And Jesus said,
"A time is coming and has now come when the
true worshipers will worship the Father
in spirit and in truth."
- John 4:23
Calling all worship leaders, worship teams, musicians, songwriters, and church leaders, for a life-changing prophetic worship intensive! This 5 day training is for those who want to take their worship to the next level and see powerful breakthroughs with the people they lead. This is a school for those who long to be part of the revival that is breaking out—a revival that doesn’t depend on talent, money, technology, or a big band, but rather on the power of God touching yielded hearts.
We’re diving deep into the issues of spirit and truth, power and theology, prophetic and character. In this time, we will be flipping our understanding of worship, music, and the prophetic completely inside out, starting over from the beginning. We'll be talking about the PRACTICAL issues of how to lead powerful worship in small churches or groups with limited budgets and small bands (or no bands at all), which is the real-life scenario for most worship musicians and churches. This is going to be practical and real. We want to equip you with tools to see powerful things happen in your churches and ministries. And finally, we will be spending time worshiping together, which will be refreshing for all of you who usually have to lead!

Perhaps her greatest joy, Margie is a mother and grandmother, and she also has become a spiritual mother to many people around the world.
