    This course is really good! It provides a lot of resources in both areas: in technical aspects as well as in spiritual aspects. It also provides an excellent foundation in which we can build a very God oriented dance ministry. The variety of components: books, videos, chats, assignments, Conferences etc, definitely help us to grow and mature in our ability and anointing in dance ministry. I highly recommend this course for any person that want to pursue dance ministry but especially for anybody that wants to lead a dance ministry

    Of all the benefits I have gained from the DFH Level 2 school, the most valuable is a greater infilling of the Spirit's creative, life-giving force and energy in ministry. As each assignment was completed I could only worship the Lord in wondrous gratitude. I had to put some other things aside during this time to remain focused...but I really have the sense that I have run a race, and kept my eyes on the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

    Final Evaluation Review

    One word to describe this experience AMAZING... wouldn't trade it for anything in the world I've gained so much, learn so much, experience so much through DFH school!!! I thank God for Pastor Lynn, for this journey, the sweet treasures that I've gained that no one can take away! I also thank God for the Sisterhood I gained that no one can take away the special family that I've gained. I appreciate the my AP (accountability partner) KATELIN that check on me and encouraged me throughout the year! From the techniques to the learning how to be a true worshipper the scriptural blessings and the teaching that I learned about dance, is just amazing. And if you are a person like me... when I was first signing up for the DFH school I was doubting and questioning and wondering if I was called, I was struggling to be a leader, to step out and go forth, this experience changed all of that! So for anyone struggling in these areas this is definitely the school for you, definitely a journey that you won't regret! A must take, a great investment! It revived me, refreshed me, encouraged me and inspired me! The in-depth teachings got my creative juices flowing again where choreography is concerned and made me want to press and go forth in what God has called me to do. The teaching on being a leader, even learning how to be a team player, a team-builder working together as a team for the common goal which is to please God and break yokes...it is just been great in one word AMAZING. An experience of a lifetime and I have no regrets even through my own personal ups and downs, the trials, the test throughout this entire year working 2 jobs heavily involved in Ministry, school or just life and family I still don't regret signing up for this school, sticking it out of course with the help and the grace and the mercy of God I made it! I encourage anybody to join, especially if you're serious about dancing, if your called to dance for HIM or if you just simply have any questions about dance ministry. If you love knowledge look no further! This has been again a Journey I wouldn't trade for anything in the world and again and again I would encourage anybody to sign up for DHF School you/ I gained much more than dance!! Praise God....AMAZING😄

    These past two years have been amazing in my life. I thank God for leading me to the DFH school. I have learned so much information that has helped me grow spiritually and made me closer to God. I would urge those who would like to start a dance ministry in either their church or community, to join DFH School and they will not regret. For the ladies in Level I, if you are debating whether to take Level II or not, my advice is take it. Level II will stretch you both physically and spiritually. You will learn great concepts in level II that will help you grow your dance ministry , will teach you how to handle critism from team members, congregation or clergy. By the end of Level II you will be closer to your God than Before.
    I thank pastor Lynn for her encouraging words, My AP Lolita, you are the best, you always picked me up when I felt low and to my fellow students, thank you for all your beautiful smiles and comments. You kept me rolling ladies!!

    DFH School was a dream that I have been waiting for a long time ago and now accomplished this 1st year is such a blessing.
    I have learned a lot during this journey through Pastor Lynn, her humbleness, support through each one of level 1 school sisters and through a huge information in the books and DVDs you can't imagine before starting it that will be that much and that rich.
    I encourage everyone has the call to be a worship dancer/ dance leader to take this step and be sure you are on the right track.
    God bless you.

    Essay 25: Course Evaluation
    This course has truly been a challenge for me but I sure don’t regret it. I recommend it to anyone hungry and thirsty to please and worship our God our Creator our Abba our EVERYTHING through dance. Yes, I’ve been a dance leader for over 5 years but little did I know. This course helped me evaluate myself where I was standing as a daughter of God. I had some knowledge of what dance was in God But in this course, it taught me in a deeper depth and profound way. Yet I still have much to learn and put in practice, but can sure say this course has impacted me. This course took me to become more creative and learn how to listen to the voice of God (I’m still in process). The Holy spirit ministered me through the videos and through the book including the conference I attended in an unexpected way. Conference by the way was powerful haven’t experience or seen the Holy Spirit minister without the laying hands. I mean yes I’ve seen it but in the conference, was different hard to explain. It’s beautiful how He works in the way that we least expect it. Throughout this course I was extremely attack by the enemy that at times took me of course, distracted me for he wanted to steal my blessing that was imparted to me through this course. For if you want to grow in God be guided by the Holy Spirit Hungry and thirsty for more, I highly recommend this course.

