A weekend focused on worshiping and praising God in song.
The motivation for 1000 Voices began as a regional singing focussed around a 4 hour themed service, and improving congregational singing. It has grown into a multi-day national conference.
The focal point and driving force behind 1000 Voices has always been and always will be a focused a cappella singing on Saturday afternoon. Over the past few years additional events have been added such as FREE training and educational workshops, Children’s Voices, vendor and sponsor opportunities, and various meet and greet opportunities.
There are many talented musicians in the world today and some beautiful Christian music. However, most of us do not have the talent to cut a CD or sing in a small group. 1000 Voices is an opportunity to join hundreds of Christians from around the country for an afternoon of praise and worship where you are participating in a 4 part harmony a cappella chorus.
“Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.” (Psalm 95:1)
The Psalms recognize the importance of expressing our reverence for God’s power, glory, mercy and love through song. This is the foundation for 1000 Voices. The highlight of the weekend is a three-hour praise and worship service that will include prayers, scripture readings, and a lot of singing. On Friday night and Saturday morning, free workshops will be offered on new praise and worship songs, new children’s spiritual songs, and basic song leading techniques.
Don’t know how to read music? Not sure if you are a Soprano or a Bass? You don’t need to be a great singer to praise God, singing and making melody in your heart. The Lord encourages us to admonish, uplift and teach one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. I encourage you to join us regardless of the level of your singing abilities. The weekend will provide many benefits including:
- A powerful event that will touch you and your family
- Share the story of the Bible with your family, friends and neighbors
- A positive message in a time of degrading morals and personal disappointments
- Learn new praise & worship songs
- Surrounded by hundreds of Christians singing and worshipping God
- Become a better song leader
- Learn new children’s spiritual songs
We are so blessed in this country to hear preaching from the word of God, study His word, and attend worship services. 1000 Voices is just another avenue to show our Heavenly Father how much we love Him. He deserves to be praised:
“For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In His hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.” (Psalm 95:3-7)
