Two of South Africa’s foremost musicians, Retief Burge and, Dewald Gouws, will lead praise and worship during the Karoo Mighty Men Conference. Burger and Gouws know and love the Karoo. They agree it is an amazing privilege to minister at the Mighty Men’s Conference.
RETIEF BURGER says praise and worship prepares the ground at the Mighty Men conferences for the word to fall into responsive hearts by opening-up even the hardest of hearts, but in many ways it is also a way of bringing across truth. “In Colossians 3:16 Paul says we must teach one another: ‘in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord’.
“People definitely respond to the revelation of God through worship. It is a very important component of Mighty Men Conferences, therefore we want to prepare well, choose the right songs to serve people and help them connect with the Lord and to worship Him.”

1 Cor: 21-5 Christian brothers, when I came to you, I did not preach the secrets of God with big sounding words or make it sound as if I were so wise. I made up my mind that while I was with you I would speak of nothing except Jesus Christ and of His death on the cross. When I was with you, I was weak. I was afraid and I shook. What I had to say when I preached was not in big sounding words of man’s wisdom. But it was given in the power of the Holy Spirit. In this way, you do not have faith in Christ because of the wisdom of men. You have faith in Christ because of the power of God
