The School of Worship is designed for students who have a desire to be involved in worship ministry. The School of Worship courses will prepare students for musicianship, leadership, and spiritual awareness that is necessary for effective worship ministry.  Students desiring to be worship leaders, vocalists, band members, or volunteers at church, will receive the best training available at this stage in life. We currently offer three levels of Worship Bands at various levels, a Worship Leadership Class, and a Songwriting Class.

Those who have a musical gift and a heart that longs to worship are highly encouraged to register for classes in the School of Worship.  For detailed information on class descriptions, auditions, or evaluations for class entry click the link below.

Being a part of the praise bands at TAFA has not only allowed my daughters to grow and develop musically, it has given them a fresh passion for the Lord in a way no other ministry has done for them.

My son learned the dynamics of working together as a group with other vocalist and instrumentalists, but there is so, so much more. Those teams, under the guidance of Sarah Shannon and Joey Giesel, learn what it means to lift each other up in prayer, to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit, and encourage one another. 

TAFA has provided invaluable lessons and experiences to our son thru the Praise and Worship ministry classes. Sarah Shannon and Joey Geisel are both godly, excellent teachers who represent Jesus Christ in all of their teaching opportunities.

The most personal and real worship experience I've found. Every rehearsal is always a highlight of my week and the worship nights are amazing- the spirit is always there.

The experience in song writing under the encouraging training of Mr. Hill helped unleash my daughter's inhibitions about expressing her heart for God through lyric and song.  Years later, she is flourishing as a song writer and continues to build on the many skills she learned in this class.

The Worship Band classes offered prayer for one another, bearing one another's burdens, and a focus on the Lord as well as excellent worship band training. 

Because of the excellent music training, spiritual accountability and excellence, both of my girls are continuing in this ministry in our church. My youngest plans to pursue a degree in Ministry and Worship Music!! Worth every ounce of time and effort!! Sign up!!
