About Concentration

If you are interested in training others in worship, this concentration will grant you a certificate in teaching. Explore biblical examples of worship, get cross-training in musical disciplines, biblical training, leadership development, all flowing with a prophetic spirit. You will learn team-building skills and practical elements of worship ministry to serve the global worship movement wherever God sends you.

“With the skills I’ve learned in my concentration in teaching, combined with the hands-on experience I’ve gained from my praxis in Brazil, I feel equipped to take what I’ve learned to the nations. The ability to teach music is a door to administering the gospel to the lost, as well as a door to planting houses of prayer in all parts of the earth- and I plan to use what I’ve gained from studying at IHOPU for the last four years to do both, starting in the nation of Bolivia.“
