Bringing 
WORSHIP
to Life
SEPT 24th - 25th, 2021
NEW FREEDOM, PA 

Welcome to the 5th workshop in the Bringing the Stage to Life ("BSL") series, Bringing WORSHIP to Life. For so many Hearing people the most tender and intimate parts of a religious service is the worship. At this workshop we will teach techniques to show you how to take worship from the mundane to the intimate and powerful. We believe the Deaf should have the same accessibility as the Hearing, and the only way that can happen is to Bring WORSHIP to Life. If you want to learn to interpret worship, whether in a church or concert, on a more powerful and intimate level, this is the workshop for you! We focus on Christian/Bible based churches, however additional religions can be covered in brief upon request. The workbook is huge. The information is extensive. The workshop is HILARIOUS! The environment is safe and full of love and life. Join us for this one of a kind workshop which will change hearts, change lives, and change careers.
