Tanya Ovelson was one of 20 members of the KGF Church Family that took part in the 3rd Annual Levite Summit, designed to invest in and encourage worship leaders in various capacities in the local church. Here's her reflections on the weekend:
Let's first just say that going to the Levite Summit was....well....AWESOME!!
This was my first experience attending the Levite Summit and had no idea what to expect. All I knew was that Brian Doerksen was going to be there. I felt like I was a teenager at a Rock concert...kind of. Knowing that years ago when I would sing "Come Now Is The Time" on the worship team to realize, he wrote that song, among others. But when it came down to hearing him speak an encouraging word or when I was lifting my hands during the worship and music being played...I was having CHURCH.
It was having an amazing encounter with God. I very much enjoyed the Breakout Sessions we went to and didn't just learn from them and gain knowledge but got to know the person teaching the class. Experiencing all of this with good friends also made it that much more sweeter.
It's easy to tell a story but to be there and experience it for yourself is another. The highlight...singing in a choir to back up Brian Doerksen and The SHIYR Poets on 2 songs.
Look forward to next year! Thanks again KGF.
