School of Worship

Releasing a new sound to the nations.

The School of Worship at YWAM Tyler is centered on Psalm 96:3 and Psalm 33:3. The SOW is about communication, leadership, biblical depth, excellence, and security. Additionally, we focus on the greatness, victory, and beauty of Yahweh; respond appropriately to Him; and learn to communicate His presence effectively. We concentrate on the musical aspect more than on other facets of individual and corporate worship; however, it is not a music school.

The goal for an SOW student is to be:

– Trained in leadership and excellence
– Equipped with inner security and strength, personally and in ministry
– Growing in their communication skills
– Discipled in biblical understanding and application of missional worship
