Macon School of Worship

FREE weekend intensive for worship leaders and musicians.

January 19-21, 2018

Our vision is to see the name of Jesus be lifted high in the city of Macon, GA and throughout the whole Earth.

We believe that the Spirit of God is issuing a call to worshipers all over the earth to lead a generation into the glory and presence of God! His presence in the hardest and darkest places will accomplish exceedingly more than our best earthly efforts. We believe worshipers are being called to more than just a Sunday and Wednesday service experience, but to release the heart of God over our cities and even unto the nations of the earth. This is our first ever School of Worship open to the public. As our first one, God has spoken clearly to give this as a first fruits offering to Him. That means that this School of Worship will be free to all!

Led by worship leaders and musicians from across our city.

LeAnn Nichols

LeAnn Nichols

Christ Chapel Macon

LeAnn Nichols has a total of sixteen years of worship leading experience. Ten of those years was spent leading worship at Christ Chapel in Macon, Ga, where she led a band and vocal team of 7-15 people. She also mentored worship leaders from other CC campuses. LeAnn received three years of music education at Western Michigan University. During her worship experience, she has recorded two albums. LeAnn is married to local entrepreneur, Brian Nichols, and together they have 4 children. More recently, God has called her to share her time with others in service, as a volunteer and a co-laborer in the family businesses. “But,” she confesses, “the love of worship to Almighty God will always continue.” LeAnn believes that authentic worship highlights truth. When we surrender ourselves in worship, whether in song, word, or action, the Holy Spirit reveals God in a way that overshadows the world and God’s glory is seen. There is nothing like those moments. LeAnn further shares that worship brings honesty, transparency, freedom, and joy. God’s heart is so pleased.

It is her desire that the Father would find true worshippers from the heart and not just talented musicians. She believes that when worship leaders connect to the Lord apart from performance and striving in their own strength, it creates a safe place for the Body to follow.

Trevor Ward

Trevor Ward

Mulberry United Methodist

Trevor Ward has been involved with worship from a young age starting with church choirs and Christmas programs. In his mid-teens, he really began pursuing various avenues of worship. His first experience leading worship was for a large youth group at Real Life Church in Macon, Ga. Since then, Trevor’s experience with worship has been far and wide. He has gained rich insight from the many different types of worship teams with which he has been involved. However, he admits that worshipping in a prayer room is his favorite. It is in this setting that he has experienced his most intimate moments with the Holy Spirit. He believes that those times are heavily reflective of King David’s worship style, and offer times of meditation and development of an inner prayer life. This is important to him because he knows that worship can usher God’s presence into a room because He responds to us as we respond to Him. Trevor shares that worship is simply an outward expression of an inward world. Trevor is currently youth and worship leader for Mulberry United Methodist Church in downtown Macon and has wedding plans for mid-December.
