\'shift\: to move or change
Psalm 115:1 "Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness."

The name essentially means to move to a place in worship, in our lives, where it's not about us, where it's all about Jesus.

\'shift\115 is committed to building unity in the church through Christ-centered worship.

Mentorship is at the heart of what we do. We offer personalized mentorship opportunities as well as specific classes, groups, and a worship school which all include mentorship in some aspect. We desire to raise up worshipers of Christ through all we do. In addition to mentorships, we offer community worship gatherings and equipping events throughout each year.

\’shift\115 is a 501c3 non-profit ministry and was founded by Seth Dekkenga in 2011. We hope more and more worshipers will connect with this vision and partner with us in the ongoing effort of building unity and raising up worshipers of Christ.
