By Richard Fish on 30 Jul 2021

Passion for WORSHIP, DISCIPLESHIP, AND MISSIONS

I saw this guy rocking the guitar, singing his guts out to the Lord, and inspiring the audience to join him in his rapturous worship, and I knew I liked this guy.

What are you doing? You can't sing!

By Tracy Sandiford on 29 Jan 2021

What are you doing? You can’t sing!

In South Africa, as a child I loved to sing and I didn’t care who heard me. 

Unfortunately, this didn’t last long because once I reached high school I was ridiculed for singing.

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]

The Dream Committee // Debut Song

By Richard Fish on 15 May 2019

YWAM Tyler's very own The Dream Committee has just released their first debut song, "Traded," and we just couldn't wait to share it with you. I had the opportunity to sit down with Stephanie and Josh of the band and ask them some thoughts about this new song and how the band is doing. You'll want to give this a listen after hearing the heart behind the tune.

Something Within Needed to be Unearthed

Unearth ~ To find something buried by digging

This past weekend, a lot of digging took place at YWAM Tyler during the Inspire Worship & Missions Conference. We were challenged to pick up our shovels and excavate because something within us all needed to be unearthed.

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.

Finding Jesus Right in our Backyard

By Kriya Herzog on 27 Oct 2017

As a YWAM missionary, I have been to multiple countries and states and love the adventure of traveling on a mission to share Jesus with those in need! I especially have a passion to serve the poorest of the poor, and I love to worship God in what others would consider unreached places and sin cities.
