About This Class

If you are an aspiring or current contemporary worship leader (or team member) in a Christian church or para-church ministry, this class is for you.  Through discussions on the goals of worship, important perspectives to maintain, and the methods (including songs, etc.) you choose for worship, this class will help you increase in excellence and intentionality in your worship leading.  

As a worship leader or team member, you may also want to enroll in my course called "Play in a Band... better!" where I discuss musical elements and skills for playing as a unit that every worship team member should understand.

Along with my college education in Christian ministries, I have attended numerous courses and workshops specifically in worship leading. I have been involved in worship teams for about 20 years, and have lead worship for about half of those years.  My contemporary worship contexts include Lutheran, Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, non-denominational, from conservative to charismatic, and several para-church ministries.  I've seen God move through worship in each of those contexts!
