We're excited to gather at Cross Roads again for a three-day retreat focused on congregational song leading skills! A dynamic team of MMC presenters will lead worship, workshops, and conversation to help you add the valuable tool of paperless song leading to your community’s singing practice. Learn practical skills and diverse repertoire, and explore how paperless music can enrich and expand your congregation's repertoire of sung prayer and praise. This year's event will feature two tracks - one for individuals new to the practice, and another for prior participants seeking to deepen their leadership skills.
Take a look at photos from last year's gathering!
