Honoring God Through Our Music and Worship

The world tells us that if we don't feel something during worship, then the worship wasn't good. Here at YWAM Louisville we know that worship isn't just a feeling, but a heart positioned fully towards the Lord. When we gather to worship, we remind one another of the truth of who He is as we sing (or shout!) it out.


Dive Deep into Worship

The YWAM Music & Worship DTS Elective adds an emphasis to your regular DTS training. This emphasis focuses on honoring God with your musical gifts, building in regular opportunities to hone your skills, working together in teams, and learning about leading others in worship. Spend the first twelve weeks of your DTS learning more about what true worship is.

Real ministry is the overflow of personal relationship with Jesus. Find you voice and your sound while going deeper in our Music & Worship Elective. 

Topics Include: 

  • Music Theory
  • Songwriting
