This is going to be a great couple of days with a bunch of other Worship Leaders from all over the country. You’ll get to be led in song and teaching by Vicky Beeching, Matt Maher, Israel Houghton, Evan Wickham, Skip Heitzig, Jeremy Riddle and many others.
I’m in the process right now of trying to figure out how to get a group of my team here in AZ out to this event. The pricing through my code ‘BLOGGERBRIAN’ is really great. The airfare on Southwest Airlines from most cities to Albuquerque is pretty reasonable. Please be sure to use the Registration Form below to register and I would register ASAP. Leave a comment and let me know if you’re going to be there too!
Dates: June 15th-17th 2010
NATIONAL WORSHIP LEADERS CONFERENCE WEBSITE
Pricing only found here for Southwest Conference:
Individual = $200, Group of 3+ = $180 and Student Rate (Ages 15-19) = $150 :: all of these are per person

Some of you are seeing my Twitter and Facebook updates about #CatWest or Catalyst. I’ve got the privilege of being a part of the ‘Catalyst Family’ and serving with their team at their conference here called Catalyst Westcoast.
My role with Catalyst over these next few days will be:
Hosting: Wednesday is Catalyst Labs and I’m hosting one of the rooms. I’m basically making sure it starts and stops on time, tying in with the Speakers, doing announcements and keeping the thing flowing. The speakers in my room today are Susan Isaacs (Author, Speaker), Michael Hyatt (CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing) and Scott Belsky (CEO of Behance). Amazing people and I’m in for a really good day.
CatalystBackstage.com: Thursday morning the Conference starts and I’ll be teaming up with Carlos Whittaker and Anne Jackson to bring the conference ONLINE to those of you that aren’t able to make it here in person through Friday. We will be interviewing the Speakers, Bands, Leaders of notable organizations all day long. It’s gonna be a lot of fun and I think you should tune in, chat it up with us and engage in the conversations both near and afar. We go LIVE Thursday morning at 9am (PST) @ CatalystBackstage.com
Anyways, that’s what I’m doing and it’s going to be an awesome few days. If you don’t know much about Catalyst…well, get with the program. This organizations is a hub for pointing us to great happenings locally, nationally and globally. Here is the promo video for this week at Catalyst.
If you’re here at Catalyst this week…I WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU!! Come introduce yourself.

I’ve recently come to love a song called Your Love Never Fails. It’s such a solid reminder of what the Bible proclaims to us about Gods love. These are some of they lyrics I’m just loving to lead right now. You can catch a great version of this song on Jesus Cultures worship album called Your Love Never Fails.
This video has a sweet little part in it from this past weekend. I got in a pinch over the weekend and called in a favor from an old friend to come play guitar. My friend Mike Eldred is a blues king and can shred him some leads. He’s also the Director of Custom Guitars at Fender, small fish. HA. This past weekend was no exception to his shredding and at the 3rd service during Your Love Never Fails I couldn’t hold back the WOW. HAHA. The guy can just shred and we got lost in it for a minute. We’ve got some AMAZING players here at Cornerstone and they bring exactly what we need every week, but Mike just has this Blues shredding capacity that we really don’t use week to week. So…enjoy his serious shredding and this awesome tune.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the song too!!! Have you heard this tune? Do you like it? Not?

I think this would be my first ‘note-worthy’ publication and I’m excited to tell you about it. I was recently asked to write a piece for Neue Resources which is a branch of Relevant Magazine. I was asked to write about why we sing the songs we sing and the importance of such things. Anyways, I’d love for you to read it and hopefully you’ll catch a small glimpse into my small brain on what I think is important as it relates to the songs we sing.
This is a read for everyone, but especially Worship Leaders.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you read too! Hopefully you’ll enjoy! CLICK HERE TO READ THE ARTICLE (if it’s to small to read click the page and it will ZOOM in for ya).

Today, my good friend Carlos Whittaker’s EP is available for your download and listening pleasure. Carlos, Heather and their family have quickly become some great friends of mine and Promise. We are so excited for Carlos in this new adventure of taking his music to the streets. He’s got an amazing heart for God and people. I think you’re really going to enjoy this worship project. The songs have singable melodies and remind us of Gods love for us and propel the listener to love God more!
At the end of the day when you meet Lil’ Los (Losiah) you won’t be able to resist dowloading Carlos’ new EP. Knowing he’s training this little guy up to know and follow Jesus…well…it’s worth every dollar of the download! Go get the EP on iTunes or wherever and support this amazing new artist and a friend of mine!
