Worship and Music

Worship & 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 Advance Cohorts

Worship Advance Cohorts are regionally based discipleship collectives for worship leaders. Each cohort will journey together for 6-8 months by experiencing monthly in-person/online meetings, regular triad conversations, and a guided curriculum for growth and development to be completed in between group activities. Informed by some of the brightest minds in worship leadership from across the globe like Tim Keller, Aaron Keyes, Eugene Peterson, and Bob Kauflin, Season 1 will be focused on the spiritual and character formation of the worship leader. Topics to be addressed include: leadership, identity, calling, spiritual disciplines, personal/family health, gospel fluency, bible reading, and songwriting.

Worship Advance Cohorts are open to worship leaders of all walks, whether you are volunteer leader at a church plant or full-time on staff at a multi-site megachurch. Season 1 will begin in April 2021. There is no cost to join a cohort (participants will be asked to purchase a few resources for personal use). Space is limited to twelve leaders per region on a first come, first served basis.

Worship Leader Roundtables

A discussion-based networking and training event aimed at 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.

We resume Roundtable meetings in the Spring. Let us know if you want to host one.
