The Summer of Music (SOM) a ministry outreach training program, geared towards the musician’s relationship with God and using music in ministry. The YWAM Montana Lakeside Summer of Music trains musicians technically as well as spiritually and then releases them to use their gifts in a foreign nation on outreach. The heart of Summer of Music is to know God and make Him known. By learning how to share biblical principles through music and improving your technical skills, you will find that you are able to meet people right where they are. Music can provide an open door to the hearts of people who might otherwise be closed off to hearing the Good news of Christ.
