The 2017 Hymn Lovers' Conference (HLC) in Tampa, FL was by far the most in depth conference I've attended since it's inception in 2012. From the atmosphere at the registration desk to the final message from Pastor Harris, you could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Each session gave us food for thought AND an action plan, which fed the mind and the heart! Hymns need to and should remain as an integral part of the worship experience. Making sure hymns are not lost and pushed to the side; making them "attractive" to the traditionalist, "unchurched" and the next generation is our responsibility! The HLC strives to do just that and when we look back on these humble beginnings, we will be able to say God gets the glory, every time we hear a hymn ring out in our worship!
