For Churches

Let us equip your church for expressive and creative worship that effectively facilitates an encounter with God. We've lead worship together for years for local and international worship services, and are each eager to share what we've learned through an immersive workshop at your church.

Thinking Musicians was born out of a desire to help musicians with a thirst for growth in their spiritual walk and technical skills, both individually and as local worship teams. Our philosophy is based on God's continual call to believers in his word to draw near to him, grow in him, and use the gifts he has given us to build his kingdom. We seek to equip musicians in both private and public worship to grow in their skill as musicians and in their spiritual walk with God to increase in drawing near to the Father and building his kingdom.

After the initial contact, we will get in touch with you about your specific situation and goals for your worship team. When we arrive at your church, prepared with a knowledge of your goals, we will share our story, have a Q & A and share the thinking musician mindset and how it relates to your specific goals individually and as a team. Next, we'll have an interactive band workshop, discussing the marriage between technical excellence and spiritual discernment in facilitating an encounter with God. Finally, we'll demonstrate how the thinking musician philosophy has helped us grow as worship musicians by worshiping the Lord with your team!
