A training course for Worship Leaders.

This is a course designed by Mike and Ann Bossingham, who are both Methodist Ministers with a passion for seeing worship led well.
The course is primarily designed to prepare worship leaders for the task of planning and then leading worship. It can also be used as part of a programme of continued development for Worship Leaders and Preachers.

The course is designed around the premise that worship leading and preaching are two distinct callings and giftings and that preachers should preach and worship leaders should lead worship.

The course is available as a download or also as a Leaders' Handbook and CDrom - The Leaders handbook is also available separately for personal study.

Please note that this is a separate product and is not included in the IDEAS package

In addition Mike and Ann are able to come to your church and lead the course over 2 weekends - See more
