Cedarville University will host Worship 4:24, a music and worship conference for students and professionals today and Saturday. The event is co-sponsored by the State Convention of Baptists in Ohio and Cedarville University’s Department of Music and Worship and will feature Dove-award winning songwriter and worship leader Travis Cottrell.
The conference’s main session speaker is Bob Kauflin, author of “Worship Matters” and “True Worshipers.” The conference will also feature more than 80 breakout sessions to help equip worship leaders, band members and church tech crews to be more effective.
The conference will include evening worship on Friday with Cottrell, who serves as the worship pastor at Englewood Baptist Church in Jackson, Tennessee. He has also served as worship leader for Beth Moore’s “Living Proof Live” conference, which took him to all 50 states and several countries around the world.

“Worship 4:24 has become a great training ground for worship pastors, tech teams and laypeople to get great quality training at Cedarville,” said Roger O’Neel, assistant chair of worship at Cedarville University.
This year will also continue WOW (Weekend of Worship) for high school students. They will arrive on Thursday night and stay until the end of the conference on Saturday. They will have special events just for them, but they will also participate in the main conference.
