Friday night was truly special. Everyone gathered in one large group to worship together, stoke the fire of worship in all hearts and get inspired to lead kids in worship. It was unforgettable!
Everyone was fired up to impact kids through worship. It starts in the heart and reaches out to others! As a group there was excitement, commitment and dedication to making a difference in the lives of children by helping them engage in worship. Nicola Evans from Daybreak Church inspired everyone with her approach to a visitor who might be visiting church for the first time. She brings her experience from working on Disney Cruises and how to engage and interact with new people in individual ministries.
Saturday workshops included worship in motion and songwriting. Groups came together and created songs and expression through motion. The flame of creativity was burning strong!
Your team will walk away with practical ways to lead worship in a live situation with passion, confidence and a format that will make a lasting impact on the children of your ministry.

I really felt like God was there with all of us in that room and I really appreciate your words of wisdom and your listening ears as I needed a place to share what's been happening in my life recently. You two are really great role models and your care of people, even those you just met, is truly evident. I'm grateful.MelissaEncinitas, CA
The care and planning and preparations that go into this event speaks volumes to participants . . . making everyone feel honored and cared for and blessed.ColleenSan Diego
My favorite part is the worship.
Thank you for making REFRESH happen. Every time I come it is a chance to sit, worship, get prayed for, have a great meal, laugh a little bit and cry a little bit. It is a great chance to see the love of Christ, people who are dedicated, who want to see something happen, who want to make a difference for the Kingdom of God. These people who are tired and beat up, and need a chance to sit back and catch their breath a little bit because God is with us every step of the way. Thank you guys for understanding that and making our lives better. Thank you!JohnCarlsbad
