Highlights from the Songwriter’s Conference

This is what I enjoyed most about my time away:

  • Mount Hermon, California – absolutely beautiful. Massive redwood trees, great weather, beautiful retreat center.
  • Hanging out with Bob Kauflin – Bob was one of the keynote speakers who I was able to get some one on one time with. I’ve rarely been so affected by a person – visible love for God, love for people, and all around great guy.
  • Hearing Derek Webb speak and sing – marvelous.
  • Visiting random Mexican restaurants with my Dad.
  • Drinking an iced blended coffee at ‘Coffee Cat’ that was even better than a Starbuck’s Frappacino.
  • Realizing the highest calling as a worship leader/songwriter is ministering in a local church setting to a specific body of people. Super-stardom should not be the highest goal of a minister.
  • Getting to record my song ‘Rising Glory’ for a potential CCLI TV broadcast!
  • Having a roommate named Socrates – what a great guy!
  • Connecting with Ben Gowell.
  • Meeting some great songwriters and worship leaders from around the country.
