Training Modules

Stage Presence

Stage Presence

Carry yourself on stage with confidence.

The ability to carry ourselves with poise and confidence (particularly on stage) is one which can be mastered. Even though some of the best performers and speakers still get nervous, they have learned timeless principles which enable them to command the attention of their audience. We’ll help you hone your stage-craft skills so you can engage your congregation and effectively communicate your message through speaking, singing and performing responsibilities through leading up, down and across.

Theology of Worship

Theology of Worship

“What is worship?” “Why/How do we worship?”

The purpose of this unit is to provide a biblical understanding of the historical development and importance of worship both in a personal context and congregational one. We will delve into current trends and the role of music, the arts and the implications of worship in the lifestyle and calling of every believer.

You will develop language for addressing issues and learn how to relate to people with different responsibilities through leading up, down and across.

Arts in the Contemporary Church

Arts in the Contemporary Church

Evaluate arts to reach and impact people.

Romans 10:14 says, “How will they hear without a preacher [a singer, an artist]?” Students will critically evaluate the different ways the arts can be used to reach and impact people today, from the use of our most effective and current mediums / technologies available to the awareness of current thoughts and trends. There will be opportunity to research and apply your favoured area of creativity to your church’s mission.

Your Unique Leadership Style

Your Unique Leadership Style

Understand the ways we relate to others.

God has wired each of us differently. This variety is something to celebrate and embrace. However, it’s important to understand some of the different ways we prefer to relate to each other and to the world around us. The MBTI profile is a brilliant tool which we explain patterns of behaviour between you,your family, friends and team. These insights will provide you with a leadership edge as you become aware of and build on your strengths.

Worship Leading

Worship Leading

Cultivate an atmosphere conducive to worship.

It’s an incredibly humbling and rewarding responsibility to lead people in worship; showing them the way into the throne-room of God. It’s not just about the right songs, the right band dynamic on stage, the right voice or even the right heart. Worship leaders need to employ a number of strategic methodologies when cultivating an atmosphere conducive to worship where people don’t just sing but really open up and surrender to God. This unit covers the ways we need to interface with the team (production), the congregation (leadership) and with the Holy Spirit (prophetic).

The Heart of Worship

The Heart of Worship

Attitudes and values which honour and truly worship God.

The scriptures talk about true worship and placing Jesus at the focal point of all that we do. But what does that look like for contemporary Christian artists in a church worship team or performing for God? Is there a particular style or way of playing and singing which God finds more desirable? We will help you identify and adopt the attitudes and underlying values which guarantee that when you sing, play, lead and live God is being touched, honoured and truly worshipped.

Song Writing

Song Writing

Build your own masterpiece to honour God.

It’s an incredibly humbling and rewarding responsibility to lead people in worship; showing them the way into the throne-room of God.

Event and Performance Management

Event and Performance Management

Learn how to prepare well for an event.

Church is the “greatest show on earth”, and we are stewards of the way our awesome message gets expressed. All ministry is only as good as its weakest link, so leaders in this program are going to learn what’s involved in preparing for a performance. This will include run sheet development and chairing a production meeting with the key players involved in staging an event. Great creativity and spontaneity come out of great preparedness!

Improvisation & Advanced Musicianship Skills

Improvisation & Advanced Musicianship Skills

Improvisation in worship.

Musical spontaneity is becoming more and more a part of worship life in churches today. The ebb and flow of what God is doing in a service necessitates ‘real-time’ adjustments by the music team. To help capture these extemporaneous moments of ministry, students will up-skill their ability to improvise on their instrument and create an environment conducive to spontaneous worship.

Creative Showcase

Creative Showcase

Freedom to pursue your passion.

What are you most passionate about – song writing, record producing, penning a musicology thesis, event management, solo improvisation, vocal arranging? This is your chance to put your creative ideas into deliberate performance practice. We will be giving you the chance to showcase some of what you have learned. Our panel will then provide you with some helpful feedback.
