Worship Camp

June 6-10, 2016 and June 13-17, 2016

Explore the opportunities for leading worship in your school ministry or local church by coming to Worship Camp! Whether you’re a guitarist, keyboardist, drummer, vocalist, or sound engineer, Worship Camp will give you the tools you need to excel as a member of a worship team.

During this inspiring week, you’ll sharpen your musical abilities, develop a theology of worship, and enjoy fun activities that will prepare you for effective worship leading. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to play with members of Cedarville’s HeartSong touring teams.This week we will have both the orange and blue teams led by Grant McCurdy and Dexter Carpenter, respectively.

Whether you come as an individual or with your entire band, you’ll interact with Cedarville faculty, staff, and students to gain hands-on experience in leading worship. You’ll also be introduced to Cedarville’s new worship degree, an interdisciplinary program designed to prepare you for future worship ministry.

Worship Camp is open to musically talented Christian students, ages 14–18.
