Awakening Worship Conference

September 14 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm


The Awakening Worship Conference is designed to help raise up the spiritual temperature in worship in our churches. Though worship is not all about music, vocals, and tech, these are some of the common tools the modern church utilizes to help call and inspire people to worship. During the conference, we will invest time growing in skill and heart, all the while praying our leaders, teams, and congregations will come alive in worship.

Hosted at Troy UMC in Troy, IL from 9:00 am – 2:30 pm on Saturday, September 14, 2019.



Don Frazure is the worship pastor at Christ Church in Fairview Heights, IL. During the Awakening Worship Conference, he will be sharing about worship team leadership and expectation and will be leading a breakout on vocals for worship.

Harvest Conferences is a ministry of Harvest Ministry based in Troy, IL.  Harvest has been in existence since 1996 with a mission to help the church make disciples.


Troy United Methodist Church, located at 407 Edwardsville Road, Troy, IL, has approximately 1100 members with an average Sunday morning worship attendance of about 550-600. There are four Sunday morning services, two in the sanctuary and two in the Family Life Center. The worship band leads the music for the modern worship in the Family Life Center and the Awakening Worship Conference will be focusing on the tools and ideas for this style of worship.


As an inter-denominational event, Harvest Conferences seeks to lift up the name of Jesus and equip the church. Though there is no way to control every word spoken by guest speakers and presenters, as a ministry, we strive to base our work around the Great Commission, Great Commandment and the Apostles Creed.
