Ginny Owens, one of the first artists signed to Michael W. Smith’s Rocketown Records, will be joining us on Friday night for a special presentation followed by showcases featuring NCS Songwriters! 

Ginny Owens became a household name as the Gospel Music Association’s 2000 New Artist of the Year. Growing in notoriety as both a singer and a songwriter, winning 3 Dove awards and multiple ASCAP Awards along the way, Owens has sold over a million records over the course of her career. A top performer on the Christian radio charts with hits like “If You Want Me To,” “Free” and “I Wanna Be Moved” among others, Owens has released no less than 11 full albums and 3 EPs, and her music has also impacted mainstream audiences at Lilith Fair, the Sundance Film Festival and the White House.


There will be two (2) catered meals. Thursday evening we will provide a BBQ Dinner from world-famous Martin’s Barbecue with meat, side items, and soft drinks. Friday’s luncheon will be a delicious box lunch featuring a variety of sandwich choices, chips, drink, and cookies. Gluten-free and salad substitutions are also available.

These meals are a great time to sit down and connect with fellow attendees, industry professionals, and published songwriters.

CCM Artist, songwriter, and worship leader Ginny Owens joins us for a special evening of music, worship, and songwriting insights Friday night at The Well Coffee House in Brentwood!

In Love Be The Loudest, her ninth studio release, Ginny Owens throws off expectations and with renewed faith inspires her fans to seek God’s voice above all the others.

“Most people think my greatest life challenge is blindness; I’ve been blind since age three. But that simply isn’t true,” says Owens. “My greatest challenge is doing battle with the critical voices in my head that distract me from what’s most important. It’s the whispers of those who feel sorry for me because of my physical challenge and don’t think I hear their comments.”

With a nearly two-decade long career that has included both Christian and mainstream success, she could have produced another lyrically-driven, acoustic-style album that has become her trademark. But she knew God was calling her to be bold and travel a new path. She set out to design an album that would reflect current music trends and inspire listeners to put feet to their faith.


Child Care:

Child care is not available. Families are important to us, but because this is a training event, children and infants are not permitted in any of the sessions.


 All cancellation requests must be made in writing via email to [email protected] and submitted no later than 10 days prior to the conference. No cancellations or refunds will be processed after that date. When a registration is made for our conference, we begin to prepare a spot for each guest. A $50 processing fee (per person) will apply to all cancellations, this helps to offset the preparation that has already been done. Registrations may be transferred to the next scheduled NCS Weekend Intensive no later than 10 days before a conference starts; transferred registrations are good for one year from the date of the original conference.
