Short CourseApril 2019
One Heart 2019
The course consists of teaching in plenum and sessions in smaller groups. This guarantees joint input and possibility to grow in the process. Practical learning between the courses is applied in the seminar, so that we can learn from one another's challenges and successes.
In April we give room for a Songwriter's Masterclass Weekend, where we have intensive teaching and songwriting workshops. Our focus will be the process of songwriting “from inspiration to studio”.
We focus on when you put pen to paper to when the song is produced.
Leading with Culture: we see lots and great churches and worship cultures in the world, but we believe that deciding and leading with intentional focused culture will serve you, your team and local church to grow and reach your community.
Song writing: Teaching, writing and following up. This area brings a high level of songwriting, teaching and tool sharing. It gives the time and the space to develop personal songwriting skills and actual songwriting and following up when we meet.
The up, in and out worshipper: IN = break the bread together/fellowship and being equipped, UP = praise and worship God, OUT = reach out to the community we live in and share the Good News.
These are the areas we need to develop in our journey of being relevant to the generations, growing in capacity and strong in the culture we are creating.
Do invest in yourself, so you can stand stronger in your ministry and your leading of worship in your church. Talk to your leaders about eventually supporting you in taking this course.
After registering here, please send your material (lyrics/cord charts and/or mp3 file) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
