School of Worship ( CHR 261 )

The School of Worship imparts foundational values and principles to those intending to serve in worship among the nations. Topics include character and lifestyle as a worshiper. We want to instill God's strength and stability by learning to rely solely on Him for our identity, direction and for the victories in our lives. We also focus on understanding the work of the Holy Spirit in worship. Along with this, we will learn to apply worship principles within a cross-cultural context. By having a multicultural and multilingual school, we are facilitating not just experiential cross-cultural worship, but also cross-cultural living. We will explore the biblical and historical aspects of worship, leadership and teamwork, the dynamics of worship and intercession, prophetic ministry, spiritual warfare, creativity and musicianship, and worship in missions and evangelism. We aim to take worship out of the church and into the world in order to reach those who would never step foot in a church.
