10 reasons to attend NWLC Southwest in Albuquerque

One of the greatest parts about planning and attending a National Worship Leader Conference is the opportunity to travel and explore new places. And with those new places come new friends, new insights, and new outlooks. After helping plan and promote NWLC Southwest, I’ve learned a few things about Albuquerque, it’s culture, and what makes it such an intriguing place to visit. Thought I’d share.

Here are 10 reasons why attending NWLC Southwest is not only good for your ministry, but also good for you.

1. The location

I’ve never been to Albuquerque but all I hear is great things. Its sunny climate and artistically diverse culture are reasons enough to explore this Southwestern area solo or with a team.

2. Refresh and reconnect

Worship leaders like you constantly pour out so that others may fill up. This conference is designed for worship professionals and volunteers to refresh and reconnect with the heart of God and the art of your ministries.

3. Dr. Leonard Sweet

Esteemed author, preacher, professor, and scholar, Sweet is a communications expert and has valuable insights and teachings that every worship and ministry leader should hear.

4. Air adventures: Balloon rides

Albuquerque is the “Balloon Capitol of the World.” Why not take time to sail the skies in perfect summer weather conditions? I know I want to!

5. Vicky Beeching

Worship leader, songwriter, and teacher, we’re excited to have Vicky join us once more with not only her music, but also her encouraging words and teachings.

6. Calvary of Albuquerque

Calvary of Albuquerque is one of the largest churches in the nation. Senior pastor, Skip Heitzig, reaches people around the world through his multimedia ministry, several books, and his teachings on God’s Word.

7. Anthony Evans

Worship artist and songwriter, Anthony Evans, invites and inspires others to join him in worshiping God with passion and soul. He was one of my favorites from last year’s NWLC in Kansas and I’m excited to hear him again!

8. Unique and Diverse Culture

Recognized as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country, Albuquerque’s ethnic tapestry is reflected in its architecture, artwork, cultural centers and cuisine, making the city an epicenter of authentic Southwestern culture.

9. Israel Houghton

With a cross-cultural style of worship music, Israel Houghton is a perfect fit with Albuquerque’s diversity, creating a unique and compelling atmosphere for NWLC Southwest.

10. Southwest Cuisine

Food is always an incentive, at least for me. Enjoy the Native American-inspired tastes such as blue corn, squash, chili peppers, and other ingredients brought by Spanish settlers. Sounds like true soul food.

Did I mention Evan Wickham will be there too?

We have confirmed worship leader and artist, Evan Wickham, for NWLC Southwest and we’re so excited about what he’ll bring to the conference. Evan is the Worship Pastor at Horizon Christian Fellowship in San Diego, CA., and although he ministers in music and speaks at churches, retreats, and conferences worldwide, this is his first time at an NWLC and we’re looking forward to it!

Evan's latest album: "Above the Sky"

Vicky Beeching just added to the NWLC Southwest lineup!

Gifted songwriter, teacher, and worship leader, Vicky Beeching, has just joined  NWLC in Albuquerque, NM, June 15-17! Vicky will be leading worship and teaching.

Vicky has joined NWLC twice before, and last year taught a class called “The Role of a Songwriter: Communicating what is on the heart of God,” which looked into how to write better lyrics or melodies while looking at the vast panorama of why we write the songs in the first pace. An amazing teacher and musician, we’re very excited to have her join for NWLC10!

Vicky also has a new “Limited Edition 3-track EP” releasing on February 16! Check it out on her website and blog here!
