Bookings are now open for the National Worship Retreat 2018! Everyone involved in worship in the Vineyard family is welcome to this event.

We’re excited to welcome our good friend Dan Wilt from Vineyard USA in 2018. Dan Wilt, M.Min. has served in the Vineyard Movement for over 25 years as a worship pastor, senior pastor, songwriter, theological voice, and spiritual encourager to creative leaders. After years of serving with Vineyard Music in worship leader development, he began to teach at St. Stephen’s University and Indiana Wesleyan on the topics of Worship, The Arts, and Spiritual Formation.

Dan is committed to the Vineyard’s approach to Kingdom theology, and to the vision of creative leaders collaborating in community with fellow local church leaders to create spaces of living encounter with Jesus. He is also committed to faith-centered creative leaders working in and among cultural influencers in their town or city to see the Kingdom come through compassionate relationships.

He is the founder of the 35K member, and created the Essentials In Worship Video Course to infuse Vineyard worship values into the wider Body of Christ. Thousands of worship leaders, in over 90 denominations, have now studied this material.

Dan serves as the Director of Communications & Resource Development for Vineyard USA, and lives outside of Nashville, TN. His greatest joys in life are his wife Anita, and his 3 twenty-something children – Anna, Abigail, and Benjamin.


The National Worship Retreat takes place at The Hayes Conference Centre in Derbyshire. Travel info can be found on their website at
