What is a typical day at the Worship Lab?
Each morning will begin with breakfast and devotionals lead by our visit worship artists. Students will spend the morning and afternoon in separate band rehearsals, breakout sessions for specific instruments, and exploring various topics related to worship. Students will attend worship services each morning combined with those in attendance to the Alleluia Conference. Evening sessions will feature our visiting artists with testimonials, music, and questions from students.
What makes the Worship Lab unique?
Worship Lab stands apart from other events for its intentionally small feel and intimate setting. Occasionally, visiting worship artists participate in our camp to build relationships and dialogue one-on-one with students. Their presence is not simply a selfie and CD signing experience. At Baylor, our desire is to encourage your education of worship, while allowing you to develop world-class skills and God-sized hearts.
Do I need to come with a group?
Not at all! We do welcome the participation of entire youth worship teams, but the majority of our students come on their own. Before your arrival, you will be assigned a spot in one of our camp bands spend rehearsal time with this smaller group, as well as, the entire camp as a whole.
What type of lodging is provided?
Baylor University provides on-campus housing in one of our dorms for this camp. Specifics on room assignments are made in the weeks leading up to the event. You can request a specific roommate during registration. If you would like to request a roommate after registration has ended, you must email Chason_Disheroon@baylor.edu by June 15th.
