Making Memories with God through Worship

By Josh Langer on 9 Oct 2019

Did you know that your nose remembers things? Our sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more so than any of our other senses. The smell of freshly cut grass, for example, always brings back memories of my childhood and my endeavor to become a professional soccer player.

The Power of Corporate Worship

By Josh Langer on 11 Sep 2019

Have you ever noticed worship songs, at least the good ones, use superlatives within the lyrics like "all nations," or "You're the supreme God," or "most beautiful." It's the kind of language we usually don't use in our everyday conversations? [video 3:12]

God is everything I need - School of Worship YWAM Tyler

By Jenna Dorey on 8 Dec 2017

 

After my DTS I asked God, "What's next?"

His response, "Go and do a School of Worship."

One thing led to the next and several weeks later I found myself in Texas (never saw that coming) for YWAM Tyler's School of Worship.

Discovering Your Call and Destiny

By Tyler Tom on 3 Nov 2017

Growing up, I loved worship and music. In the ninth grade, I bought a guitar so that I could create my own sound, my own worship for God, and not just sing along with someone’s CD. Although I tried (unsuccessfully) to lead worship a couple times my senior year, I didn’t really have any aspirations to be the next Chris Tomlin or Hillsong United. However during my DTS, God spoke clearly to me through my school leader that He was calling me to be a worship leader, which set me on a journey that would change my life.

By Amy Peterson on 13 Sep 2017

The YWAM School of Worship was one of the best decisions I've ever made

By Tyler Tom on 1 Sep 2017

The School of Worship has been a blessing in my life. It has been full of moments where I laughed too much, moments where I wanted to go home, and moments that stretched me to become more than what I was. As my SOW comes to a close, I get an awesome opportunity to reflect on what I’ve learned.
