” A NEW GENERATION OF WORSHIP AND MUSIC CREATIVES ARE EMERGING-
SURRENDERING OUR HEARTS, EQUIPPING OUR HANDS AND ADVANCING
WELCOME TO SCHOOL OF WORSHIP!
School of Worship is a live-learn hands-on school put together to empower Worship Creatives with the practical and spiritual tools needed to effectively carry-out worship ministry in ways that are creative and RELEVANT to culture, wherever God has called them to.
We believe that if worship and music ministry is carried out the way God intended it to be, it CAN effect lasting change by reaching the lost, discipling people and eventually transforming nations; which we believe is your greatest desire. Worship Ministry is a healthy synergy of the right Spirit, the right Skills and Creative Relevance.
SO IN OUR SCHOOL WE FOCUS ON:
- Grow deeper in your relationship with God,
- develop your musical gifts and also acquire other skills needed to stay relevant and effective,
- gain in-depth and much needed Biblical understanding of the Ministry of Worship,
- Gain leadership insights that will help you to function effectively as a servant leader in whatever place and culture God has placed you.
