This year the Academy for G.O.D. began a class entitled "Worship Band". In this class, students will learn worship songs, instrumentation, and how to collaborate together to lead an audience into worship. This week they got to meet with a teacher in a small group setting to play the instruments that they are interested in. The students are very excited about this class and It is quickly becoming a favorite.
I have personally been leading worship for a little over 14 years. I began singing in my church worship band at a very young age. Getting that opportunity in my childhood was an experience that greatly impacted my life. It was beneficial because it taught me how to worship and in turn how to get close to God. This is a prayer of mine for all of our students. I am greatly looking forward to seeing them work together to create beautiful music, but more importantly that they will learn how to come near to God.
