I believe that what we do in Church on Sundays has the potential to change our lives, and through us, our world. How we worship defines how we live!
Because of this conviction SACREDISE was brought into being as a publishing, resourcing and training ministry. My quest is to help churches, and the people in them, to turn their worship into moments of deep, transforming encounter with God that lead us out into the world as true followers of Christ and agents of God’s love and justice.
Through books, CDs, seminars, online resources and articles, Sacredise seeks to be a creative, challenging and helpful resource to the Church worldwide.
My name is John van de Laar and I am a Methodist minister and worship leader with over thirty years experience in a wide variety of church and musical settings. I have been the worship director for three National Conferences of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa, and the chief liturgist for the dedication of the new Seth Mokitimi Methodist Seminary in 2010.
