For a select group that wants to go deep

As our Worship Leader Boot Camp covers a great amount of material, many have expressed a desire to go deeper in making direct application to their lives and ministries. Worship Leader Boot Camp: EXTREME begins with the Worship Leader Boot Camp material, combines strong elements of a new training, A Week in the Life of a Worship Leader (new addition to the EXTREME event), and then focuses on practically working through the concepts. Focus areas include:

  • Exploring biblical, missional, cultural and discipleship issues and how they relate specifically to local church settings.
  • Planning worship services that engage the congregation
  • Planning sets of music and their connections (key and textual relationships)
  • Modeling a worship arts team for worship planning
  • Preparing the choir, instrumentalists, band, etc. for worship
  • Preparing media for worship
  • Preparing the congregation for worship
  • Preparing personally for worship
  • Leading the worship experience

Participants are limited to a small group (no more than 12), which allows for more individualized attention. The event is hosted in various locations and runs Thursday lunch through Saturday afternoon.

What people are saying

Worship Leader Boot Camp Extreme is a comprehensive “How to” for church worship pastors and leaders. The conference covers the theology of worship as well as the latest and most innovative ways to “do” worship ministry. I highly recommend it to anyone who is involved in leading worship.

I highly recommend the “Worship Leader Extreme Boot Camp” for your worship leader. As a pastor, I have seen the difference in our worship experience and consider this to have been a great investment.
Jimmy Kiker
Unity Baptist Fellowship, Sophia, NC

The hands-on approach to worship and its dynamics, involving music sets, order of services, proper key changes, congregational arrangements, worship styles, among many other worthy topics, made a difference in the way I lead worship at my church today. I was also challenged spiritually to be open to the Lord and to live worship not just lead worship. I would recommend this retreat to any worship leader who is serious in making a difference in their personal worship and is open to the Lord’s leading in corporate worship.

I have personally attended this special edition boot camp and if you are a worship leader or aspiring worship leader you will benefit greatly by attending. Kenny Lamm is one of a kind in his efforts to teach unifying and transforming worship.
