July 27–28 | $30

Are you ready to rock? You’re invited to Church of Rock: Worship Band Camp, a two-day experience for middle school through college-age musicians. This camp is for people interested in refining their skills and being a part of the Rolling Hills worship team. Best of all, the camp will end with a worship concert put on by the participants.

There will be both large-group sessions and break-off groups that will provide hands-on practical training. You will learn skills and techniques used by Rolling Hills musicians, vocalists and production team members to create inspiring, authentic worship gatherings. More than that, you’ll learn how to grow your spiritual maturity and develop the heart of a servant ready to make an impact in the world.

Cost is $30 and includes Friday lunch.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is Church of Rock?
    Church of Rock is a one and a half day camp that provides hands-on training in voice, instruments and production (audio, video, lighting) within a church environment.
  2. What are the subjects will you cover?
    Voice, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Keyboards, Bass, Drums, Audio Mixing, Lighting, Video
  3. What age range is Church of Rock appropriate for?
    We have designed the camp to be for students from Middle-School through College. Case-by-case exceptions can be made based on a student’s skill level and attention span.
  4. Do I have to go to Rolling Hills to attend Church of Rock?
    No. While our curriculum is geared toward how we serve at Rolling HIlls, Church of Rock can be beneficial for students who serve in most churches that use music and production similar to Rolling Hills. That said, if you do go to Rolling Hills and want to serve in any of our worship gatherings, you definitely want to come to this!
  5. Who are the people putting on Church of Rock?
    Church of Rock is put on by the staff members of Rolling Hills Worship and RH Students as well as some of our regular volunteer team members in RH Worship. Here is the full list of our Camp Faculty for 2017:

  6. What kind of musical or technical experience do I need to have?
    There will be learning opportunities for everyone from beginner to advanced. However, our instruction will be focused on practical application in music and production that we use weekly our worship gatherings, so we will not be teaching introductory lessons on instruments. We recommend that students have at least a beginner-level familiarity with their instrument.
  7. Should I bring an instrument?
    In most cases, absolutely! If you plan on attending the bass or guitar clinics, bringing your own guitar is strongly encouraged. If you are an electric guitar player, you may even want to bring your pedals and amplifier if you have them. If you plan on taking the keyboard clinics, you could bring your keyboard as well, although it may be a bit more cumbersome and not as practical. If you are attending the drum clinics, bringing a set of sticks and maybe your favorite snare drum would be a good idea.
