Worship Training Seminar — 4 Weeks

The Worship Training Seminar is a 4-week course designed to give you core training and teachings modeled after the YWAM SOW (School of Worship). Though it is a condensed model, it will be intensive, consisting of lectures, workshops, assignments and outreach opportunities built into the program. Upon completion of the school you will also receive 4 FLW credits with the University of the Nations.

Students will have the opportunity to hear from seasoned missionaries and international Christian leaders who are being used by God in the nations in the realms of worship and music. Students will have the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom in contexts that will help them preserve what they've been taught and follow the Holy Spirit more freely.

Come join us as we walk together to pursue the Lord and believe for transformation in the nations of the earth!
