Worship God 2008 Conference: Rediscovering the Psalms

Registration is now open for this year’s Sovereign Grace worship conference, titled WorshipGod08: Rediscovering the Psalms. To be held July 30–August 2 in Gaithersburg, Maryland, the conference will focus on how the ancient Psalms can transform our worship today.

WorshipGod08 is for anyone who wants to grow in understanding and leading biblical worship. Bob Kauflin, the director of worship development, summarizes it this way:

Worship leaders and planners are always on the lookout for ways to serve their churches more effectively. Thank God, we have an increasing number of tools, websites, and books we can turn to. But the most important teaching on modern worship wasn’t written in our lifetime. Thousands of years ago, God gave us the Psalms to inform, inspire, and direct our worship. Every generation has the opportunity to rediscover what he’s said.

Speakers will include Bob Kauflin, Thabiti Anyabwile, Mark Dever, and David Powlison. In addition to the general sessions, each attendee can choose up to five practical seminars on topics such as songwriting, voice and instrumental instruction, pastoral leadership, praying the Psalms, family worship, planning, and creative media.

Register by March 31 to receive the lowest rates. (You can still register until July 9, but prices will be higher.) To register, choose seminars, find travel information, and more, visit
