Who we are.
The Harp in Worship Conference is for harpists from around the world to gather for concerts, worship, ensembles, workshops, speakers and fellowship as we offer praise to God with music.
Please make plans to join us in-person for an event that will enrich your playing and inspire you to praise God by using your Harp in Worship.
Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth;
Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises.
Sing praises to the Lord with the harp,
With the harp and the sound of singing.
The 2023 Harp in Worship Conference was held at First United Methodist Church,
in the heart of downtown Fort Worth, Texas.
