…it inspired me to be a champion of the power and importance of worship in our church. No longer is it something we do, but it’s who we are.
- Pat Nelson, former student
The practical and spiritual guidance I received helped me clearly understand my calling and challenged me to raise up other worship pastors as well.
- Jared Smith, former student
What an amazing opportunity to be grown and educated by people who are influencing to the body on a global scale.
- Paul Brown, former student
