Ascend Worship School



Ascend is a 9-month tuition based worship school with the purpose of training up worship leaders to serve in their local church.  Class instruction will provide a solid biblical foundation, while offering practical teaching of musicianship and technical skills. 
Psalm 24:3 asks the question, "Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place?”  
The answer is found the subsequent verses, "He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully.  He shall receive blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.  This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face.
At Ascend, we have a vision of equipping lovers of God to serve His church through the creativity He has placed within each of us.  We hope you will prayerfully consider joining us as we begin this new exciting ministry.


 Ascend exists with the primary goal of training and discipling those called to minister through music and the media arts.  Our purpose is to better equip worship leaders, musicians, and media team members with the tools needed to effectively serve in their local church.
