Why Essentials In Worship Works
As a worship leader for 20+ years, I’ve been gleaning insights from some of the most impacting worship leaders of our generation.
I often wished those insights about worship leading – from the practical skills to the heart behind it – could be captured in a quick, simple, but rich training program that would support a local church’s development of worship leaders.
I had worship leaders to train, and so did my peers – and we all needed a tool that would make it easier.
So I decided to gather up those few decades of insights from so many respected leaders – on the heart and skill of worship leading – and to put them together into the ESSENTIALS IN WORSHIP video training series.
Since that decision, literally thousands
of worship leaders and musicians have used the video and written material to up their game. It’s simple to use, accessible, time-saving, and equips worship leaders with key ideas that change the game for them – week after week.
Worship Leaders and Pastors are realizing the huge ROI of investing in training for themselves, and for their worship leaders/teams.
For that reason, the price of ESSENTIALS has always been kept lower than the sending of one person, to one conference this year.
On the right (or below if you’re on your phone) I’ve gathered a few reviews and recommendations from friends like Paul Baloche, Matt Redman, and John Mark MacMillan, as well as from users around the world. Take a few moments to read some of them.
ESSENTIALS IN WORSHIP is a complete, turn-key worship leader training program
for the training of your local church worship leaders. In fact, many worship teams use to train their entire worship team
Using only Video and an eBook Study Manual, ESSENTIALS has been used (and tested) successfully by thousands. I designed it to be a complete “short-course” in all the basics needed by every worship leader.
You’re busy, and the rest of your worship leaders are, too. This worship training solution was designed with that in mind – worship leaders need quick bursts of insight, in both written and video formats, to keep them growing as leaders.
ESSENTIALS IN WORSHIP is endorsed by many of today’s most respected worship leaders and songwriters (see the right hand column) – as well as by “on-the-ground” worship leaders who are using this every week in their local churches.
6 Essential Areas Of Study
Through the easy-to-use PDF Manual (can be read like a book) and brief teaching videos, this turn-key video training course teaches your worship leaders foundational ideas in:
- Worship Leading Skills (character, skills, set building, bands)
- Worship Ministry Leadership Skills (leadership, roles, planning)
- Worship Songwriting Skills (from idea to song)
- Worship Values (5 values that guide what we do)
- Worship Theology (the big biblical idea of worship)
- Worship History (the ways we worship over time)
Your download includes:
- The Worship Leader Training Manual (divided into 6 sections above)
- 24 sessions of training content
- 30+ quick study teaching videos
- Leader’s Guide Sheet (for group training)
Here is a brief video telling you why ESSENTIALS will benefit your church. In the program, the short video teaching segments are simple, non-flourished (no music in the background to aid concentration on the teaching), and targeted at helping you integrate the brief readings into your worship leadership.
All the videos are designed to be digestible, and to cover important ideas drawn from the wisdom of many of the most effective worship leaders I’ve come across over the last 20 years.
Many churches use ESSENTIALS to train new and current worship leaders in skills, values, theology, and more. They also use sections of it, such as the Worship Values and Worship Theology videos, to train leaders across their worship ministry.
When I founded WorshipTraining.com many years ago (now over 31K members), I did it so that worship leaders could engage with this material. After thousands used it, I saw that it really was the solution for developing both leaders, and teams, in the local church.
ESSENTIALS IN WORSHIP is designed to give you all the tools you need to take your worship leadership, worship leaders you mentor, and your entire worship ministry, to the next level of growth.
I think it will be an investment in your leaders that will impact you and your local church for decades. If you can’t afford the price, I need to personally hear from you (message me on Facebook).
There’s no self-promotion here: my dream is that you succeed in worship ministry, and if my tools can help (which I deeply believe they can), I want to make sure you get them.
I hope that ESSENTIALS IN WORSHIP can be a part of your training success this year.
