Event Details

Worship Leader Summer Session: Columbus is for anyone age 18 to 35 who wants to take their worship leadership to the next level. If you are new to leading worship or need a tune-up & fresh inspiration – this event is for you! We will cover on-stage elements such as band dynamics, sound, vocal and instrument training. Additionally, we'll cover off-stage elements including band administration, discipleship of musicians, and soul care. This will be a once in a lifetime experience for you! Nothing compares to hands-on training with gifted teachers and mentors.

Additional topics will include:

  • Vocal care and development 
  • Administrating Your Worship Ministry

  • Electric Guitar, Keys + Vocal Day – Learn the basics of the emotion of the band
  • Songwriting Workshop + Song Share Circles 


Worship Leader Summer Session: Columbus will take place at Vineyard Church of Delaware County. Most of the classes and main sessions will be at the church campus, although we will be taking field trips during the week.


Early bird registration is only $399 and $449 after 5/5. That covers registration, materials, books, 3 lunches, 2 dinners, snacks, and all the coffee you can drink.


Host homes are being graciously offered by Vineyard Church of Delaware County for those who register by 5/5. These are free and you will get details after you register. If you prefer to stay at a hotel or register after 5/5, please make arrangements on your own.


Summer Session will begin Monday evening, June 3, and we'll have 3 full days of programming Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with a final session Friday morning. Expect to hit the road June 7 around Noon. Detailed schedule coming soon.


Should I bring my instruments?
SURE! There will be lots of guitars and digital pianos on campus. You are encouraged to bring your guitar, bass or other instruments as there will be additional times for jamming and collaborating.

Are scholarships available? 
YES! We are offering scholarships for those in need. Church planters and non-US passport holders are encouraged to contact us for more details on scholarship opportunities. Email for more details or apply for a Vineyard USA Ethnic Diversity Scholarship

What can expect from the host home? 
We will connect you with your host in the weeks leading up to your arrival so you can make arrangements for parking, entry, etc.

Many students will have cars with them and can ride share. Other students are encouraged to use Uber, Lift, public transit, etc...

Why is the Summer Session only for 18-35-year-olds? What’s the deal? 
Great question. We are specifically targeting younger, emerging worship leaders for this event. It will allow us to tailor-make this event for that demographic. We love and value multi-generational teams and will have other events that are all-ages (like the Vineyard Worship Leader Retreats).

Any other questions?

For 18 years Mike served as the worship leader of Vineyard Community Church in Marietta GA preparing thousands of weekend and special services under the leadership of one pastor. He oversaw a collective of 25+ musicians that wrote, recorded, and led worship services for VCC.

Dan Wilt says, “Mike O’Brien is one of the Vineyard’s most articulate communicators on the topic of contemporary worship leadership. His ability to break down complex ideas into memorable phrases and move-forward practices is second-to-none. I wholeheartedly recommend that you have Mike in to work with you, your musicians, and your techs. You won’t regret it; he carries the heart of worship deep within him – and it spills out everywhere.”

Mike is currently a top contributor to, an online training media library for worship teams. He has also done extensive worship team training throughout India. His heart is to come alongside the average worship joe in the trenches and help him or her champion a worship journey vision that serves the local church.

Vineyard Worship

Vineyard Worship exists as an organic extension of the Vineyard church movement in the USA (Vineyard USA). We are, in a phrase, "from the church, for the church.” We are not a music company first and foremost; we are a non-profit worship ministry. Our efforts will be centered in the cultivation and empowerment of the core value of worship in the Vineyard or more simply put "to help the local church experience God", rather than in a profit-driven music business model.
