Kolaiah Productions
Kolaiah School of Worship
A school designed for those
who want to lead worship.

This school is set up as a 16-week accelerated class session where the student will learn about the mechanics of music… by notation as well as by ear, the theology of worship and how it relates to music, and how the two combine to become worship music.  The student will interact with others, learn from guest speakers, and receive materials well worth the cost of the classes.

The Kolaiah School of Worship transcends the preconceptions of any denomination and simply teaches straight from the Holy Scriptures using various translations to help understand God’s intent regarding the worship of Himself.

Our Statement of Faith can be found and read here on our website.  However, the School of Worship teaches simply that Christ Jesus is the Savior, the Healer, the Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, and the Soon Coming King.

CORE Theology Classes

Bible Overview (and how it relates to worship)
This class discovers what the Old and New Testaments have to say regarding worship.  Scriptural references that deal with leadership will also be taught as how they affect the worship leader and worship team.

Exploration of Worship
This class focuses on Scripture and how it relates to the following points:

  • Worship IS service (serving) the leader must be a servant
  • Power in praise and worship and declaration
  • The worshipper & how we should grow more hungry for God as we mature
  • Character, Stewardship and Servanthood

Evangelism & Exhortation
This class examines the life of a worshipper and discover how worship is the best form of evangelism.  Sometimes the church needs to hear prophetic words and sometimes those words might sting a bit.  This class will also examine how the prophet speaks to the church.

Edification & Exaltation
This class examines how to use one’s gift to edify the church and also to see how healing comes through music.  This class also examines the pure ministry of ministering to the Lord our God.  While worship does minister to the body of Christ… we must also minister to Him.

This class examines scripture as it relates to the leadership role.  Much of this curriculum speaks about the role of the pastor/elder/deacon but it all relates to the leadership of all things involving the Body of Christ.
