Hey everyone,

I’m excited to be going next week to the first ever "Worship Influencers Retreat" at Saddleback Church in California.

Rick Muchow, Saddleback’s long-time worship pastor, told me it’s a small gathering of 12-15 worship mentors and trainers from around the world. Rick Warren’s Chief of Staff, David Chrzan, is organizing the event. It’s an honor to have been invited to this exclusive 2-day retreat, which will be held at Saddleback’s Rancho Capistrano. 

To be completely transparent, I don’t know how much I will personally add to the conversation among these movers and shakers, but I’ll certainly be a good listener and learner! (Just call me "sponge"!)

Look for some Twitter updates while I’m there, and a full blog article once I return. I’ll be sure to pass on any collective wisdom that comes from our retreat.
