"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest."
Hosea 4:6

NOTE:  I've found these wonderful teaching resources that stress the importance of having a heart for worship and use sound, scriptural teaching - very important as we lift up the Lord with our 'props' to help us to worship with clean hands and a pure heart.  No returns/exchanges/refunds unless defected.  Immediate delivery based on availability.

I enjoyed Tamra Bracken's "Focused" video so much, I've decided to also carry her first one.  This is another great video from Tamra that all dance ministries or individuals who are interested in praise dance would benefit watching.  The choreography and teaching in this video is certainly anointed, and the focus is always on the ministry of the dance.  Featuring music by Steven Curtis Chapman, Carman, Rich Mullins and a Ragamuffin Band, Delirious, and Petra.  "Freedom" is filled with inspiring messages that come to life through dance, mime, music, and God's Word.  Freedom will help you to see ways to be set free through salvation, deliverance, the power of prayer, and God's Holiness.  Come journey with us as we see that , "He who the Son sets free, is free indeed!"
