"Shift" simply means to move or change. "115" comes from Psalm 115:1, "Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness." In a culture that is permeated with self-centeredness, we desire to raise up worshipers of Christ, to create opportunities to shift in worship - in life - to a place where it's not about us, to a place where we are centered in Christ.

"The mission of Shift115 Worship Collective is to build unity in the Church through Christ-centered worship."

Through a variety of events and gatherings, as well as working with leaders, teams, and churches individually, we have a threefold approach to our mission: to examine and strengthen our HEART through prayer, worship, and spiritual formation, sharpen our HEAD through biblical and technical teaching, and equip our HANDS through practical training and application.

We offer personalized mentorship opportunities as well as specific classes, groups, and a worship school which all include a mentorship component.

Shift115 Worship Collective is a 501c3 non-profit ministry founded  in 2011. We hope more and more worshipers will connect with this vision and partner with us in the ongoing effort of building unity in the Church and raising up worshipers of Christ.
