What happens in this course?

We train and activate gifted worshipers to love God, be grounded in the Bible and grow in their skill set.

Training Phase (3 months)

Learn from renowned musicians, worship leaders, producers, and more.

Our desire is to raise up a generation who prioritizes a lifestyle centered on God’s presence in worship and intercession as the basis for reaching the lost. We aim to train and release you to be a lover of Jesus. Grounded in the Word of God. Skilled in the craft of music, songwriting, music production, and worship leading.
Character

Heart

The foundation of any worship ministry is a life totally dedicated to following a deeper relationship with God. We desire to train students to pursue a daily walk with God that produces greater freedom and openness in their relationships with others. The “true” worshipers that Jesus talks about in John 4 are those who are not showy or fake but whose lives fully reflected all they portray in front of others. We aim for honesty and integrity in daily lives and in ministry.

Topics:

  • Knowing God in Worship
  • The character of the worshiper
  • Work of the Holy Spirit in Worship
Knowledge

Head

Biblical principles regarding aspects of worship leading help the students gain valuable understanding for a solid grounding in this ministry. We teach foundational principles of Thanksgiving, Praise, and Worship along with Leadership and Teamwork. Special emphasis is given to the working together of worship and prayer along with the leading, guiding, and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Regular written assignments contribute to the students personal growth. For example, a 3-month continuing study of the Book of Psalms which highlights the power of lyrics and express our hearts of God.

Topics:

  • Biblical & Historical Basis of Worship
  • Worship’s role in prayer & spiritual warfare
  • Worship Leadership & Teamwork
Skills

Hands

All students are given the opportunity to develop creativity and musical skills, especially in songwriting and music theory, unlocking and releasing talents that God could use for his glory. There is optional training in guitar, keyboard, bass, drums, vocal, and song production. An important ingredient of the school is gaining an understanding and skills in cross-cultural expressions of worship as preparation for ministry in other nations and cultures.

Topics:

  • Creativity & Musicianship
  • Worship & Mission in the Nations
  • Songwriting & music production

What makes us unique?

Presence

We focus on Biblical principles regarding aspects of worship, helping you gain a valuable understanding for a solid ministry foundation. We emphasize teamwork in worship and prayer along with leading, guiding, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Regular written assignments contribute to the students’ personal growth.

Impact

As a missions community, we now realize that of the unreached people groups across the earth, many of them prefer oral modes of communication. Using songs to communicate the Gospel is no longer a nice, ‘secondary’ way to preach. It is an essential tool for engaging with, learning, and retaining scripture. Additionally, song is a universal way for the body of Christ to express praise, love, affection, and enter into the very presence of God.

Nations

We desire to see nations transformed by God. We are expectant that as we equip local peoples, who know their culture and context best, we can come alongside to activate them into ever-increasing impact in their own communities. Writing their own scripture/scripture-based songs, in their own styles, and their own languages. Every tribe and tongue exalting God in their unique, God-created ways. As we say here in YWAM from every nation to every nation.
