It’s Advent, but Lent is Coming! – Important message from DS Dawn Taylor-Storm

Dear Southeast District,

As we prepare for Lent 2017,  I am asking each church on our district to register for the “Reboot Your Worship” training offered by Dr. Marcia McFee.  This six-week, on-line training is offered to you at all the churches on our district free of charge and can be done in the comfort of your office at your own pace.  Laity and clergy are welcome to register for this interactive, online experience.   The training will bring new ideas about ways to engage worship as you prepare for Lent 2017.

I am asking at least one leader form every church to register for this training.  As the Lead Pastor, please register today and/or appoint a worship leader(s) at your church to register who can benefit from this training experience.  There is no limit on the number of registrations; all are welcome to experience this interactive, online training.  CLMs, CSMs, candidates for ministry and local servants are highly encouraged to engage this experience.

I look forward to hearing your feedback on this experience.  This will be our first time using an on-line, interactive program as a district.

There is no greater privilege and more humbling experience than leading God’s people in worship.  May this training rekindle in us a deep desire to experience the beauty of worship in its fullness.   May God bless the work of your hands this day.

Together in Ministry,


The Gift of Revitalization: 6-week interactive online worship learning with Dr. Marcia McFee 

Free to You from the Southeast District

We care about resourcing the churches in this area, and we are pleased to offer you the chance to participate in Dr. Marcia McFee’s “Reboot Your Worship” training at no cost to you starting on January 8, 2017. Our participation gives you access to 6 weeks of downloadable resources (articles and videos) and 6 live webinars (recorded for your archives) with Dr. McFee, a renowned worship designer, consultant, and educator ( She will be training churches in five basic ways to improve their worship immediately, no matter the size or style of worship and without a big budget or drastic change. Just as we have an occasional need to reboot our computers, “rebooting” your worship is simply a way to look through fresh eyes and get some fresh skills. AND Dr. McFee will be getting you ready for your best Lent season ever all along the way! All you need to do is register to receive the emails. You can invite unlimited members of your worship team (or potential worship team members) to receive these communications as well. We encourage you to take advantage of this free offer (usually $99 per church) made possible through our district subscription.
