OM Arts Children’s Music Songwriting Workshop

The goal is to write original worship songs in Albanian that can be used with children. A secondary goal is to empower the local participants in songwriting workshop principles so that they are equipped to lead workshops on their own.

The team will partner with those in country to facilitate a songwriting workshop to create children’s music. The songs will be used for worship and children’s meetings. This project is a continuation of a workshop conducted last year.

Ministry details

Worship that is culturally appropriate has the power to break down unnecessary barriers as people respond to the revelation of God. Targeting children will, hopefully, benefit whole families as we train up the next generation in the worship of God.

“Ethnodoxologists study how peoples around the world worship God and encourage them to create in response to God’s work in their lives” (Robin Harris, ethnodoxologist). As a team, participants will lead attendees in a songwriting workshop using key principles of ethnodoxology as a guide. The focus will be children’s music. Subsequently, the team will record these songs to make ready for distribution.

Participant profile

Ethnodoxologist: Applicant should have experience leading indigenous songwriting workshops and be able to mentor others. Theologian: Applicant should have training in worship theology and experience instructing in a cross-cultural setting. The applicant will need to help songwriting participants identify appropriate Scripture to set to song and bring them deeper into the passage.
