About WATS


There has never been a conference quite like this one. Our staff has taught and participated in hundreds of Contemporary Christian Worship and tech events over the past twenty five years. Hosted by Yamaha, Shure, Martin Lighting and Yamaha Commercial Audio, this in-depth, hands-on and highly personal event will be held at some of the most beautiful Christian conference centers in the country.


On hand will be Summit sponsor pro audio experts along with leading musicians, vocal instructors and world-class sound professionals. The in-depth three day training will include tracks on Audio, musicianship, music production, vocal, lighting and media including video. What Makes the Summit Unique


Theory and Practice


Most technical training conferences are one or two days long —sufficient for fundamental theory, but less so in applying the theory to real situations that happen back at home. There isn’t enough time for real world testing with an expert on hand to serve as a guide


Really Really Hands On


What makes the Summit so different than other "”hands-on” sessions is that applications and principles will be demonstrated in real time, with real musicians in real rooms that aren't conducive to live sound, just like the ones in most real churches. And participants will have their hands on real gear.




Fees for the complete course of Summit sessions begin at just $149.00 for three full days.  In addition, meals and lodging are available on site at nominal charges and group discounts apply.  The sponsors of the Worship Arts Technology Summit are underwriting much of the costs so that as many church tech teams as possible can attend.




Most of the WATS events are held at Christian conference centers for a couple of reasons. We have been able to partner with some of the most beautiful venues in the country to offer amazing facilities and affordable pricing. But the true value of these locations is the amount of time spent with each attendee. From the time you get up in the morning to the time you roll into bed at night, the gear is available and the instructors are right there on site sharing time, experience and fellowship.
