Enrolment in the first semester of Pathways School of Worship Leading 2020 is closing this week: 7 February.
The School of Worship Leading exists to equip and empower worship leaders, supporting our church communities as they worship corporately in a variety of contexts.
Rosie Devery is the School of Worship Leading Coordinator, she says it's a privilege to walk alongside students from a variety of churches around New Zealand as they explore biblical worship: "Our culture lends itself towards performance, but the heart-reality is that people are longing for worship which is Christ-centered, Spirit-filled and imbued with the richness of Scripture."
Rebekah Opie is a worship leader, musician and vocalist at Lifezone Church in Tauranga. Rebekah says the Pathways School of Worship Leading provided a solid foundation that was both practical and richly theological:
"The course really deepened my understanding of worship from a theological view, specifically understanding how the 'why' of worship deeply affects the 'how'. It was a joy to learn alongside others who are also in similar positions in their churches. One of our lecturers challenged us that in many churches the time spent in worship is equal to the time spent preaching, and we rightly expect our preachers to invest time into training and study, and yet we don't put the same time or energy into training our worship leaders. The School of Worship Leading is an opportunity to make a commitment to further training and invest in the calling God has given you."
