Why I’m Looking Forward to Getty Music Sing! In Christ Alone
The Getty Music Sing! In Christ Alone worship conference is coming up fast—September 13 – 15! This year the event is live and in-person in Nashville, Tennessee, though there is also an online option for people who are not yet able to travel. As I think about the conference, there are a few aspects I’m especially looking forward to. (Register here and use the code CHALLIES to get 15% off.)
It is an in-person event. After having to be an online-only event in 2020, Sing! is back to its in-person format at the amazing Bridgestone Arena. However, for those who cannot yet travel, there is an online option available. In that way it is the best of both worlds. But, frankly, I’m especially excited that we can go back to “real” conferences.
It features truly international worship. This year’s Sing! conference will showcase worship from around the world. Thus there will be worship from individuals, groups, choirs, and ensembles from many different nations. In this way it will be a true representation of God’s global church. (See the list of artists here.)
It features a great list of speakers. There can be a sense of sameness in Christian conferences since they so often draw upon a relatively small and static list of speakers. But Sing! In Christ Alone is featuring a long and extremely diverse group of speakers from across the globe and representing a substantial cross-section of the Christian world. Some favorites include Alistair Begg, H.B. Charles Jr., Trip Lee, and Miguel Núñez. (See the list of speakers here.)
It is an all-day experience. There is a jam-packed schedule for the event, with plenary sessions beginning in the mornings and more plenary sessions and concerts closing out each day. Between times there is a host of breakout sessions meant to appeal to every possible attendee. (See the schedule here.)
It is a timely event that responds to the urgent needs Christians are facing in a post-pandemic world. After a year of ongoing challenges, churches around the globe face a unique opportunity. As we gather again, now is the time to sink deep roots in Scripture so we can reset our vision for congregational worship to be radically focused on the glory of Christ. In a broken world, now is the time to restore our hearts and rekindle the imagination as we reflect on our Savior through poetry, music, and artistry. And for the sake of our witness, now is the time to reunite as God’s people to sing and proclaim to all nations that our hope is found in Christ alone.
There is still time to register for the event. If you use the code CHALLIES you can get 15% off!
