The first day of the World Music Mission Kampala Conference was a big success. It passed like a blur, but many awesome moments took place, and God was definitely among us!
Things have been going at a fast pace, with lots of students attending and lots of responsibilities for each of our team members. I’ll have to let the pictures do the rest of the talking!
We started off the conference with a spirited time of worship music. Africans know how to do it right.
Kurt kicked off the teaching with a class on songwriting, and another on the Biblical Heritage of Musicianship. The students seemed to be locked in, taking notes, and soaking up the teaching.
When Pastor Brian and Pastor Anthony weren’t teaching, they spent time building relationships and having good conversations with some of the students.
After lunch, Pastor Brian spoke on the topic of “Passing it On,” encouraging the students to follow a biblical model of discipleship. Brian is a gifted preacher, and has a true heart for the things of God.
In the afternoon each day, we will be splitting up into “breakout groups,” where students can choose a subject that they want to grow deeper in. We’re offering guitar, vocals, piano and even a photography class taught by yours truly 🙂
I’m telling you, these birds are MASSIVE!
Who knew that their Pastor Brian had so many dance moves?!
Not quite sure what was happening with this guy, but the students thought he was hilarious.
So many wonderful faces in this place.
After the conference had officially ended for the day, several of the guys who took my photography class stuck around to talk shop. They are a talented bunch of creatives, and are eager to learn more. We asked each other questions, and I found myself being inspired by them too.
Look for an update on day 2 of the conference very soon!
