A Fantastical Lineup for This Conference

It's perhaps fitting that a man who released an album called Church Music would also host a conference by almost the same name.

Crowder's Fantastical Church Music Conference, slated for Sept. 30-October 2 at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, will feature a guest lineup of who's who -- including musicians Jars of Clay, Israel Houghton, Hillsong London, Derek Webb, and speakers Louie Giglio, Rob Bell, Francis Chan, and more. (For a complete lineup, click here.)

"Crafting and choosing the songs the church sings is a critical and crucial work of discernment," Crowder said. Organizers expect lively discussions as the event features workshops with titles like, "The Functional Limits of Creativity," "From Sunday to Sunday: A New Old Vision for Worship," and "Electronic Programming."
