All throughout scripture we see the command to sing a “new song”. We know that we carry the Imago Dei, the image of God and our God is a creator. How could we not respond to him in creativity with the beauty of a new song in our churches? All of the great songs for the church through the ages have been birthed out of the church. Michael Neale brings his experience of shepherding the songwriters and songwriting process to this workshop. He has been a part of launching hundreds of songs, all from his local church team context, many of which are being sung in churches around the world. New, well-crafted songs from your church will first reflect the move of God specific to your context, it will galvanize your church to worship in community, and it will call the very best of your team, not only in songwriting, but in spiritual formation. Learn the proven steps and process Michael uses to raise up new songs that reflect the heartbeat of worship in your church!
