Crossworks School of Worship and Music exists to inspire, educate, and equip musicians of all ages to be true worshipers who joyfully use their musical gifts for the
glory of God, the good of His Church, and for the spread of the Gospel to all nations.
Founded upon the truth of 1 Corinthians 10:31 “...whatever you do, do all to the glory of God,” Crossworks desires to explain and embody what that
means in the ministry and practice of worship and music.
More specifically, we believe that there is no greater picture of God's glory than in the face of Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul
writes in his letter to the Galatians,
"God forbid that I boast in anything
except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ..."
This is the aim of Crossworks as well:
To boast in the cross of Jesus Christ to the glory of God the Father in the power of the Holy Spirit according to God's word for the
joy of his people from all every nation, tongue, tribe, and people!
Music education has been carried out in a vast number of ways throughout the history of mankind. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Crossworks
attempts to use to best practices of a wide variety of teaching methods that are tailored to each student’s individual needs and desires.
From standard music literacy training (note-reading) to the development of aural skills (playing "by ear”), Crossworks desires to serve the students by equipping them
to serve in diverse contexts which require a diverse array of skills.
Even though we will be working hard, we also aim to make music FUN! Students who learn to enjoy the hard work of practice will reap the benefits of the life-long skill
