About the Presenter:
Grant Nuss is a pastor and gifted worship-leader. He has released three albums, two of which are in the Christian Rock genre. He is a Theology and Sociology lecturer particularly enjoying teaching in the areas of Christian Spirituality, Christian Ethics, Christian Worship, and Worldviews. He has facilitated Worship Workshops throughout South Africa, and also in Nigeria, Ghana, and Tanzania. These workshops have been geared toward both the worship ministry itself, and, particularly, from the ambit of a worship-leader. This includes specific in-depth practical sessions in the areas of instrumentation, voice, harmonies, and song-writing. What we deal with is basically discovering our highest calling and how we best serve God within that given our talents, gifting, and leadership abilities for those who have been called to lead. “The power to bless the world around you is a direct result of your ministry to the Lord” (Gerrit Gustafson). In these workshops we speak into what worship is, our calling within it, the anointing, worshipping in “Spirit and in Truth”, and, among other areas, worship and the Presence of God.
