Online Worship Leadership Training Course

This fall I am going to have the privilege of taking part in Dwayne Moore's Online Worship Leadership Training Course through his ministry Next Level Worship. This ministry is committed to providing quality worship discipleship resources to churches and believers. Dwayne has been leading worship for over 30 years and is a wonderful teacher and author. His latest book, Pure Praise: A Heart-focused Bible Study on Worship, is a fantastic resource for worship leaders and worship teams. I went through the book once with an online worship community. I plan on going through it again personally and then taking the volunteers in my worship ministry through it. I had the privilege of hearing Dwayne speak at the All About Worship Retreat this past May and you can tell of his heart for worship and his heart for building up and encouraging other worship leaders. He has also designed an online worship leadership training course. I have heard great things about it and I'm very much looking forward to taking part in this course. Here is an overview of the topics being covered:
Session 1: Developing Your Team to Be Ministers Through Music
Session 2: Preparing for and Leading Weekly Rehearsals
Session 3: Dealing with Conflicts, Negativity and Immorality in Your Group
Session 4: Developing Your Personal Leadership and People Skills
Session 5: Understanding the Five Goals When Leading Worship
Session 6: Planning Effective Worship Sets that Flow
Session 7: Teaching Your Team Proper Stage Presence and Presentation
Session 8: Communicating Well With Your Pastor and Your Worship Teams
Session 9: Teaching Your Congregation about Worship and Worship Styles
Session 10: Understanding the Keys to a Long and Successful Ministry
I would encourage anyone involved in worship ministry to sign up for this course. It lasts for 10 weeks on Tuesdays from September 7 through November 9. You can find out a little more about the course and register here.

  1. Ryan,

    I'm really considering this, but I have monthly meetings on Tuesday nights, so I'd have to miss some. Not sure how that would affect things... It looks great, though!
