Peter falls down and worships AFTER Jesus instigates a miraculous catch of fish. Miriam leads over a million people in worship AFTER a miraculous walk through the middle of the Red Sea! Abraham and Isaac worship AFTER a sacrificial lamb is miraculously found caught in a thicket. A small life group of First Century followers of The Way (Christians) worship AFTER Paul and Silas are miraculously freed from prison. Following Jesus ALWAYS brings about miracles which ALWAYS results in WORSHIP!

Living a life of WORSHIP looks a lot like: HEARING then FOLLOWING then JOURNEYING then WORSHIPPING—which is why we’re excited about our inaugural 2019 week-long Worship Retreat with Roger Ryan—a Grammy, Dove nominated, and Juno Award-winning producer who has performed with Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, Cece Winans, and many more. Roger has a heart for service and is dedicated to local church ministry—and we are so blessed to have him join us to share his heart and soul for worship.

Far more than just a week of up-skilling, we pray that the Worship Retreat will be a space:

  • where God’s voice is clearly heard;
  • where decisions are made to follow that voice;
  • where journeys are embarked upon or are picked up where they were left off;
  • where miraculous transformation is experienced;
  • and where unsolicited, uninhibited, raw and visceral WORSHIP is experienced!

Anyone who believes in living a life of worship and who feels called to be part of the Papsda Worship Team for 2019 is invited to attend.

What you can expect from the Papsda 2019 Worship Retreat:

  • amazing worships led by Roger Ryan;
  • engaging workshops for all those serving or who want to serve in Worship Ministry;
  • participating in an incredible Praise Service, IN.HARMONY;
  • inspiring performances at Saturday night’s Rhythm and Flow Gospel Concert featuring Roger Ryan and local artists.

Jesus never asked us to worship Him. He only ever asked us to FOLLOW Him. Worship is simply a response to the transformational experience of FOLLOWING. Please pray that our Papsda 2019 Worship Retreat will be exactly that—a transformative experience of following Jesus, resulting in an outpouring of WORSHIP!