    Dancing For Him Course is so awesome for all dancers!! This course was right on time in my life and was very exciting as I learned the creative movement of God thru my body and how it helps the body of Christ! Pastor Lynn Hayden is the best instructor and all the classes are very easy to understand and learn but you do gain a lot of knowledge, vocabulary, and information and also she challenges you to truly be used as a chosen called dancer of The Lord. You meet new people and they become your motivating circle of love.
    This course strengthens you! You become stronger in your relationship with God, stronger in working on a team, stronger physically for the call, stronger mentally to handle the revelation of God, stronger in hearing the voice of God, stronger in choreography, & stronger in understanding the wisdom of the call as a dancer! I recommend it to all and it truly helped my call!!

I learned numerous things about dance being used not just for the purpose of praise and worship which brings joy to the heart, but dance can also minister to the heart of others. I have grown in many ways and thank the good Lord for leading me to this anointed ministry and mentor Pastor Lynn.

My relationship with the Lord has grown so much deeper and I have confidence that I did not have before this program started. The knowledge I have gained will be invaluable as I continue on with what the Lord has planned to do through me.

    Pastor Lynn is such an awesome pastor, leader and encourager. Her knowledge will amaze you and you will gain so much going through the Level 2 course. I love all of my classmates and my Accountability Partner for all of their encouragement throughout the year. I cannot recommend this program enough and would like to encourage everyone who feels called to this ministry to take the leap of faith and sign up for this course. It will change your life in amazing ways. I am so glad I did.

    I wrestled for months before deciding to take this course and now I know why because in the spiritual realm was a battle going on and through Level 1 DFH course, there's victory! If my heart is not intimately connected to Jesus, it is so hard to move my body through dance. So, to be connected with students all over the world with one heart to worship Jesus is transforming. I mot only learned the basics of dance, but the best are the principles in the Bible that no one seems to teach how movement is so powerful in conjunction to worship and Praise. My heart overflows with gratitude for the things God taught me in these 10 months and the sisters I otherwise would never be connected to. Sole de Gloria.

    Level One Course Evaluation

    The Dancing For Him (DFM) Ministries, Level One on line dance course has been amazing! I really didn’t know what to expect. I just knew I was in search of something more that I could offer when dancing for the Lord. Praise God!! I received much more than that! There was a kinship that developed with other spirit filled dancers around the world. We shared with one another in openness and love. I learned more ways of expressing worship and praise movement through my body, flags and banners. More importantly, I am learning to express God’s heart for His people through word, song and dance.

    In the beginning I wasn’t even sure how I would get the assignments completed. It was through the grace of God, and all of those involved in the school, that pushed me forward. Thank you Jesus!!

    I have always loved to dance and it is pure joy to dance for the Lord and be a blessing through movement. I joined the DFM Ministries School because it gave me an opportunity to work on my technique. As I got into the assignments, I found that it also provided a consistent dance curriculum that was easy to follow. All of the books and DVDs that were written and/or led by Pastor Lynn, that were assigned and studied, helped me to stretch and strengthen my faith and my desire to dance and teach. All of these resources are there for me to go back and grab at any time, which I WILL!!

    The spirit of Pastor Lynn Hayden and my Accountability Partner, Jeanine Durning was very inspirational, gracious, and kind. The other dance students at all levels, including alumni, were very encouraging to me and to one another. This type of interaction provided an environment that allowed growth and inspired excellence. Another thing that I liked was that Pastor Lynn didn’t mind sharing her experiences and her thoughts about dancing for God and the importance of being led by the Holy Spirit.

