Then a voice came from the throne saying: “Praise God all you servants…”  “Worship God”
Rev. 19:5,10b

The School of Worship Studies is designed to help raise up a generation who will worship God in Spirit and in Truth. With the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit we want to develop your heart of worship, shape your musical gifts, and form you into a contagious leader. The learning is practical, hands-on and thorough.  Professional instructors will integrate life experience and musical excellence with spiritual effectiveness.

Whether you come for 1, 2 or 4 years our goal is unchanging, to develop people who worship God Biblically and then lead others to do the same.

“It’s not the song you sing, but the heart you bring”.
