Christian Recording Artist Lara Landon to Lead Worship at We Will
By: Laura Poff
Christian Recording Artist Lara Landon first found her local corps through an internet search for churches in her area. She started attending the Berry Street Corps in Nashville six years ago and has been a regular attendee ever since, even leading worship when she isn’t out of town on tour.
“I’ve never felt pressure to stay,” she said of her experience there. “I also feel like I’m needed and can use my talents there.”
Landon was recently selected by the territorial women’s department to lead worship at the We Will Conference in September. She said that she was excited about the opportunity to attend a conference specifically targeting young women.
“I get excited about strengthening and empowering young women especially,” she said. “If we’re strong and we are on track and listening to God, we can be a really powerful force for change in this world.”
She hopes that this gathering will be an encouragement to other women in ministry.
“When we come together and share stores, we realize that we are not alone in our struggles. We can share knowledge and wisdom and build friendships with like-minded people.”
Her goal in leading worship is to provide a space for attendees to connect with God and feel his presence as they gather together for a weekend where they will be challenged and empowered.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing what God has to show me about being a young woman who is a leader.”
