To know God and to make him known

songwriting/scripture dts

Application now opens for 2024

The heart behind the Songwriting & Scripture DTS is to explore the power of the scripture in songwriting and the spoken word. The scripture has inspired millions of believers around the world for generations to write Spirit-filled poems and songs that continue to inspire believers around the world. The goal of the school is to awaken creative abilities in individual callings and spiritual gifts. Through the power of the Spirit, many will be able to find their true potential and shine the light God places in them long before they were created. Just as God called and anointed Bezalel with gifts of creative art and design (Exodus 30:1-6), many whose gifts have been lying dormant will find their purpose again and bring glory to the Father. Come join us on this great adventure of a lifetime!
