School of Worship

FRversion française

New School of worship for 2017

Since its creation, YWAM, has had a huge impact on worship through its songbooks such as « J’aime l’Eternel » (the most widely used songbook in the French-speaking world) and through the ministry of people like Rold Schneider and Sylvain Freymond.

It is our greatest desire to share this heritage with all who are called by God in his Church to worship and adore.

The School of worshi (SOW) will run a new course based at YWAM in Burtigny, Switzerland from 9 April to 1< July 2017 (lecture phase), followed by a outreach of 8-12 weeks. It is also possible to apply as an independent student for one or several weeks.

During the lecture phase which lasts for 3 months, which we will look at subjects such as:

  • What the Bible says about worship
  • Worship ministry
  • Leading a worship team
  • Composition workshops
  • Arranging and recording music in the studio

Additional instrument classes (guitar, bass, drums, piano, vocals) can be taken during the course with professional musicians. A supplement will be charged for this and the classes should be requested at enrolment.

Outreach phase :
This part of the course lasts for 2 to 3 months, according to the destination and programme proposed. It is an optional part of the course and requires a significant personal and financial commitment. It’s a mission in itself which involves certain challenges and will provide the opportunity for you in turn to share what you have learnt during the theoretical stage.

In 2017 course participants will be able to tour France, Belgium and Switzerland providing training for local church worship groups and also to participate in summer YWAM such as “I love Paris”, the Montreux Jazz Festical and Psalmodia, Gagniere, France.

In order to undertake the training you must have previously completed a DTS (YWAM – Discipleship Training School)
