You are the light of the world, made to shine in dark places. When you encounter God, His Spirit will ignite you from the inside out. When we gather in His presence to worship, He shows up to transform our lives and light up every shadow. God has called us to the ends of the earth, and with Him, we can light it up.
Brian Johnson shares on the power of worship school
Bethel Music Worship School, formerly known as WorshipU On Campus, is for worship leaders, songwriters, musicians, and creatives. The world is ready for an awakening, and our mission is to equip you to see revival in your family, your city, your church, and your nation. Now is the time to arise and shine.
Why come to BMWS?
Come and learn what it means to be fully alive in your identity in Christ, and grow in a deeper understanding of who you are in Him. The world needs what you have, and we would love to know you too.
God inhabits the praises of His people. When we worship, the Presence of God invades impossible circumstances. As we encounter His face and magnify His name, we become more like Him, and the more like Him we become, the more we each step into who He designed us to be. Come expectant to see God move in ways you’ve never seen before. We’re ready for it!
We’re inviting people of every background to gather with us to connect, grow and be inspired by other creatives and worshippers from around the world. Let’s hang out and go after it.
You were created to express the image of God to the world around you. There is an immeasurable amount of possibility available to you when you partner with God. Come ready to explore the songs, stories, sound, and message He has placed inside of you.
