Designing and compiling academic courses that are specialized and practical in worship ministry.
Equip Persian, Afghan, and Tajik worship leaders to meet the requirements and standards of worship ministers through academic courses to strengthen the churches and develop God's kingdom.
Contextualization of worship in form and content. (helping Middle Eastern worship leaders follow their own culture in worship rather than imitating Western styles)
Previously, our ministry was limited to local and short-term church engagements. However, after establishing the necessary infrastructure, we are now able to offer a comprehensive one-year academic program and expand our ministries online.
The educational faculty of the Ava Worship Academy includes counselors and professors with experience and expertise in the field of Christian music and theology in order to equip and train anointed and efficient worshipers.
Ava Worship Academy is a subsidiary of Epiphany Culture and Art Foundation.
Ava Worship Academy provides services to churches and it is not a church itself.
Our efforts and focus are on providing interdenominational education so that we can serve the majority of Persian-speaking churches.
Why Worship Academy?
Despite the fact that the Persian-speaking churches are growing rapidly, we are clearly witnessing clear dispossession and that is the lack of worship leaders who are experienced and equipped in the churches. Another challenge we face in Persian-speaking churches is the deep gap between our culture and current worship music. Despite the efforts that have been made in this field, Often, our music is a copy of Western music, not Eastern. Passing these challenges and aspiring for a brighter future, will not be possible except through academic education in music and worship.
