Our School of Worship was birthed out of the belief that when a generation rises to lift up true worship and adoration to the King of kings, there will be revival on the earth. We want to be that generation, to bring that revival, to see Jesus’ glory revealed.

As a base, we hold the values of worship, prayer, and evangelism at our core. We believe that all three are needed to effectively make disciples of all nations. In this school we focus on these same core values as we seek out what it means to carry the true heart of a worshiper, while creatively worshiping by using every art form. We desire to see innovative worship arise in Spirit and Truth among the nations to point the lost to the heart of the Father.

Will you be a voice in this generation to call together an army of worshippers? Whether you sing, play an instrument, dance, write, or are an artist, we want to help you develop your talents and your heart to impact the world around you as an example of deep intimacy with the Father. We believe that growth as a worship leader means pursuit of intimacy with Jesus, excellence in skill, and a passion for the lost to know the wonder of salvation.

Fulfill The Great Commission

After your lecture phase, you will be prepared to embark on the mission to “make disciples of all nations” and “preach the Gospel to all creation.” After SOW, you will take part in a mandatory outreach with our base. These outreaches will help you explore the depths of your heart for the lost and for the countries and people that the Lord is calling you to. Some details of these outreach opportunities can be found below and more will be given to you during your lecture phase. Wherever God may be calling you, this school will give you practical tools for leadership and making an impact for the Kingdom of God.

In YWAM we have a strong culture of depending upon the Lord for provision. We are convinced that if God gives the call, He will provide the means for us to move. We encourage you to pray about how to partner with others in raising support, knowing that it is ultimately up to the Lord to provide the way for the mission He is calling you to!
