"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."

There is a need for worship leaders and their teams to be mentored and equipped, especially in biblical foundations and spiritual formation and leadership. Through Worship School processes and workshops, we desire 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.

"Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ." (1 Corinthians 12:12 NIV)

There are dozens of Christian denominations, affiliations, traditions, and expressions of worship represented in our community! Through Community Worship Gatherings, we hope to bring together followers of Christ from all nations and denominations to be encouraged through prayer, worship, and fellowship, exalting the name of Jesus!

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.
