Ten Thousand
Fathers & Mothers

Raising and releasing spiritual mothers and fathers who creatively shape the future of the Church.

How will we grow Leaders?

At 10KFAM, we have the pleasure of training, discipling, and walking alongside worship leaders through the 10KFAM Worship School. We are also uniquely positioned to offer strategic support to leaders, churches, and ministries in their own contexts through our Consulting and Placement services.

Worship School

18-month leadership school

Worship School is our fully accredited, 18-month leadership school. It is an in-depth discipleship process where we coach worship leaders who lead songs to become worship pastors who lead people. We’ve graduated more than 400 students who are presently located in nearly 20 countries. Our alumni are leading worship each weekend for more than a quarter of a million people around the world.

Consulting

Customized to You

For Pastors and Worship Leaders looking for more focused help on either their own leadership or congregational issues, we’re honored to bring our experience and expertise to help with your particular needs. We like to be highly relational, consummately professional, and deeply prayerful about how we can best walk with you. Although these services can be engaged without any onsite visit from our consultants, we recommend at the very least an initial onsite visit to establish the relationship, observe the culture, and meet the team in person.

Placement Services

Church and candidates placement

At 10KFAM, we facilitate connections between worship pastors and churches seeking job opportunities. Through a comprehensive process, we learn about your history, vision, and values to find the best match, providing resumes and recordings for initial interviews, and offering six months of coaching for a successful transition and ongoing support.

Considering a Change?
How to Prepare for a New Worship Ministry Assignment

01.19.2024

A new year naturally turns our focus toward “new beginnings” of all kinds. People are suddenly resolute to lose weight, pray more, cut back spending, and sometimes even make career changes. For those in full-time ministry the holidays are demanding, and once the dust has settled many begin to contemplate whether they want to spend […]

Why a 10k?

07.26.2023

If you saw the announcement about the virtual 10k we’re hosting this fall, the thought may have crossed your mind, “Why would a worship school be promoting an athletic event?? Aren’t most of your students and alumni more the artist-types? Does a worship leader even need to care about being able to walk or run […]

The Sweet Spot

06.29.2023

There are three areas all leaders need to consider, be aware of, and give real weight to in order to find that sweet spot where both the leader and the church will find the most growth and fulfillment together. Prioritizing only one, or even two, will result in an imbalance that will not only be felt by the leader, but by the church as well.

Many of today’s churches tend to fall into the extreme categories of being defined as EITHER rooted/traditional OR renegade/charismatic, but how beautiful would it be to have congregations worshiping God across the full spectrum?

Q: How do I pick songs for a specific passage of scripture my pastor is speaking on?

06.03.2022

A: I’ll never understand a worship set that has nothing to do with the accompanying sermon. It is such a wasted opportunity when we arbitrarily pick songs that people may like yet don’t serve to orient us towards where the pastor is about to take us, or don’t pick up from where the sermon lands […]

Q: Should I talk between songs?

06.03.2022

A: Look at the Psalms. Some of them have superscriptions before verse 1. Some don’t. Some have built-in interjections like, “Selah.” I like this because, sometimes, the last thing you need to hear, as a worshiper, is someone talking. But sometimes, it’s exactly what you most need. How do you know when’s which? As a […]
