by Michaela Carpenter, Public Relations Writer

The eighth annual Worship 4:24 conference will bring people from hundreds of churches to Cedarville University on January 27-28. The conference will further train worship leaders and lay leaders, equipping them to serve well in the different areas of worship.

Worship 4:24 is the largest annual conference held on Cedarville’s campus during the school year. This year it will include nearly 100 different seminars addressing the variety of roles that people have in worship, catering not only to worship leaders but also to band members, tech teams, people in administrative roles and pastors.
“We really present an entire team approach to worship leading,” said Dr. Roger O’Neel, assistant chair of worship and associate professor of worship. “This conference helps equip people to do that well.”

The conference will feature Gateway Worship, known for songs like “Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King” and “Revelation Song,” as well as keynote speaker Mike Harland, director of Lifeway Worship Resources.

Other well-known guest speakers include Dove Award-winning songwriter Carl Cartee, who has written songs for artists like Elevation Worship, Laura Story and Aaron Shust, and Dove Award-winning musician Grant Norsworthy, former band member of both Paul Colman Trio and Sonicflood.
