Industry Legend Bill Thrasher, of Super Bowl and Disney fame, is coming to Delmarva to help churches improve worship production skills, and present a more engaging experience. Bill began working in the audio industry as a recording studio mixer while attending high school. He has since held staff positions at both Walt Disney World and MobilSound. Bill’s expertise in the design and operation of audio systems is based on his personal mixing of over 3,000 live presentations for the entertainment industry, Churches and Christian Ministries including the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and his designs of many permanent and portable installations.
This year, Richard Chilvers returns as a Key Note Speaker at the 2019 Worship Production Conference on March 23, 2019 held at Crossroad Community Church in Georgetown, DE.

Worship Production Teams who improve their presentation skills through audio and visual training will serve their church better through a more engaging experience. In 2013, the first Worship Production Conference was held at Crossroad Community Church. Today, the conference is anticipated by audio/visual technicians, worship leaders, and pastors who attend the event for intensive training led by industry leaders. Attendees will discover how to better mix a worship service, how to prepare graphics and video for sermon series, and how to better use the A/V equipment installed at their church.
