Hear from Alumni

Jen Ledger, Skillet – Class of ’07

“Before I had done the School of Worship, I honestly believed I was a Christian. It wasn’t until I did the School that I realized how far I was from living truly and wholeheartedly for Christ. If it wasn’t for the School of Worship, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Testimonies from Class of 2016

“A lot of people come into the school of worship thinking it’s just a music school, but it’s not; It’s about worship in every aspect of our lives and fully permeating everything that we do, not just a Sunday morning and not just in our music.”

– Andrew Leifker – Cadillac MI, Class of ’15

Morne Van Rensburg
“Through this year I have discovered the power of prayer – I have seen the power it has to change relationships, to heal our hearts, and completely change our lives from the inside out.”

Morne Van Rensburg – Taunton, England, Class of ’15

Kendra Duffield
“In coming to the school, I realized that even though I had previously led thousands of people in worship, I had just scratched the surface of what worship really is. Learning how much God wants to speak to His people in worship has changed the way I lead and my lifestyle as a worshiper.”

Kendra Duffield – Jacksonville, FL., Class of ‘03

“Whatever life throws at you – good or bad – I learned to put those things to the side and just come before God and worship Him, because He is good all the time and He is always worthy of our praise.”

David Ledger
“I can honestly say that this nine-month program has been the most inspiring, thought-provoking, and enjoyable period of my life. Over this time I’ve developed a more intimate relationship with the living God, I’ve experienced the life changing power of the Holy Spirit and I’ve grown in my giftings.”

David Ledger – Taunton, England, Class of ‘03

Kaitlyn Shleif
“Musically, the School of Worship pushed me to grow in areas that I thought where out of my reach. I felt myself being stretched and challenged to hear things I never could before, try things out of my comfort zone and flow musically well in the Spirit.”
