  1. Get You Functional (this is the focus of Modules 1-3)
  2. Expand Your Toolbelt (we work on this in Modules 4-5)
  3. Prepare You Professionally (and creatively! The really fun stuff is typically in modules 6-8)
  1. They Save You Time - They are a system to get you functional and playing real worship songs quickly without feeling overwhelmed.
  2. Fun But Challenging  - ZJC courses challenge you via quizzes, tests and more to create resistance & test what you’ve learned.  This simulates what you would learn in private lessons, and makes it more likely that you will retain what you learn and take the learning beyond this course.
  3. Teach You “How To Fish” - I want you to become a self teacher.  These courses take techniques from private lessons & self-teaching experience to give you exercises that train your brain, and train you to learn how to create exercises to self teach new musical concepts.
  4. They Prepare You Professionally (And Creatively!)  - As a worship leader, this course is everything I would want you to know about playing on a worship team.  Serving on a team is more than playing the right notes.   These courses teach how to be an ideal team member, and are tailored for worship ministry preparation.

    The courses are based on 15 years of personal live experience on worship teams in non-orchestral roles (worship leading, acoustic, electric, bass, drums, keys, tech and more), plus composition training & arranging experience working with orchestral instruments.  When you put it all together, this allows me to take a holistic approach.  It allows me to share the unique things an ideal team member pays attention to, as well as how each role relates to other members of the team. 

    For example, this course talks about how bass players & drummers work together, as that's a key relationship for bass players.  Other roles have different things they need to focus on, and they will be covered in additional courses.

    There are also many things in ZJC courses that are based on two decades of broader ministry experience in over 400 churches across 45 US States & South Africa.  I draw from this experience to accelerate the journey of new worship leaders & team members.  In the courses, I do everything I can to make you more effective in your ministry as you serve your local church and beyond.
Full courses live:

Status on future courses:

We have completed shooting on all remaining courses:  Electric, Piano, Drums & Vocals.

This information is subject to change for any reason, is given as a courtesy, not a commitment.

All content is designed to work as a system to provide the essentials & help you self teach, without wasting your time with fluff.

There are over five hours of video divided into small 30 second to 7 minute chunks per topic.   We've tried to boil things down to the absolute essentials so it saves you time in the learning process.

This is a curated selection of what I consider to be the most important & relevant.  It is designed to launch you into serving on a worship team.

Total, there are well over 300 pieces of content over 24 full-length modules and 6 shorter intro & final exam modules. 

Each module has 2 quizzes (avg. 5 questions), 1 test (avg. 8 questions), 1 set of critical thinking questions (avg. 3 questions), 1 set of practice exercises (avg. 3 exercises), plus 1 record yourself upload where you upload smartphone video of yourself playing the concepts in this course. 

Absolutely! Supporting ZJC with a subscription makes it possible for us to update & improve content in the future as part of existing plans.  We've already added new videos to existing courses after launch.

We recommend one account per person.  Later on when we expand our services, if you want coaching calls or a certificate of completion in the future, it makes tracking quiz, test & Record Yourself results impossible to track when account sharing is going on.

However, sharing content within the same household is allowed.

Sharing outside of a household violates the Terms of Use.  In verifiable cases, you risk account suspension.

You are allowed to show someone content your subscription to encourage others to purchase their own subscription.

You are allowed to share an account with an immediate family member who is not living with you (such as a brother sharing an account with a sister who is away at college).

You are not allowed to share an account with anyone outside of your immediate family or household.

At this time, there are no specific song tutorials.  Copyright law allows us to link to Youtube & publicly available chord charts from other sites that have licensed them.  Hillsong & Vineyard Worship have both confirmed in writing this is acceptable under copyright law.

The focus of this course is self-teaching by finding & interpreting publicly available resources, which is how I self taught acoustic, bass & electric guitar. 

There are plenty of great worship song tutorial sites, especially with free trials, and you are welcome to use those alongside this course.

I recommend specific songs you learn at the end of the early modules, with some guidance, and then encourage you to learn your church's repertoire from your church PCO.
