“I so appreciate Dwayne’s heart to take worship leading to a deeper level than performing and song selecting, but to bring us to focus on the root of biblical worship- giving our God the praise he is due!”

Laura Story, Grammy Award-winning artist and author




“Dwayne Moore has a desire to see the body of Christ truly understand what it means to honor God with our worship and let our lifesongs sing to God in spirit and in truth.”

Mark Hall, lead singer for Casting Crowns



“Dwayne Moore is one of the top worship leaders on the planet.”

Dr. Jay Strack, founder of Student Leadership University in Orlando, FL



“If you’re looking for a way to grow in your knowledge of what it means to be a worship leader, to be challenged to take your ministry to the next level, and to connect with other worship leaders who are on the same journey as you, I would highly recommend Dwayne’s coaching opportunities.”  – Barry Westman



“Taking Dwayne’s worship leaders course was far more than practical study for me. I have never experienced more spiritual nurturing and growth in such a short time. I was blessed with prayerfully planned topics in every session, praying together with God’s children and a teacher yielding to the Holy Spirit and humble enough to accept different ideas from fellow worshipers.” – Kris LeDonne, worship leader



“If you feel like God has left the building, your life, or both, hold that thought. Because Dwayne Moore is going to teach you how God wants to saturate every nook and cranny, every nano-second of your existence.”

Sally Morgenthaler, author of Worship Evangelism



“Dwayne has enthusiasm and a desire to train others—and he has lots of knowledge!” – Robert Grafton, worship leader

“I started this class on the verge of burn-out, frustrated and tired. But Dwayne has given me the tools to start again. I’m refreshed and equipped to do the work the Lord has called me to do.” – Karelin James, worship leader

“I have grown so much…I want all our team members to take this course!” – Eleanor Sheilds, worship leader
