"Every DTS graduate should attend the School of Worship!" - Josh Langer, YWAM Tyler Worship Director

Here's why Josh is so convinced of this. We don't just want to experience God's presence, we want to be able to communicate it. The School of Worship at YWAM Tyler is about ...

  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Biblical depth
  • Excellence
  • Identity

We focus on the greatness, victory, and beauty of Jesus! We desire to learn how to appropriately respond to the Holy Spirit and communicate His presence effectively. The SOW is 5 months of immersion in the study of biblical and practical worship.


Are you wondering if this is just a music school? Don't feel like your voice is good enough for leading worship? It's okay. The SOW is a school for everyone who loves the presence of Jesus and wants the nations to come and worship Him. We will spend some time focused on musical abilities and honing your skills, but let's be honest -- worship is more than just plucking a few strings on your favorite guitar or singing a great melody. Here's a little bit of the content in the course:



–  Biblical understanding and application of worship
–  Developing your identity in leadership and ministry
–  Hermeneutics and homiletics
–  Character and lifestyle of a worshiper
–  Holy Spirit and the prophetic ministry
–  Passion for Jesus
–  Ministry unto the Lord
–  Band dynamics, songwriting, and music theory
–  Worship ministry in the local church
–  Recording projects
–  Basic audio and visual training
