Students spend approximately 6-8 hours per week day (approx. 60-80 hours over the intensive) in study, reading or course session, but in a relaxing an informal atmosphere. In addition, some reading (approx. 3-4 books and some articles) beforehand is required, in books ranging across topics and the history of the church.

Our course fee is $2700 CDN (certificate fee, tuition, room and board at Dominion Hill, trainers and transportation while at the event).

Churches are asked to support their worship leader in attending this course.

Reviews can be found here. Some of today’s most influential worship leaders have attended our coursework, and are a part of our Institute community: Reviews.

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
