The mission of the School of Worship is to train and equip worship leaders in order to release them to lead effective ministries in the Church. This track is ideal for those who know they have a calling to lead worship and/or lead a worship ministry. The Worship Track is outsourced through the 4:12 Collective School of Worship. 4:12 Collective is a non-profit worship ministry in Northeast Ohio that strives to bring about unity in the local church while bringing people together to collectively pursue Jesus in worship.
Track Leader: Pastor Austin and Sarah Mast
Austin serves as the Pastor of Equipping and Worship at Grace Church. He also is a co-founder of 4:12 Collective, a worship ministry in Northeast Ohio. He received a B.S. in Theological and Biblical Studies from Liberty University and is currently pursuing his MDiv at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His passion is to help others find their God given gifts and help them walk them out for the Kingdom.
It is our desire to model the life of Jesus and his ministry. Within his ministry, we see Jesus had 12 disciples. These disciples were deeply committed to the ministry together. As they did ministry together, they also did life together as they followed Jesus. This kind of commitment is what we desire to see in students.
It is in our Weekly Gatherings we desire to foster this kind of model set by Jesus. Students will gather on Tuesday evenings to pray and worship together, talk through spiritually forming topics, topics related specifically to their track, and to fellowship together.
Along with Weekly Gatherings come weekly assignments and readings to help supplement what is being discussed.
Students are expected to be plugged into a local church and serving in some capacity. This looks different depending on the track you are in. For Worship Track students, students are expected to be leading worship at least once per month.
It is not only important to make disciples, but also to be discipled. Students will be paired up with someone in the church (if not already being discipled), and will meet consistently with this person for mentorship and discipleship.
On the first Wednesday night of each month, all tracks will come together at Grace Church (Berlin Campus) for a worship night. There is no expectation to serve (unless asked). This is an opportunity for students to be filled and worship together.
Music Lessons (Worship Track only)
Worship Track students are expected to pursue training in at least one instrument. Students will take weekly 1 hour lessons at Off the Wall Music in New Philadelphia, Ohio.
4:12 Collective Worship Nights (Worship Track only)
Worship Track students are expected to attend monthly 4:12 Collective Worship events.
