School of Worship ( ATS/CHR 261 )

The School of Worship is a three month course (followed by an 8-12 week field assignment) imparting foundational values and principles to those aiming to serve in worship among the nations. The School of Worship trains worship leaders, musicians and singers who are passionate for the presence of God as their first priority. We believe God is raising a generation that is thirsty and hungry for His presence, a generation that longs to see His kingdom being established among the nations as we declare His glory in worship. We believe that we cannot sing and talk about a Loving and Almighty God if our lives do not reflect that there is a Loving and Almighty God. We believe that as worshippers we cannot take others into a place where we have not been. That is why we believe in the importance of being in His presence, first pouring our love and affection on Him as individuals and as a worship team before leading others. We believe that we are co-creators with Jesus, therefore we can use music and creativity to draw the nations to Him. We believe that God has placed a piece of His heart in our hearts, a story to tell and to sing about, for a time such as this. Note: Each SOW varies in emphasis, please check individual SOW websites and folders.
