JOHN CHISUM/CHRISTIAN SPRINGERVeteran Christian music industry exec and prolific songwriter John Chisum is the founder and Managing Partner of Nashville Christian Songwriters.

Internationally acclaimed worship leader and songwriter John Chisum returning this weekend to The Cove in Asheville, N.C., to lead worship for the seminar, "How To Be Right Without Being Insufferable." The event takes place Aug. 3-5 and is led by popular author, seminary professor, and radio personality Steve Brown at the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove.

According to Brown, America has gone through a "seismic shift" in our lifetime, "as evidenced by the apathy and sometimes outright hostility toward Christians and their beliefs." However, he adds, "the Gospel is the best thing to ever happen to human beings; it's the unbelievably good news of God's love and forgiveness.

The seminar, "How To Be Right Without Being Insufferable," is designed to teach believers how to avoid the pride and damage to relationships that being right can bring by exploring biblical ways to speak truth to the world and still be heard.

"It's always such a privilege to lead worship at The Cove and to participate in the ongoing legacy of one of the world's greatest and most respected leaders, the Reverend Billy Graham," Chisum says. "His grandson, Will Graham, is carrying on this ministry without missing a beat and is often on hand to greet people as each event begins. There's a tremendous atmosphere of worship there and I'm always refreshed after leading."
