One-To-One Worship Team Training
Does your church have a worship band? Is your worship “blended,” “multi-generational,” or “more contemporary” in expression? If your instrumentation is band-driven then you have likely discovered that training is a challenge. It’s nearly impossible to get your team to a training event. In addition, the events are in pristine environments with the best sound and media. What if you could have a training event just for your people in your church?
Worship and Music Ministries now has teams that will come to your church and organize a training retreat, working “one-to-one” with your players and singers. The One-to-One worship training team will work with you to schedule on-site training for the following: worship leader, acoustic guitar, lead guitar, drums, bass guitar, keyboard, vocal team, and sound.
Each retreat has a session on biblical foundations of worship. The team will then work on “your music,” providing coaching on playing technique, what to play, and when to play. Themes on worship flow, “the wall of sound,” roles of each participant, and many other topics are covered based on your need! One session covers how to conduct a time saving sound check! Pre- and post-evaluation sessions for your worship leader are also provided.
Contact Nick Duke in the Worship and Music Ministry office for more information.
Worship Renewal Conference
The Worship Renewal Conference is led by Dr. Jon Duncan, State Missionary and Specialist in the Worship and Music Ministry office of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board. The conference can be held in local church settings as well as in Georgia Baptist Associations. Jon has conducted this event in churches, colleges, seminaries, and other settings throughout Georgia and across the country. The primary purpose of the conference is to strengthen churches in biblical worship. Stylistic considerations are explored as well as trends and issues that impact worship practice. Schedule a conference with either Jon Duncan or Dana Bailey. The conference contents include:
- Worship: A Biblical Understanding

- Dealing with Change
- Revitalizing Worship
- Trends that Impact Today’s Worship
