What is a KINGDOM SONGS Boot Camp?
Kingdom Songs BootCamp is not a retreat! This will not be relaxing! Boot Camp is a master class designed to stretch, challenge and empower those writing songs for the church. We are going to dive deep into the the craft of Songwriting and your Kingdom charge as a Worship Songwriter. You're going to write more in 3 days than you probably do in 3 months. This will not be easy, nothing that makes us grow ever is.The Schedule (See Below) is tiring but we are going to fill every moment of this 3 day boot camp with INDISPENSABLe content and training.
How is Boot Camp different from the Retreats?
Think of a Boot camp as a retreat on steroids. At the old retreats you wrote 2 songs. At Boot camp you're going to write 5 or 6 songs in your 3 days here. Retreats had 1 Pro-Write, Boot Camps have 2 Pro writes! Boot Camps also feature one on one 30-45 minute sessions with Pro writers that can be used any way you want, song critiques, questions about songwriting, worship leading, producing, publishing, etc. Retreats were high school, welcome to college!
AWESOME, but Nashville is so far!
We know traveling can be expensive and stressful, but Nashville is largely the center of the songwriting universe and being here enables us to gather enough professional Songwriters to work with our Limited number of attendees. That is nearly a 2:1 Attendee to Pro Writer ratio. There isn't another songwriting bootcamp/conference/retreat that offers this anywhere!
I want to be famous, will i meet people who can make that happen?
Kingdom Songs is for the worship songwriter, More specifically for those who feel a call to write for their local congregations and equip the church with songs for a Kingdom purpose. Artists and songwriters of all kinds are welcome and greatly encouraged to apply but if fame is the primary motivation, this is not the best resource for you. We want to be worshipers first.

WHO IS KINGDOM SONGS BOOT CAMP FOR?
Great question! Our events are not just for your typical songwriter. They are designed specifically for those who have a heart to write songs specifically for the Church and are ready to take their writing to the next level. That’s not meant to devalue those who write CCM or any other genre. We just have such a passion for this specific sub-group of songwriters and desire to do everything we can to help equip, encourage, and build them up so that they can be as effective as possible in their own local context, as well as connect them in so that when possible, we can help support and launch them into a broader context.
WHAT IS COVERED IN THE $499 FEE?
Your fee covers all event materials, snacks and meals during the event (dinner on day 1; breakfast, lunch & dinner on day 2; breakfast & lunch on day 3), as well as the cost of bringing in high-caliber teachers and song-writers to facilitate the workshops, participate in the pro-writes, lead the breakouts, and conduct the one-on-ones. We know that the cost of events like ours is an investment, so we do our best to provide you with a world-class experience.
WHAT ABOUT LODGING?
We do not provide or coordinate lodging for Boot Camp. We have provided links below to area hotels and Air BnB's. Once we get closer to the event there will be a private Facebook page created to help introduce you to fellow Boot Campers. Many people look for roommates to share a house or hotel room with.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A KINGDOM SONGS BOOT CAMP?
We jam-pack your Boot Camp experience from start to finish with multiple workshops taught by professionals in the industry, peer-writes with other attendees, two pro-writes with some of the best worship songwriters around, a special writers round event, industry/ministry specific breakouts, and a one-on-one with one of our coaches. You can expect to be spent completely by the time you leave us, but it will be the best kind of "spent" possible. You can also expect to develop a tight-knit community with your fellow Boot Camp attendees that will start weeks before the event and continue long after.
WHAT IF SOMETHING COMES UP AND I CANNOT MAKE IT?
We know that life happens and unfortunately it means plans can get interrupted. If that happens to you, let us know just as soon as you can. If we aren’t able to issue you a refund (whether partial or whole) because we are too close to the event, we will gladly forward your registration fee to a future Kingdom Songs event.
