There is the intimate side of worshiping God through movement for the joy of it and to express love to Him.
And there is the more public side of leading others in worship and dancing in ministry, using the art of dance to to bring God’s message to people.
For the first aspect of worship dance, training is not necessary. It can enhance our joy in worshiping Jesus, but anyone can worship, regardless of their training. God gave us all bodies and He is pleased when we use them to express our love and commitment to Him.
For the second aspect of worship dance, training is important. It enables us to better communicate God’s word. It allows us to hold the attention of those to whom we hope to minister so that they can receive the message we have. And it gives us credibility which opens the door to serve.
Today I want to share about a very valuable way to get training, to grow more skillful in the art of dance, more knowledgeable in the bible, and more wise in business so that your impact is greater. Jocelyn Richard has both encouraged me to gain skill and has provided training I needed to grow in skill and to be able to get other training. She is an activator. God has gifted her to fan into flame the gifts of others in a unique way.
She is beginning a session of her Liturgical Dance Teacher’s Certification program soon and offering a free informational session tonight where she will answer all your questions.
If you want to add tools to your tool box, to gain skill, knowledge and wisdom, I encourage you to attend this complementary session and to pray about the certification program. Through it, Jocelyn has equipped and activated me and I pray she will you too.
