ASCEND SCHOOL OF WORSHIP (SOW)
Encountering and releasing God's transforming presence
I’ve made up my mind.
Until the darkness disappears and the dawn has fully come,
in spite of shadows and fears,
I will go to the mountaintop with you—
the mountain of suffering love
and the hill of burning incense.
Yes, I will be your bride.
-Song of Songs 4:6
Our aim in running this Ascend School of Worship is to see young worship leaders boldly lead people into a greater revelation of God’s character and nature, to spontaneously sing the prophetic songs on God’s heart and to ignite fires of revival whenever God has called them.
As worship leaders we are called to encounter and release God's transforming presence.
God has called us as YWAM Bridges of Life to be a community comitted to Worship and Prayer unto Revival in France and the Nations
The Ascend SOW includes a 12-week Lecture Phase with a different topic each week. This course will include Lecture Topics such as:
Intimacy With God
Heart of a Worshipper
The Biblical Basis for Worship
Worship and the Prophetic
Creativity in Worship
Tabernacle of David
The Ministry of Worship
Throughout the lecture phase, you’ll spend time in class, listening to teaching, worshipping, praying, reading the Bible, serving each other, participating in weekly outreach, and sharing in one-on-one times with a staff member.
Outreach is the second 8 to 12 week phase of your Ascend SOW and will take place in different countries in the world. Some places we as YWAM Bridges of Life have sent teams to in the past are different cities in France (Paris, Montpellier, Nantes, Lyon, Marseille), Kosovo, Togo, French Polynesia, Thailand, India, Nepal, and Cambodia. The Outreach is where you get to expand your horizons and put into practice all God has been teaching you during the lecture phase.
Outreach activities could include leading worship at churches, hosting prayer/worship burns, creative evangelism, teaching, prophesying and reaching out to present Jesus in a variety of other creative, apostolic ways.