    I also attended a DFH dance conference in Idaho Falls, Idaho in June and there was a magnificent presence of the Holy Spirit during the whole conference. I am making plans for Level TWO and praying about what conferences I will have the opportunity to attend next year! The entire year was a marvelous experience and I look forward to 2017.

    Wow, there is not enough words to express what this course has done in my life. Being a Level 2 student has been a year of TRANSFORMATION. Level 1 taught me the basics but Level 2 takes you to another level. It has been a challenging year and it has stretched me. The DVD’s, books, and the worshipping bride and Pillars of Leadership books are amazing. You will grow spiritually, and it will bring you closer to God. You will have a better understanding of what it means to be a dance minister for the Lord. I learned so much more about expressing the Father’s heart through dance movements and interpreting his word through those movements. Pastor Lynn is an amazing woman of God, an anointed teacher and a dancer. I am so blessed to know her and to be taught by her. What I love about this school is that you are not alone. You will have a mentor that prays for you and other fellow students that are there to support you. You will also be assigned a mentee. I want to thank my mentor Patricia Witherspoon Dyer for praying for me, encouraging me, and lifting me up throughout these two years. I highly recommend those who are in Level 1 to consider to go on to level 2 because there is so much more to learn. Pastor Lynn has developed an extensive curriculum for Level 2 that you will be amazed at all the information that you will learn. You will learn more technique at a higher level and you will grow spiritually. I want to encourage you to continue with the journey that God has set out for you. Thank you Pastor Lynn and God bless you!!!

    This is the best school year experience I ever had. The way I got into DFH Level 1 School first of all was a miracle from God because I never thought I would of got in this year. If it wasn`t for God who put the desire in different people heart to sow into my ministry, I wouldn`t have this amazing blessing to be thought by Pastor Lynn Hayden and embrace her knowledge and skills set. I have grown so much not only in the ministry but personally. My dance skills are in another level with God. My vocabulary is rich regarding the the term I should use and knowing where and when to use the dance patterns. The vision that God has for me in the ministry is much clearer than before. I can really say that I am grateful to have Pastor Lynn as my mentor. She`s a true woman of God who is attentive to others needs in order to see them succeed. I am honour that I learned from the best hands down. II highly recommend the DFH Level 1 School for those seeking a deeper revelation and another level in Christian dance. This school had help me grow to be what I was made to be as a Christian dancer, Praise and Worshipper... Because of DFH Level 1 School I couldn`t never be put in a box. I`ve learn to take this world by storm by the grace of God!

    There are not enough words to express my gratitude for how much Dancing For Him Level 1 School has meant to me over the past year. The vision that God has given Pastor Lynn to develop, equip, and activate others to minister to the Lord through dance, movement, and prophetic worship is a life-transforming experience for all who "step in the waters." You'll meet worship dancers from around the world, make new friends, and develop your dance vocabulary and choreography. The teaching is balanced and scripturally based making it easy to follow. This course pulls the best out of you and cultivates your heart to move deeper into your relationship with the Lord and then, out of the overflow, minister the heart of God to others. The regimen of having assignments to do weekly is one of the disciplines that you will enjoy while providing accountability and cultivating a greater heart in you to dance for the Lord.

    Do you feel drawn to dance for the Lord? Don't know what to do or where to begin. Then this course would be a valuable resource for you. You will learn so much about worship dance and ministering before the Lord in dance. So many different styles of dance are taught. Some of which are Ballet, Stretch and Adoration, Sign Language and there are many others. You will learn so many techniques that will enhance and grow you in your dance ministry and also in your relationship and walk with the Lord. It would be a very wise investment to make. I know that it has helped me to grow deeper in my calling to dance for the Lord and also my relationship with the Lord. I am thankful for the vast array of knowledge that has been instilled in us through this course. I look forward to using everything that I have learned in dances and ministry pieces that I will bring to the body of Christ to minister the heart of the Father to His children.

    My two years in the DFH school has been very rich. In my first year, I feel that I received an in depth foundation for movement in worship as I studied the word, practiced the technique videos, and enjoyed the hands on experience of the conferences. Then the second year built on this foundation in a wonderful way. Through the weekly assignments I learnt how to take the mental knowledge of what I learnt and unleash creativity in the form of activations to make it experiential. We know that God is good, but feel that people need to experience His presence. I love to see others be released into joy and freedom and feel that this course has given me some wonderful tools to nurture this and also to draw out creative gifting in them.

