This project has two goals. First, a goal is to train Youth with a Mission (YWAM) staff members in foundational concepts in worship and arts and equip them with arts and trauma healing principles. Second, a goal is to do an ethnoarts workshop with rural pastors without easy access to training resources.
As an OM Arts team, participants will facilitate two workshops to encourage cultural expressions of worship. During the first workshop, the team will provide five days of training in three areas: foundational concepts in worship, arts, and culture, principles of ethnoarts in worship, Bible stories, and community development, and arts and trauma healing principles. Then, the team will travel to a new location to facilitate a three-day ethnoarts workshop, facilitating the creation of culturally-relevant, biblically-accurate expressions of worship.
