Dear fellow Worship pastors/leaders

The need for unity and support for NZ worship leaders/pastors has become great. In response, some of NZ’s leading worship folks have formed a network for worship pastors and team leaders. Simply called NZ WORSHIP NETWORK it is a vessel for encouragement, inspiration, training, resource and fellowship.

We’re all about building the local church by strengthening worship leaders who week in week out are leading God’s people into HIs presence. NZ Worship network will facilitate both local and national events for training and encouragement, provide a long awaited and desperately needed website for worship resources which will also provide a platform for forum and blogging and link to NZ’s first worship leader magazine.

A few nights ago over 90 worship pastors and leaders from around Auckland (and as far away as Tauranga and Kerikeri) gathered together at Equippers Church, Auckland for an evening of encouragement and inspiration and had an amazing time of worship, fellowship, teaching, inspiration and supper to boot. Paul Zaia from Harbourside Church, North Shore brought an incredibly timely and prophetic word on authority and many were ministered to. There is definitely a sense of God’s timing over this as so many are hungry, isolated and needing fresh perspective and support.

Keep your browsers bookmarked soon for the release of our resources website. http://www.simpliworship.com. where we’ll be making available tons of articles, thoughts, training materials and updates of what’s happening around our fair land in worship.

Just so you know we’re on the level here are some of the key people joining together in this exciting new venture..
