OC WORSHIP NIGHTS
The OC Worship Nights team is made up of a number of leaders and alumni from the United Pursuit School of Worship, as well as others from different churches and communities in OC. They host a monthly worship gathering aimed to unite and bless communities in Orange County. They believe that as we join together as one to exalt God in worship and encounter His presence, it diffuses His nature beyond the limit lines of our denominations, doctrines and cultural mindsets – inviting us in to see the height, depth, and width of the love of Christ and fulfill His final prayer for all believers in John 17:21. The event began out of a simple desire to worship God freely in the context of a family with no agenda, exploring new sounds, songs, and creative expressions. They also felt a strong calling from the Lord to start building a well that people could draw from. They see, feel and know that God is revealing Himself and moving like never before in this time. There is a river flowing through this region and it doesn't start here, or end here, but you can jump in if you want to! Find out more at www.instagram.com/ocworshipnights/
Enjoy these dynamic speakers and their "20 minute Ted Talk Style" messages that will bring us into an encounter with God and His voice! This year there will be a panel of leaders sharing their insight on the topic of "Hearing God's Voice."
