PRE CONFERENCE SONGWRITING WORKSHOP
Come early to the conference for a chance to learn from professional songwriters all Friday afternoon. For a small extra fee, you’ll spend lunch-time hearing from professional song-writers, learning some practical principals of songwriting to challenge and improve your songs. Then you’ll break into groups and work-shop your songs with the pros. Check out our presenters / speakers to find out more!
There are aspects of arts and faith that affect every one of us. All of the sessions are planned to bring learning, discussion and a deeper look at the arts, worship and leadership. This year there will be THREE workshop blocks, TWO of which will apply to the TRACK that you select during registration. You are strongly encouraged to attend the TWO workshops in your TRACK and then select a third workshop as your ELECTIVE. We bet that it’ll be hard to choose again this year, but we will make every effort to record all the workshops and provide those free of charge to all registrants after the conference!
INSTRUMENTAL and WORSHIP TEAMS
King David led with skillful hands and integrity of heart. Worship leaders and teams today are called to the same standard. This year instrumentalists will meet separately to learn about their own instruments for the first session, and then gather for a large group session immediately afterwards to talk ‘team’, arrangements, and more. This will be a fun one to experience, with a LIVE BAND demonstrating the train-wrecks and the triumphs that can happen with music teams, all led by an experienced panel of presenters.
With practical demonstrations and opportunities for interaction, you will take your skills to the next level. That includes the recording artists, where some principles never change. Come ask questions and receive advice on how to navigate the many aspects of artistic careers, including song-writing, recording, and building a music ministry.
Fine arts are a valuable part of our culture, community and God’s Kingdom work. Hands on demonstrations and teaching in a variety of mediums are designed to teach and inspire. You’ll receive some excellent instruction, but bring your art supplies with you if you can, because you’ll actually spend time creating this year at the LEVITE SUMMIT, with some very fine presenters to encourage you along the way!
Skills are required to support a creative environment that minimizes distractions and enhances the message and art forms being presented. This year LEVITE SUMMIT will provide a LIVE BAND for the techs to work with. Hands-on learning will be featured as participants mix monitors and front of house, adjust lighting and more, to actually see the results that different mics, speakers, and techniques bring. With unique responsibilities and pressures, technical volunteers and staff are vital to communicating the Gospel. Basic training and round table discussions on best practices will equip tech team members.
This year, there will be a special 2 part workshop specifically designed for students that will focus on leadership, building a worship and music culture, and much more. Student age participants will be inspired about how they can be culture-shapers.
The 2 part dance track will give you the opportunity to learn much about dance, but…you guessed it, you’ll also be dancing. Check out the presenter / speaker list to learn more, but you can count on a meaningful and fun time of learning and dancing. What the body does, reflects what is happening in the heart!
Like any arts discipline, there are principals to learn, but fun to have and challenges to over-come when it comes to the ‘doing’ of the art form. The 2 part drama track will provide all of those elements including the opportunity to do some acting together. Learning by hearing, and then applying the principals!
These are some of the best opportunities for learning. Prayer, Leadership, Prophetic Worship, Artist Temperament, Conflict, Recording Arts, the Music Business, Children’s Ministry are among the many general elective options this year at the Levite Summit. Come and gain new insights, find new resources, and meet like-minded people that share similar successes and challenges.
