What is the Tuition Price?
The tuition for the 2018 Worship Leader Institute is $2795. A deposit of $695 is required to hold your place and needs to be paid soon as you are approved to come. This deposit is non-refundable on and after March 1st. Full payment is required by May 1, 2018.
Is it helpful for multiple song leaders to attend from the same church?
Absolutely! Since many churches utilize multiple song leaders, the impact is greatly multiplied when more than one song leader attends, and the investment in the future of the congregation enhanced. For congregations sending more than one person to WLI, contact Bill Brunkhardt for multi-leader discounts.