    I give God all the glory honer and the praise for allowing me to partake in this ministry. It has been an experience of illumination of my heart towards God and his love towards me. I came into the ministry excited and so ready to be used by God. I knew I had a passion to dance before the lord and a desire to share that passion and a will to be used by God to inspire others with the love of God moving in me. I honestly did not know the debth of being a dance leader never mind a minister and the teaching I recieved through this course has birthed it in me. Participating in this ministry has developed my mindset and helped me grow as an individual as well as a dance ministry leader. It has taught me so much about who I am and who's I am so I can lead and inspire others through dance. The course was broken into parts that lined me up in the word in my life first and then all the rest of me followed. The course objectives were easy to follow once I got passed the few month only because I was not computer "fancy". I learnt so much about social media and how to make my way around using the computer and I believe my typing skills got faster...LOL Do I think I know it all? No but do I believe I can lead? Yes! 100%! Why? Because I now have the tools to apply and a family I can go to, to iron sharpen iron when it comes to full filling the call of God in me to inspire other through dance. The course has encouraged me, equipped me and empowered me to follow the leading of the holy spirit in me. I can now be confident in knowing the voice of God, I can also see God on another level to minister the heart of God and I can hear God (discern). I would tell anyone who believes God is pouring out his spirit in them to express their heart & love for God through dance to take the challenge and be challenged to full fill the call of God on their lives and join the DFH Ministry family and know God has them right where he wants them.

    If you need direction on how to teach your dance team or to teach yourself why and how to worship/praise dance this is for you! That is exactly why I joined! I have been worship/praising the Lord for years, but when the Lord put in my heart to teach it, I couldn’t explain what my movements meant. That’s when I came across Pastor Lynn School of DFH. It was just right! The Lord opened all the doors for me to be able to do it. I even homeschool my two girls and I have time to do the DFH schoolwork. This school really helped me! I used the curriculum to go right along with my dance team. It has made it much more structured and organized for me to teach! I learned so much! It has even helped me to do a better when doing my uploads as I don’t like taping myself. Yikes. This school will stretch you. You will find your weakness in dance and your strengths as well, and that is ok! If you allow the Lord to stretch you, you will grow in dance ministry! It was truly a blessing this school! And I gained a family out of it! I couldn’t imagine life without my Dancing For Him ladies!

    To say that this was a fantastic year of dance instruction is really an understatement. I absolutely loved it. This Level I course has taught me so much about dance and worship and the Lord Himself that I’m still trying to take it all in. When I started this class, I had no experience in worship dance at all, but I knew that was what God had called me to do. Now, it’s really hard to not move and break out in dance when I hear a song. This course has taught me more about choreography, sign language, flags and billows, and fitness in general than I ever thought I could learn in these short months. Every book and DVD has been a huge blessing, every assignment has been a joy to complete, and the fellowship with others has been amazing. I can’t wait to learn more in Level II. Thank you Pastor Lynn for an amazing year!

    FINAL COURSE EVALUATION - LEVEL 2 DFH

    Being involved with Dancing for Him has changed my life. It was the best decision I have made to go

    farther in my walk with God and my calling to be a Dance Minister.

    Pastor Lynn has the class structured so that you not only grow in your skill in dance, you are also

    learning from the word and how it applies to you. The second level takes you even deeper still.

    Somehow God brings you up to a life of confidence, but then at the same time you are humbled and

    learn how to walk in humility.

    The support system of other sisters in the Lord are going through the same thing you are.

    God provides answers to your questions through the wisdom of Pastor Lynn and other participants in the

    class. I couldn't have done it without my sisters in Dancing for Him!!!!!!

    Their encouragement in every lesson helped me to push through to the end!!!! My family was patient

    and helped me to balance my time with ministry and time with them.

    Pastor Lynn was very faithful to always answer questions that we might have. Most awesome lady -

    wise - patient - kind- but firm and very knowledgeable in her field. Always encouraging us to press

    forward!!!!!

    Thank you so much!!!!!

