Worship and Music

Our team works to build relationships with South Carolina Baptist worship leaders and music ministers while developing resources to advance worship in their local gatherings.

Worship Cohorts

Worship Advance Cohorts are regionally based discipleship collectives for worship leaders. Each cohort will rally around 5 key values:  Growth and Development, One Another Discipleship, Fellowship, Pastoral Care, and Networking.

Whether you are a volunteer leader at a church plant or full-time on staff at a multi-site megachurch, Worship Advance Cohorts are open to worship leaders. There is no cost to join a cohort.

Worship Leader Roundtables

Would you like an opportunity to host an event aimed at connecting worship leaders in your area? This is a discussion-based networking and training event for helping worship leaders of all varieties establish relationships with other area worship ministry leaders, engage in conversation around topics related to best practices and worship in the local church, connect with the Worship and Music Office, and hopefully refresh a bit as we will spend time in worship and prayer together. Our goal is to meet in regional areas throughout the year.
