Pure Worship Institute Ends on the Right Note

Date: June 28, 2011 - 10:18am

Minneapolis, MN – North Central University had the distinct pleasure of hosting the Pure Worship Institute (PWI), June 19-24, 2011.

Over 120 students attended this year’s event that included seminars, workshops, jam sessions, and listening panels led by North Central Fine Arts Faculty members, and many skilled professionals.

The Pure Worship institute works to train the next generation of professional musicians and singers through teaching, modeling, mentoring, and building. Founded by Jeff Deyo, nationally recognized worship leader, recording artist, original member of SONICFLOOd, and Worship Arts Specialist at NCU, PWI teaches their students: how to worship with an instrument, what God requires of singers and musicians, how to use the latest technology, and methods to writing and arranging songs.

"PWI 2011 was truly off the charts! God's hand of love and favor on our students, instructors, worship leaders, and speakers was incredible as always. The softening and turn of hearts to Jesus was the stuff of dreams, as we observed miracle after miracle happening in everyone's lives," Deyo said as PWI was concluding on Friday.

As part of PWI was a nightly worship event called Pure Worship Encounters (PWE). Each night of PWE was led by recognized artists: Desperation Band, Marco Barrientos, Jonathan Lee, Brian and Ramey Whalen. The week long event concluded with a concert by Jeff Deyo and his band.
