Purpose & Vision

The Minnesota Worship Arts Department exists to support the Assemblies of God worship arts leaders, churches, and events.

We want Minnesota Worship Arts Leaders (Music, Tech/Media, Drama, Dance, etc.) to connect and be equipped to strengthen our congregations and touch our communities!


Music 360 Method

Music 360 Method is our go-to recommendation for mentoring and training musicians. This is a professional quality video-based curriculum for drums, bass, guitars, keys, and vocals. A key feature is the built-in administrative piece, allowing leaders to communicate with and track team members. It is subscription-based with an annual or monthly payment option. It is pennies on the dollar when considering the cost of lessons.

We also love that they give back 10% towards our district Worship Arts annual budget. Below is a link to their site and a link to view sample lessons.
