Located at IPFW’s Auer Performance Hall in Rhinehart Music Center May 27 & 28
(April 6, 2011) – City Wide Worship Conference was birthed out of a heart to see the city of Fort Wayne encounter God through authentic, passionate worship and hear inspiring, powerful truths that can help God’s people step into their God given destinies.
City Wide Worship is the opportunity to unite the Christ centered churches in Fort Wayne and the surrounding areas in a time of passionate, extravagant worship, in the same vein as Hillsong and Chris Tomlin.
, a church with a vision of sharing the Hillsong-style worship in Fort Wayne, is the drive behind the event. All of the different roles that make up City Wide Worship are all done on a volunteer basis. Tyler Nickols, Worship Pastor for Envision, along with his team, provide all the songs, chord charts, lyrics and also set-up practice times for all involved. There are still openings for choir members. The only criteria is a heart for worship and faith in Jesus Christ. For further information, visit .
This year the conference is expanding to two days, hosting world class, international speakers, John and Lisa Bevere. John and Lisa are both bestselling authors with award-winning teaching materials, asÂ well as speakers at conferences and churches. The Messenger is John and Lisa’s weekly television program, which airs internationally. John will be speaking on his book Extraordinary, and Lisa will be speaking on her newest book Lioness Arising.
The event is also raising awareness to the global crime of human trafficking, with 15% of each ticket cost donated to Pearl Alliance to help fight, rescue, and restore victims of human trafficking.
