School of Worship

Unlock fresh passion as you unleash your sound.


From the secret place to the stage, worship connects us to the heart of God. Come be equipped as a worshiper in breathtaking Tauranga, New Zealand. In the three-month Training Phase, you will learn from experienced leaders and musicians, as well as gain hands-on, practical experience.

The Prayer Room here at YWAM Furnace NZ exists to establish a place where Jesus is the centre of the gathering, and where individuals can unite through music-led prayer meetings. Our goal is to orchestrate the prayer of Jesus, that on earth it would be as it is in heaven–where there is never-ending prayer and worship around God’s throne. Spending time in the Prayer Room is built into eight+ hours of your weekly School of Worship schedule, and there is the opportunity to join as a musician or singer.

Finally, discover your vital role as a worshiper on the mission field during the two-month Outreach. We are committed to reaching the lost, and worship opens doors to people’s hearts in a unique way. Our short-term outreaches serve long-term workers, come alongside existing ministries, and can help pioneer new initiatives. Altogether, it will be an unforgettable experience as you know God and make Him known as a worshiper.
