Commenting on the Sing! 2018 Conference, Keith Getty said:

“How and what we sing affects how we live. Singing is a key intellectual foundation to how we think, feel and pray. It shapes the moment-by-moment decisions we make that forge our character, our witness, our legacy and ultimately, all for which we’ll one day stand before God to give account. That’s why I’m so excited about what’s going to happen at this year’s Sing! 2018 Conference.

“This year, we will focus on ways the Psalms give us an authentic and big picture view of the Bible. The Psalms help illustrate the importance of God’s people singing and help us have a better understanding of our faith. We will hear from top Christian pastors and leaders on ways we can deepen our faith by singing together for the Gospel.”
During the first annual 2017 Sing! Conference, 110 countries were represented in the live stream audience and it was the third largest live-stream event in LifeWay history.

The Sing! Conference gratefully acknowledges the support and sponsorship of Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM), the nation’s original health cost-sharing ministry providing compassionate, faith-based healthcare cost solutions for Christians in all 50 states and around the world.

CHM president and CEO, Rev. Dr. Howard S. Russell, says, “We don’t want to just be a sponsor; we want to be a partner in spreading the message. There is a strong relationship between spiritual and physical health, and we believe that the Sing! conference is uniquely able to help encourage both, in individuals, in families and in congregations of believers.”
