Session Two:
Joseph &Charla Apana (Worship Writers)

Joseph & Charla traveled with “Isaiah” A Christian Praise and worship band evangelizing throughout the states. With over 17 years of experience in intimate worship. They Led worship for The International Church of Las Vegas Childrens Ministry for five years and trained children to lead worship. In Worship they found a call to write while in the presence of the Holy Spirit.

They’ve written numerous songs and devotionals and are coming out with their first book, “Forty days of Fasting”. Charla finished her first screenplay in 2006 “Beyond Blessings” and is now working on their second script “Hawaiian Cowboys”.

The Apana’s specialize in teaching intimate worship to writers and emphasize on bringing the Holy Spirit-Gods presence as the ink hit’s the paper. Being modern day scribes in this 21 century. They will worship and bring the presence of God and activate writers to hear God’s voice and write it out. The Apana’s will show examples of what it looks like to hear Gods voice in every area of life, especially in writing through a life style of intimate worship. Matthew 5:3-10 The beatitudes teaches us to have a humble heart to carry Gods presence everywhere you go.
