This is Your Invitation to Another World: Reclaim Your Imagination and STORY

The promo video for STORY in Chicago caught my attention and was like God drawing me in to see what He’s been speaking to my heart over the past few years, about reigniting our creativity to dream like children again:

What if we can reclaim the places where imagination has been lost and find the whisper that beckons us to look past the ordinary…what would we discover?

This is your Invitation to Another World…

STORY is a 2 day conference designed by creatives, for creatives, who tell stories in a variety of industries. Part instruction, part inspiration, you’ll be challenged and stretched as a creative by innovative talks and unique performances. You’ll meet new friends and connect with leading creative practitioners. But even more, you’ll be challenged to become a better storyteller. It is our mission to inspire you, so that you can in turn, inspire those around you to change the world. We want to support the creative class as you work to create meaningful art.

Ultimately, STORY is a tribe in the truest sense of the word. What makes STORY unique in the world of conferences, is that STORY attendees have a natural bent towards impacting and influencing the cultures in which they live, work, and play. Our tribe is not just about telling stories for the sake of entertainment, but they understand that great stories are what change the world.

This year’s gathering will take place on September 29th-30th in Nashville, TN.

Inspiration: Never Going Back from David and Nicole Binion & Covenant Worship and The Sound Worship Conference 2012




Love embracing, captivating, taken by Your grace; Heart so tender, I surrender hold me in this place. I know I’m loved by You…I’m never going back to the way it was.” – Lyrics from Never Going Back

Never Going Back is a moving song from Covenant Church’s new worship album “Standing” released through Integrity Music, recorded at a previous The Sound Worship Conference.



The Sound Worship Conference 2012 hosted by David and Nicole Binion at Covenant Church in Carrollton, TX, where I attend, is coming back this year June 20-23, 2012. I’ve attended some of the past conferences and have always come back spiritually full from the experience of God’s love and purpose in worship.

The daytime sessions (for registrants) feature speakers like John Brockman and John Ragsdale with break-out sessions for musicians, media leaders and others. The nighttime services are open to the public with worship lead by Kari Jobe, Martha Munizzi, the Covenant Worship team and speakers like author of “The Circle Maker” Mark Batterson, Pastor Mike Hayes, and more.
