Announcing New Training for Worship Leaders and Volunteers in the TrainedUp Library

The TrainedUp Library is growing again! We add new training video courses every month to the TrainedUp Library and this month is no different.

Last month we announced new training for children’s ministry volunteers focused on child safety and abuse prevention. This month we’re shifting gears to bring you training in our most requested category.

New Video Training for Worship Volunteers and Leaders

We’ve wanted to provide worship training since we launched the TrainedUp Library last year. However, worship training is tough. It’s very specialized, highly specific to each church, and requires a different approach than other ministry categories.

After a lot of planning and preparation, we’ve created worship training that’s applicable across every church worship style and culture. We partnered with Josh Wicker, the Creative Arts Pastor at The District Church, to teach the basics and best-practices of worship leadership for vocalists and instrumentalists. Josh is seasoned enough to bring deep insight to this topic and tech-savvy enough to be up-to-date on the latest methods used in worship gatherings.

We also asked Don Moen, renowned worship music writer and leader, if we could incorporate some of his popular training and he graciously agreed. You can learn more about Don’s worship and training ministry on his website.

What Topics Are Covered?

All together, we’ve included 52 new worship training videos in 8 new courses. Each video includes follow-up questions for your Learners to complete so you’ll know they’ve watched AND understood the training content. The videos are all between 3 and 5 minutes long, so your Learners will stay engaged throughout every course.

Here’s a list of the new worship training courses and topics. Notice that we’ve balanced worship theory/philosophy with practical skills and instrument training. We’ve also covered biblical worship and added training for new worship leaders who are planning worship gatherings.
