Worship Leader Training Opportunities
- Worship Leader Training – NC Baptists have launched initiatives to come alongside church leaders to renew the worship in their churches. One of the primary ways this will be done is through offering practical, proven training that will equip worship leaders with the understanding and tools they need to become more effective in their ministries. Training options include undergraduate and graduate certificates issued by accredited schools. The various options address the core competencies worship leaders need to lead their teams and congregations well.