    Dancing for me has been a great experience I learned a lot on different types of dance ministries.
    I was introduce to different types of dance styles and concepts on how to create beautiful and well balance choreographies. The books and videos were very detailed and easy to use. I love the mentor programme and the way that the workload is divided. I recommend this school to all true worshipers who dance for the Lord Jesus.

    Level 1 Dancing for Him on-line school has been a life changing experience. I must admit I wasn't sure what to expect but this course stretched me in so many different ways. Pastor Lynn's teaching technique helped me clearly understand each concept as she fluidly demonstrated each movement. Her style of teaching was not intimidating but encouraging especially for those that don't have a dance background. Thank you Pastor Lynn for answering the call and being obedient to the Lord.

    Level 1 Evaluation
    My desire to become a student of Dancing for Him Ministries began after attending a DFH graduation conference. I admired how the students could move and flow with the Holy Spirit. As a proficient flagger with no prior dance experience, it was at that conference that I first heard the Holy Spirit call me a “Dancer who dances with flags.” By that time, the enrollment deadline for the online school had already passed. During the following year, I began to see myself as a dancer. But, it wasn’t until my first year as a DFH student that I truly believed that I am a dancer! Now, even the ministerial leadership at our church call me “one of the dancers!” Pastor Lynn’s teaching materials are thorough and give a solid scriptural understanding of dancing for the Lord. They cover topics such as dance technique and conditioning, the use of props and costumes, choreography ideas and design, dance team leadership, and the biblical foundation for the different uses of movement in worship. The course was well designed and assignments were easy to follow with clear expectations setting out specific tasks to be completed each week and month. My accountability partner offered prayer and encouragement along the way. I am amazed at how the assignments stretched me past my comfort zone by applying what I had learned and allowing me to take new territory. Time and time again, I was able to draw strength from the scripture contained in the materials I was studying. My movement vocabulary, creativity and understanding of the use of props has expanded profoundly and I have confidence in my ability to dance and move without flags in my expression of worship to the Lord. My identity is now as a “Dancer for Him.” I am forever changed!

    Where do I begin? First thank you God for gifting Pastor Lynn and directing her path into creating Dancing for Him Ministries School. She has truly been an inspiration in my life. We managed to cover so much material in such a short period of time (at least that’s what it felt like to me). But all that we learned really helped to build the foundation for us to either move on to level 2, or to begin to operate in our gifts. There was so much I didn’t know like the Expressive Worship words, the areas of a stage, types of movement, and the correct way to run a rehearsal, okay so there was A LOT that I didn’t know. But, I realized there was a lot that God had already blessed me with and that I really needed the guidance and encouragement from Dancing for Him.
    Through the guidance from the school and Pastor Lynn, I have so much more confidence in my gift than ever before. I worship so much more freely now. The other reason is because after I had a hysterectomy, I literally gained the weight of a 9 year old. This kept me from being able to dance for over a year without having an asthma attack. Yet, I was still able to complete my assignments because of the way the program was structured. To God Be the Glory. I was able to minister 2 weeks ago and I was able to apply many of the things I had learned to the dance. I felt like God was looking down on me with a huge smile on his face. Would I recommend this program? The answer is yes but only if you really desire to take your ministry to the next level and ready to work hard in the process. Was the program easy? Nope. But it will be so worth it. Thank you to my AP, Tanya Perez for always answering my many questions with a smile and to Sister Renee Gagnon for taking on the huge task of keeping us all accountable and up to date. Level 2, here I come.

    I have gone to several schools here in US and abroad BUT DFH school is the greatest thing that I have encountered. The last ten months have been amazing, oh my, I have learned so much about the dance ministry and ministering the heart of the Father to his people. The wealth of knowledge contained in course work or the curriculum is out of this world. I would recommend it to anyone who desires to be used of God through the dance ministry. The course is of college level but Pastor Lynn has laid it down so well such that anybody willing to learn can understand the materials and equip themselves for the ministry. The uploads, essays and all the assignments will motivate you to give your best for the Lord. It has been a great course and I'm looking forward for second level next year.

