SSC Worship Academy

Cultivating A Generation Worshippers – Psalm 145:3-4

SSC Worship Academy exists to train young artists, cultivating a generation of worshippers who minister for Jesus Christ. Your child will have the opportunity to learn foundational worship concepts while also receiving instruction in the arts from an expert artist! We offer training in music theory, band, vocals, and dance. Young artists will learn how to work as a team and create an evening of corporate worship based on the worship concepts they will discover.

Worship Academy begins in October and runs until the end of April with a general session for all students and parents at 7pm at SSC in the sanctuary.
