Five Varieties of Worship Leader Boot Camps now offered
What is a Worship Leader Boot Camp?
Thousands have been trained internationally through Worship Leader Boot Camps
Worship Leader Boot Camp BASIC
This option is great for everyone on the worship team to come and catch the vision for renewed worship in your church. This Boot Camp covers the material in an 8-hour conference on a Saturday. Corporate worship times are led with virtual worship bands and tracks rather than a full band experience.
Dates: June 30 (WEST – First Baptist Church, Hickory, NC)
November 17 (EAST – Raleigh Road Baptist Church, Wilson, NC)
Cost: $25-35 depending upon time of registration
Worship Leader Boot Camp PLUS
This option covers the same core material, plus there is a full band to lead more extended times of corporate worship. Due to the added worship times, this one begins on a Friday night and runs through Saturday morning and afternoon. Provides a great experience for your entire team.
Dates: April 20-21 (Central NC -Friendly Avenue Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC)

Worship Leader Boot Camp EXTREME
As our Worship Leader Boot Camp covers a great amount of material, many have expressed a desire to go deeper in making direct application to their lives and ministries. Worship Leader Boot Camp: EXTREME begins with the Worship Leader Boot Camp material, combines strong elements of a new training, A Week in the Life of a Worship Leader (new addition to the EXTREME event), and then focuses on practically working through the concepts.
Focus areas include:
- Exploring biblical, missional, cultural and discipleship issues and how they relate specifically to local church settings.
- Planning worship services that engage the congregation
- Planning sets of music and their connections (key and textual relationships)
- Modeling a worship arts team for worship planning
- Preparing the choir, instrumentalists, band, etc. for worship
- Preparing media for worship
- Preparing the congregation for worship
- Preparing personally for worship
- Leading the worship experience
Participants are limited to a small group (no more than 12), which allows for more individualized attention. The event is hosted in various locations and runs Thursday lunch through Saturday afternoon.
The hands-on approach to worship and its dynamics, involving music sets, order of services, proper key changes, congregational arrangements, worship styles, among many other worthy topics, made a difference in the way I lead worship at my church today. I was also challenged spiritually to be open to the Lord and to live worship not just lead worship. I would recommend this retreat to any worship leader who is serious in making a difference in their personal worship and is open to the Lord’s leading in corporate worship.

Worship Leader Boot Camp ONLINE
A self-paced, fully online version of the Worship Leader Boot Camp is now live. This course includes 29 videos with 6.5 hours of instruction recorded at a recent Boot Camp. One should expect to spend a minimum of 10 hours with this class. While this lacks the excitement and inspiration of gathering with people in a live event, it does cover the material thoroughly on your timetable. You can take time to digest the material in a slower fashion than the live event. There is no contact with the instructor in this course.
Cost: $30 (discounts available to our NC Baptist churches)
Worship Leader Boot Camp
This takes all the material described above for the Worship Leader Boot Camp EXTREME and expands it to a 12-week online class with weekly video class meetings. A small group selected to participate in these classes will work through online video teaching, resources, projects, forums, etc. to learn the material thoroughly. The group will meet each week with the instructor in a video conference to discuss the material. Additionally, there is much interaction online with the instructor and classmates. Two weeks are devoted to completing a final project for the class. Participants must be committed to the entire 12 weeks. This class is limited to NC Baptists unless openings are available a week before the class begins.
Successful completion of this class grants college credit towards any degree at Fruitland Baptist Bible College. Also, all who complete the course satisfactorily will be granted a Basic Certificate in Worship Leadership by Fruitland Baptist Bible College.
Dates: May 21 – August 13, 2018
