Songwriter, worship leader, and three-time Dove Award winner Paul Baloche is coming to Whippany, NJ on October 11-13 for Joysongs’ annual worship and media conference.
The three-day event kicks off with a free worship night led by Baloche and continues with a Saturday full of hands-on workshops taught by local experts in sound & tech, media, vocals and musicianship. The weekend finishes off with Sunday service at Abundant Life Whippany, where Baloche will be leading worship.
Baloche, who is best known for penning contemporary hymns like “Above All” and “Open the Eyes of My Heart,” will be leading two Saturday workshops on songwriting and playing with a team, all while drawing from his experience recording with artists like Michael W. Smith, Casting Crowns and Matt Redman. He will be joined by Filipe Mora of Christ Church, Michael Rosa of Abundant Life Whippany, Doug Gould of Worship MD, and other local worship directors and teachers for a diverse set of Saturday workshops.
Joysongs was founded in 2002 out of the worship ministry at Abundant Life Whippany, an interdenominational church in Whippany, NJ. Founder and director Donnie Rosa started the annual Joysongs conference with the mission of educating, equipping and empowering the local church by revolutionizing the way they do worship.
This year’s conference theme “RISE UP” is based on the prophecy of the rebuilding of the tabernacle in Amos 9: “On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David which is falling down and repair its damages. I will raise up its ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old.”
The entire weekend is designed with that goal in mind — rising up. The Joysongs team is striving to challenge local worship and media teams to rise up to a new and greater level of excellence in every area.
