We have a passion for modern worship, but we want to hear what this means for your church and community.  As a result, our first commitment is to listen to what it is you want modern worship to be in your church.  Modern worship contains many styles and means of expression and we want to hear what your congregation’s voice sounds like.


We take what you have given us in terms of your vision and voice, and we use our expertise in worship ministry  to research music, resources, equipment, and training needs to put together an effect plan for your teams.


We bring back to you and your leadership teams the results of our research to help with your modern worship service launch.  We present these results and further discuss and refine the plan so that it works for you.
