Why do we provide the Worship Summit and Worship Leader Boot Camp?

  • For healthy worship transformation in the local church, it is of utmost importance for the church to understand the biblical, missional, cultural and discipleship factors that should influence our decisions about worship. Unfortunately, too often this is overlooked and implementing change becomes a carnal fight in the church.

What is the difference between the Worship Summit and the Worship Leader Boot Camp?

Worship Summit:

  • Explores in-depth issues that should influence our decisions about corporate worship
  • Helps establish a theological grounding in worship
  • Focuses less on technical musical issues related to worship

Worship Leader Boot Camp:

  • Provides a comprehensive training, including all the material from the Worship Summit
  • Provides additional training in leadership issues, finding and selecting appropriate songs for use in worship, and the mechanics of worship (putting together a set list, looking at key and textual relationships as well as flow and planning a worship service)
  • Builds on the foundation of the Worship Summit and adds a total training package for worship leadership
  • Ideal for churches seeking to transition to newer worship styles and churches already worshipping in more modern worship styles

Who should attend the Worship Summit and the Worship Leader Boot Camp?

Worship Summit:

  • We recommended that you bring many people from your church, especially church leaders. During this time they will wrestle with critical issues and discuss their implications on their local church’s worship.
  • Those who would not benefit or would be lost in the musical discussion should attend only the Worship Summit.

Worship Leader Boot Camp:

  • Your worship leaders – band, singers, technicians, pastor – should attend the Worship Leader Boot Camp to further gain a grounding in musical issues that will provide tools for worship renewal, particularly focused on moving a church from a group of spectators to a body of active participants in worship.
  • Those directly involved with the production of the musical portion of worship, including the senior pastor, should attend the Worship Leader Boot Camp.

Does my church’s corporate worship need to “transition?”

  • Should a “traditional” church change to a contemporary or unified (blended) style of worship? If the people of your church are connecting to God in worship, if your church is reaching its community, and if your church is making disciples, then you are probably where you need to be.
  • However, if the numbers are declining, worship has become mundane and passive, and you are no longer reaching new people, it might be time to seek God’s guidance on your worship style.
  • Too many of our churches are resting comfortably in what they have always done without really being missional and intentional. The Worship Summit will help you understand these issues.
