Minneapolis, MN – For the second consecutive year North Central University is proud to announce that it will be hosting the Pure Worship Institute (PWI), June 19-24, 2011.

The Pure Worship Institute is a weeklong intensive “mini university” with seminars, workshops, jam sessions, listening panels, and worship encounters. This revolutionary new “school” for bands, singers, musicians, and worshipers integrates a healthy balance of spiritual and practical teaching in order to train up this generation to love Jesus with their skills and with their lives.

PWI was founded by Jeff Deyo, nationally recognized worship leader, recording artist, original member of SONICFLOOd, and Worship Arts Specialist at NCU. His vision is to see every musician, singer, worship leader, and band member understand and willingly embrace God’s higher purpose for them as influencers in His Kingdom by living, playing, and singing as skilled, passionate, humble, Spirit-led arrows in His Hand.

The institute works to train the next generation of professional musicians and singers through teaching, modeling, mentoring, and building. It seeks to cultivate in its participants’ hearts an understanding of the enormous responsibility they possess – first as Christians and secondly as those who will influence and shape modern culture through their music and creativity.

PWI students will learn how to worship with an instrument, what God requires of singers and musicians, and how to war for souls through music. Students will also learn how to use the latest technology, how to write and arrange songs that will stir the heart of a generation, how to better their technique, and how to plan a worship “set” while still allowing the Holy Spirit to lead.

Registration is only $275 between now and May 10th and $325 after that. Optional lodging and meals are available for an additional $200 ($275 double room).

Those who are unable to attend the full week but would like to attend certain days of PWI have the option of attending individual days for only $65 per day.
