As an Inspiro Arts Alliance 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.

The team will lead approximately thirty YWAM staff from two Filipino locations in a five-day workshop. Each day, the team will provide some basic instruction in worship, arts, and culture. Then, the team will facilitate the creation of cultural-relevant artistic expressions for use in corporate worship, telling Bible stories, and community development. Finally, the team will provide some basic tools in arts and trauma healing that staff members can use in their ministry. The timeframe is short, so the focus will be on practical tools and tips. After the first workshop, the team will travel to Surigao to work with rural pastors. The team will conduct a three-day ethnoarts workshop, encouraging the pastors in how they can use indigenous arts in worship and witness. During both workshops, the team will document any new artistic expressions through audio/video recordings and photography.

The Florence STEP (Short Term Exposure Program) is a unique opportunity for individuals to serve God in Florence, SC, USA at the OM Ships International campus. It is ideal for those with little, or no, missions experience and those looking to improve their English. Our desire is that participants learn and grow in their Christian walk and have their eyes and hearts opened to what God is doing through OM Ships. It is also an opportunity to seek the Lord for their next steps. We hope that each participant will leave with a better understanding of ministry and the part they have to play.
