The School of David is a 3-week program geared towards releasing and unlocking Creative Arts and Worship.
During these three weeks, you will be immersed in God’s presence in a way you’ve never before experienced.
Our heart as a ministry is to see and equip the sons and daughters of God to arise and impact culture with a transforming message.
We know that God is wanting to transform many areas of our society through creative arts, and our heart is to see the talents and gifts that He has placed inside of you released. We want to dream together and speak life into your destiny so that through your giftings, we can see the generations impacted.
During the three weeks, we will stay in a place by the beach where we will be inspired by the greatness of God! We will also be blessed to live together in community as one family, encouraging and building one another up.
God has placed this dream in our hearts, and we feel strongly that from the School of David, the next generation of worshipers will arise; the ones who will worship in spirit and in truth! The next successful musicians, the next great writers, the best film directors, and the most incredibly creative people this society needs. The world is crying out for God’s children to stand up and be who God created them to be, and we dream to make this a reality. To see the sons and daughters arise who will fully combine their talents with the greatest weapon of all, which is love, will bring an everlasting transformation to this world.

IMPORTANT!!! Before starting to fill out your form, make a 3 – 5 minute video telling us why you want to be part of this school: sharing and showing us some of your abilities (musical, artistic, portfolio, etc). The video will need to be uploaded to YouTube, and as you fill out the form, we will ask you to send us the video’s link. It’s important that you understand that the School of David is focused primarily on people specifically with the heart of an artist (musical, artistic, etc). This doesn’t mean that you have to be a professional, but we ask that you at least have an idea of what gifts God has given you to serve the world and that you want to grow in. Thank you!

“Jesus didn’t die on the cross so that we could sing good songs in church services. He died on the cross so that we could live lifestyles of worship, lifestyles that bring His presence wherever we go.”

More speakers to be confirmed…
The School of David is structured into three sections: Identity, Purpose, and Practical Missions. During this time we will spend three weeks speaking and teaching about these sections respectively, all through a focus on arts and creative worship. We believe all the teachings our students need are based on three key principles: Love God – Love People – Change the World.
In this school, we will have specific training in how to release our talents through living in an environment of constant worship. We are all a family, and our heart is to see us learn from our brothers and sisters to greatly influence the way we praise our Father!
We will also have a mentoring program. Each student will have a mentor to follow his or her progress on the project that will be completed during the school.