After a life transforming experience at one of the retreats, I knew I needed to be apart in a greater way. I wanted to help others have encounters like I had had and continued to have as I attended more retreats and conferences. And I wanted to be with and learn from others who longed for the same. So I joined Level 1 and WOW! Not only have I learned so much from Pastor Lynn (thank you Pastor Lynn for your love and encouragement)and the students, I have learned so much about myself! This year has stretched and challenged me to step outside the box I had put myself in as a dancer for Him and BELIEVE..... and then receive! Thank you to all the wonderful students in this school!! Your love and encouragement has been received...And I will never be the same!

I have learned the deeper reality of what it means to embody the fruits of the spirit, especially patience!! In this first year of the school you will learn a whole new language of expressive worship and how to make your worship dance more creative and minister to express the Father`s heart.

    Level 1 DFH has been a learning experience on many levels. As the course laid a foundation for dance ministry, I experienced a deeper understanding and excitement of what God is doing in the area of the arts. Dance is just one of the arts where you see that visual expression of who God is and experience how much He cares about us. Through the discipline of getting the assignments handed in on time and the guidance on how to teach, it’s a wonderful leadership training. I loved the technique videos which helped to learn the basics on ballet and modern dance, and the many examples and tools to expand creativity. I have so much more to give when I teach. Thank you for a great year.

    What a blessing DFH Level 1 School has been. The learning experience received was great. Pastor Lynn Hayden’s teaching causes you to dig within yourself. She has an abundance of knowledge that she shares through the school that will take you to go to another level. Going through the DFH Level 1 School pushes you to stir up your creativity in your dance, to grow spiritually, and learn biblically what God says about dancing for Him. The DFH Level 1 School has made a powerful impact on me; it will encourage you, strengthen you, and challenges you not to sit on your talents/gifts, but to use them as a blessing to others and for God. I highly recommend the DFH Level 1 School for those seeking a deeper revelation and another level in Christian dance.

    Attending DFH has proved to be one of the best decisions that I have made, not just for my ministry but for my life. When the school year first began the list of assignments seemed overwhelming but if you follow the outlines and obey the time frames you can do it all stress free. Being a wife, mother of four, business owner, mentor and very active member at my church DFH was still very doable. The curriculum flowed together beautifully. Each lesson via both Pastor Lynn’s books and DVDs were all taught at an easy to understand level. I felt empowered by each lesson. The school is designed to be a network of support and encourage and that really helps along the way. You won’t regret it if you decide to attend DFH’s online school. The education, activations, friendships and sisterhoods that you will gain will be priceless.

    Being a part of Dancing for Him School has been a life-changing journey. The main reason I joined this school was I wanted to become a better Choreography. Each DVD we went though helped develop skills I never had before. The way Pastor Lynn has developed this program each DVD and book builds on the one before it. You not only get a firm foundation in dance, you also learn about the biblical importance of dance and movement in the bible. The face book page was a great source of information. The sharing among the students was an important part on the program. You could ask question, receive suggestions for problems, you could receive words of encouragement or pray. Pastor Lynn added a person touch by making herself available to us thought email and our Sunday phone chats. As time went on I started questioning my initial motives for joining the school. The more I learned the more I realized that there was a piece of the puzzled missing from my original motive and that was the why. By the end of the program my why had been answered. Why did I want to become a better chorographer it was so I could minster the heart of the father more effectively to his people? So I could share with others that perfect love cast out all fears, so no matter what is going on you can call on the Lord. And most important of all that God sent his only son so that who every believes in him will have eternally life. And that is why I Dance for Him. Thank you Pastor Lynn for helping figure out my Why

    He's turned my mourning into DANCING! I remember one of the very first times I felt the need to move my body in worship. Somehow, just standing there wasn't enough to express what I was feeling inside! But what was I to do with this desire to... dance? That's where the Lord started me on a journey that led me to Dancing for Him. I am so grateful to DFH Ministries and to Pastor Lynn specifically for the last year. The Dancing for Him Ministry School has been such a blessing! Every book, every video, every assignment, poured into me like new wine and refreshed and renewed my passion and calling for dance.

