I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to grow their worship leadership skills, from those new to the role to those who've been involved for years.

The Worship Leadership Certificate is for worship leaders/pastors from all levels of experience. If you'd like to grow even a little bit in your ability to lead your church or your team, give it a try! - Michael Adams - Philadelphia, PA
I had been considering taking this course for a couple years, and I'm so glad that I decided to take it. It has given me a deeper understanding of the "whys" and "hows" of worship, and has especially affirmed what I was already doing in my worship planning. It has given me the language to explain to my congregation and church leadership why we do what we do. - Becky VandenAkker, Whitinsville, MA
Taking this course completely changed my understanding of worship and corporate church practices, giving me a deeper connection to my congregation and to Christ. Developing this new knowledge and learning how to best utilize my gifts as a worship leader was an amazing opportunity that everyone involved in worship planning, leading and performing should consider! - Ann Elizabeth Smit, Milford, NS
