use so many of the new ideas that I learned during the conference within my church worship services; and the conference was only a few weeks ago. I look forward to growing even more next year…I’ve already arranged to take my whole team with me! – Jennifer Lane First Baptist Church Mountain Home, AR

The NWLC is a great place to surround yourself with people who share the same passion in ministry as yourself. Every year I have been I have been encouraged, challenged, and equipped to continue the work the Lord has called me to do. The conference offers something for everyone, so bring your team!

As a first time attender, I was amazed at the effective blending of latest in music and technology as well as meaningful reflection on the role of the worship leader and the place of music and technology in a worship service. The pastoral leadership set the tone for a joyful celebration, while the speakers and musicians demonstrated that worship is truly a verb, providing content and context to take back to my congregation.


A refreshing, inspiring, rejuvenating time filled with amazing worship, helpful workshops, fellowship, and many personal God moments that often elude the worship leader who is so focused on creating those for others. An absolute must for all worship leaders to stay fresh and excited in their ministry!
