Wecuk Music Outreach

Mission trip to Burkina Faso for musicians

Burkino Faso, West Africa — 10-20 Mar 2018

We need French-speaking musicians for a trip of a lifetime

Join a French-speaking team for 10 days of song-writing, musical exchange and outreach

Are you a qualified or experienced musician who would be excited about using your gifts for a unique cultural experience?

You’ll be part of a small group of musicians who will travel to Gaoua in southern Burkina Faso.

You will learn about heart-worship and participate in song-writing workshops.  

In Burkino Faso the team will be joined by 50 young worship leaders/musicians from the Evangelical Protestant (EPE) church, who will come from all over the country (EPE is established in five different regions of Burkina Faso).  

Song-writing workshop 1

As a group, you will facilitate and take part in a collective song-writing workshop, and together you will compose worship/praise songs for a special worship service.

The WEC Arts Release trainers will have explained ‘Heart Music’ a fundamental concept of Ethnomusicology.  

Song-writing workshop 2 and local outreach

There will also be a second song-writing workshop to create songs for outreach which everyone will learn for an outreach concert to the town of Gaoua.  


20-30 March
