Learn to Lead Through Song in the
James River Church holds prayer and worship as one of its core values. Through the Worship Practicum you are able to experience operating within a worship ministry at one of largest churches in the United States. Here you have worship opportunities in a variety of venues and learn not just how to play music, but how to truly lead in worship on and off stage.
Work Directly with the Worship Director of James River Church
Not only are students able to work with the worship team, but they are mentored by the director of our worship ministry who pours into each student. Our prayer is for every student to realize their full-potential individually and capitalize on their own talents.
“Being a worship leader is more than just singing a song on stage, it is about leading people into the presence of God.”
Courtney Sneed talks about the things she has learned and the opportunities she has received in the Worship Practicum.
Play in Weekly Services and Chapels
Through the Worship Practicum, students have the potential to lead worship in front of thousands. Students have numerous opportunities to be rostered on the worship team at weekly services and events. Also, our chapel worship is entirely produced by our students.
Understand Audio Engineering and Recording
Our students are exposed to more than just playing music, they learn all the logistics involved in audio production for live events and recorded tracks.
