Plato once said, "Give me the songs of a generation and I'll change the way that generation thinks!" As Disciples of Worship, we believe this is true of creative arts on the whole. We long to see a body of worshippers that understand and operate in the fullness of this for the sake of His Kingdom covering the earth. Partnering with Sounds of the Nations we have the priveledge to release these online courses and be a part of a community of lead worshippers & world changers from around the world as we experience cities, regions, & nations transformed by God's Presence as we learn to host Him wherever we go. These courses are designed to not just be for knowlege but experiential knowledge and learn by doing. You will have assignements to apply things into your lifestyle throughout the courses in practical ways to learn to be a carrier of God's Presence.
Course 1 - God Vibrations
This course explores the scientific and supernatural impact of sound on every level of human consciousness as well as the physical and spiritual universe around us. This course brings insight and a fresh Biblical perspective to our understanding of sound around us as well as the sound and song we have inside us. We want to impact the environment around us with understanding how God created the gift of music He has given us.
