Awake My Lyre Worship Conference was held in October, 2012 in Philadelphia.
We were created to worship. Period.
There are so many traps available for us to stumble into when it comes to worship, and they all take our focus off of God and allocate it to other things: Thinking it depends on the quality or style of music. Judging worship by the atmospherical experience that is produced. Withholding our expression due to personal fears. Going through the motions insincerely so as not to appear unspiritual. Thinking it has to look, sound, or feel a certain way to have the mark of God's approval. Getting distracted by the worship leader's facial expressions. The list goes on and on.
The concept behind Awake My Lyre Worship Conference was to inspire us to be who we are, and worship God for who He is. So many of us are bogged down in the details of life, work & ministry, to the point that we get away from our joy and passion. True worship lifts our own soul out of the mire and refocuses us, at the same time exalting our Creator. A diverse group of worshippers came together for an unforgettable weekend and did just that. Our special desire was and is to help those who are discouraged about stepping out into new creative areas. We want to continue to fan the flame and encourage you to pursue your dreams in God.
