About ValleyWAC

Bethel Church is excited to host the Valley Worship Arts Conference Saturday, February 27-28, 2015! We are located at 2702 30th Ave S in Fargo, ND.

Main Sessions

Main sessions will include opportunities for corporate worship without the burden of your normal, weekly responsibilities! You’ll also hear from Tom Kraeuter, Executive Director of Training Resources, and songwriter and recording artist, Jason Gray. Expect to be inspired, motivated, and encouraged by these gifted leaders!

Breakout Sessions

Throughout the conference, there will be several opportunities to join both classroom sessions and round table discussions. Classroom sessions will offer teaching on a range of relevant topics. Round table discussions, on the other hand, will give you the opportunity to bounce ideas off others sharing similar interests. YOU get to determine the topics for the round table discussions. Descriptions and sign-up options will be announced at a later date.

What People Are Saying

Featured Speakers


Jason Gray

Singer and Songwriter

Jason Gray has emerged as a songwriter of extraordinary depth, with a noteworthy ability to convey deep theological truths in engaging three-and-a-half minute songs. The Minnesota native is steadily drawing legions of fans who recognize his ability to connect with listeners on an emotional level, offering not escape or distraction, but healing and hope. His 2012 release, “A Way To See In The Dark”, was named Album of the Year by critics and garnered three top-five radio singles, including Nothing is Wasted, which hit #1 for nine weeks.

That success and exposure is a testimony to the power of music and an artist willing to be used by God. As a child, Gray developed a speech handicap. Like Moses arguing with God over his effectiveness as a communicator, Gray naturally resisted the call to ministry through music. But God, the Champion of the lost cause, chose Gray to become a living, breathing, stuttering example of His strength in our weakness. Maybe that’s why so many are drawn to Gray’s music.
