Master Class coaching and development for worship leaders
Investing In Worship is a program designed to strengthen the partnership of ministry between a pastor and a worship leader. Over four five-day courses across an academic year, Andy Piercy will work with your worship leader to increase their understanding of worship within a wider theological and liturgical context. Through small group interactive sessions with peer-to-peer review alongside highly applicable theological teaching from renowned experts, your worship leader will learn to love the congregation with a shepherd’s heart and a servant’s attitude while at the same time developing high quality worship
What We Will Do…
- Interactive review and practical skill development in a master class setting
- Teaching from theological experts
- Appraisal and critique with personalized feedback
- ‘Learn and do’ model with students expected to put training into practice in own church setting between study weeks

What Andy brought to my leadership and my relationship with our worship leader was a heart, a vocabulary, a joy and a passion for worship that we shared together. Once we took that step together, the growth and power of our corporate worship along with the growth of our worship teams was both contagious and amazing.

The School of Worship has had a significant impact in the life of our church. We’ve had two of our leaders attend. Both have come back energized, with fresh ideas, increased confidence and greater spiritual authority. Our worship has improved and these leaders are more a part of what makes us unique as a church than they ever have been. They have exhibited fantastic spiritual growth, a willingness to push through personal limitations with great humility for the sake of glorifying God and leading his people into a more intimate union with their Creator. It is obvious that they’ve not just learned the skills of leading worship, but have received a deep theology that impacts why they do what they do, and how best to deliver that to the rest of us. Thank you for the work you are doing. Keep it up.
…somebody asked me where I had just been as my leading style was so different than the previous time…
…it has given me so much more confidence.
Felt a lot more engagement in the singing from the congregation after using what I learnt on the course…
…the wisdom and practical instruction that you’ve given has reinvented me as a worship leader…and as a worshipper. I came looking for a framework of fundamentals that would help bring structure to what I had only been doing by intuition as a worship leader and a team leader. You have more than delivered…you’ve been teaching me a new mindset that is reproducible and will no doubt be the model I use to train up and disciple worship leaders from now on.
…the theological teachings have done more to renew the way I approach my faith overall than just the way I approach leading worship. It’s taken me on a journey from living from a minister’s mindset to a disciple’s mindset… It’s the move from behaving like an executive/manager to behaving like a student of Jesus.
The course has been a great blend of theological and practical training. The practical sessions are comprehensive and challenging. Andy is a treasure of practical knowledge of the nuts and bolts of leading worship and a gifted communicator of the ‘how’ piece of the puzzle.
I was able to immediately refine my planning strategy, putting into practice many of the things we discussed…and received comments along the lines of how the service spoke to mind, body, and soul; similar to the 3 dimensions of worship in our teaching…
