9:00–2:30 Workshop with Dwayne & Juan (lunch provided)
NOTE: Leaders will eat lunch with Juan & Dwayne to Q&A about how to form and build a praise band.

3:00–6:30 Band Contest & Coaching

  • Becoming Ministers through Music
  • Leading Worship Both On and Off Stage
  • Essentials Qualities and Goals When Leading Worship
  • Going Deep with God and Staying Faithful Where He Plants You


During this fun and interactive workshop, students will have the opportunity to interact with other praise bands and artists. Students will see first hand what a true heart of worship looks like.

After the powerful time of teaching and small group interaction, the day will cap off with a band contest and coaching time. Bands must pre-qualify to get to play. But even if your group doesn’t actually play, they will still want to watch and learn as the panel of coaches gives their helpful feedback to each competing band.

This is one day you don’t want to miss! Students will leave fired up, heart-focused and ready to minister!
