Praise Team Description

This course is designed to increase the spiritual awareness and instincts of worship musicians. Students will learn to perform selflessly in a worship team and lead a congregation in singing traditional hymns and contemporary worship songs. Students will study topics and concepts related to leading a worship team for a church and become familiar with the role of each instrument on the team. Students will be expected to practice the songs learned in class regularly and consistently. The Praise Team will lead worship for convocation on the second Thursday of each month and at the Winter and Spring Concerts. The Praise Team will also be required to lead worship at local churches throughout the year and to participate in the MOST trip.
