Vineyard Music has announced the lauch of the Burn Bright Worship Conference, taking place October 21 through 23, 2010, at the Vineyard Church North Phoenix in Glendale, Ariz.

The event will feature Vineyard artists Autumn In Repair and Chris Lizotte; speakers Eleanor Mumford, Dan Wilt, and Brian Anderson; and other worship leaders including Nigel Briggs of the band Trent, Casey Corum, Anabeth Morgan, and Matt Turrigiano.  The Burn Bright Conference will be preceded by a Night of Worship on October 20, open to the public at no cost.  The entire conference will be recorded for a live CD project to be released in early 2011, and made available as a free download for all conference attendees.

As an event for worship leaders and worshippers alike, the Burn Bright Conference represents a unique approach.  The conference will explore the nature of worship as it pertains to the Kingdom of God.  Sessions and workshops will focus on the mechanics of worship leading as well as healing the sick, issues of social justice, and prophetic ministry.

“Worship is found not so much in the songs we sing as in our lives laid down,” said Casey Corum, Vice President and Executive Producer for Vineyard Music.  “We hope that people will come ready to meet with the Lord, ‘for He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.'”

“The simple act of corporate worship has changed my life forever,” adds Matt Turrigiano, Burn Bright Conference Organizer/Worship & Creative Arts Pastor for the Vineyard Church North Phoenix. “But for many, worship as we know it today is lost in a sea of misconception that turns what we do into a spectator sport to be consumed. We want Burn Bright to be an opportunity to equip the church to worship and experience the transforming presence of God.”

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
