February 8-10, Tim and Maryl had an incredible time with the worshipers and worship team of the The Church on the Mountain in Welches, Oregon, just a few miles from the base of the majestic Mt. Hood. John Badger, worship pastor, has a great team of passionate worshipers and musicians with an array of experience, depth and creativity. Being with them for 3 days was a pleasure and a delight from the beginning session on Friday night, setting the vision and sensing their heart in worship through a great time of teaching and practical application all day Saturday to Sunday morning sharing it all with the whole congregation. The worship team literally shone on Sunday as they worshiped with great abandon and confidence. The church was packed and so responsive to the sweet presence of Jesus throughout the morning.

Though The Church on the Mountain is somewhat secluded up in the mountains, they have an array of musicianship that would bolster the music departments of many larger churches. They also have a wonderful women’s worship ministry team that treated each song uniquely and exquisitely and helped all of us focus on Jesus a little bit more through their ministry.

After the seminar, the comments were very encouraging: ‘life-changing’, ‘renewed’, ‘invigorated’, ‘refreshing’, ‘beyond our expectations’, ‘amazing’, etc. What a thrill to work among faithful followers of Jesus and see immediate fruit of our labors in the joy of worshiping our Lord together. The Song is alive on the Mountain!
