Testimonies from CRC participants:

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. It's both practical and challenging to your spiritual growth, equipping you with many great tools for worship planning and leadership.  - Corrine Scholman, Ottawa, ON

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 of 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