    Don’t be intimidated by worship dance! All you need is a genuine love for God, a sincere heart of worship, and a general interest in dance movement. Even if you’ve never danced in your life, God can still use you in worship dance! If you can wave your hands and shuffle your feet, you can dance for the Lord! In Dancing for Him Ministry’s dance school, the emphasis is not just on learning methodology, but also on studying worship dance/movement as mentioned in the Bible, having a good relationship with God, and being sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading. When we dance for the Lord, we are not performing; we are ministering God’s heart to the people. If we open ourselves as empty vessels for God’s use, He can pour into us His thoughts, and use us to bring healing and deliverance to many people.

    In this dance school, above all else, I learned how to quiet myself before the Lord and choreography/present worship dance that come straight from His heart. I’ve never done this before, and I am constantly amazed at how beautiful everything turns out. I know for certain that the dance did not come from me, but from the Lord. If you are interested in letting God use you to minister to people through dance, then this school is for you! You will learn so much through Pastor Lynn’s anointed teaching, and you will also meet so many people who have the same desire and passion to worship the Lord through dance.

    I have always had a passion and love for dance, but that passion had been squashed by the enemy. Without my searching God brought me to Dancing For Him Ministries. Less than one year ago, I started the Dancing For Him school for prophetic dance. I had never heard of prophetic dance before. I am about to finish Level 1 and I cannot express how much God has taught me over the last year. Before, I longed to dance but was caged by what religion and the world said about it. I thought I was too old and too unskilled. Now I have been freed! God has shown me my destiny, that He created me a dancer; that He gave me that passion and love! Through Dancing for Him school He has now given me the tools and the trust in Him! It's almost too much to take in, it's so wonderful! Talent, skill, body type, and age are no longer things to exclude me from dancing, because He made me a dancer and not just a dancer of dances, but a dancer of His heart. These are things I did not understand and could not expressed before the amazing teachings that I received this year at school. Through the school I have discovered new insights to His word; I have learned new dance styles and forms of exercise; I have learned how to choreograph a dance and how to use props; and I have participated in prophetic dance and seen people changed by a touch from God. A year ago I would have laughed if you told me I would dance for the Lord in church. Today I dance for the Lord in church! I have been changed through this education. I have a great family of sisters, also called to dance, that encourage and pray me. I have a family of mentors and a dancing community like no other. Dancing For Him school has brought me knowledge and understanding of my Savior and has given me a confidence I never believed possible. I just have to say, "all glory to God who is able through His might power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think!" He has done that in my life and has used Dancing For Him Ministries and Pastor Lynn's experience and leadership to bring me to the next level and to unlock the next steps in my destiny. I am so thankful to the Father for His goodness and to Pastor Lynn for being His obedient servant and daughter. I hope this leaves no doubt that I highly recommend Dancing For Him Ministries' school for prophetic dance. The King wants His kingdom full of His dancers!

    Hello,
    I can't believe that we are so close to the end of this Level 1 course. Where has the year gone??!
    I have very much enjoyed this course.
    Initially I must say that I was overwhelmed with the idea of completing 28 DVD uploads, 24 essays and product related comments, biographies, phone chats and web checks…but here we are in Oct and we are almost done. I loved the material and in the end having to prepare soemthing every week made me focus, practice and learn so much as I completed each of the assignments. Best of all is that all of the information that I have gleaned is information that I have wanted to learn for years! God knows our hearts!!!
    What a blessing!!!
    Pastor Lynn is a very clear teacher and she is also very patient with us all.
    Getting to know the other members of the class was a special surprise blessing. What an amazing group of women who love the Lord and whose heart is to worship Him in their "dance language".
    If you have wondered about Christian dance, if you are in leadership or if you simply have an interest in dance and the church, this is the course for you!
    Some of us have dance teams, some of us come from churches where dance is not seen as an acceptable form of worship. This is a scripturally based, respectful course that prepares the participant to worship in dance before our Lord with more technique and more spiritual and practical maturity!
    And most importantly, we get to worship our Lord and share His heart with others on and off the stage!
    Blessings to you!!

    It was online, which makes it convenient. You also get to know different people with your similar heart and get new fresh ideas from these people. It was fun because you were learning something new every week (even every day). The books and videos created by Pastor Lynn were easy to follow and understand. We also had the privilege of asking questions. Although this was difficult at first, it taught you who you were as a person in dance ministry.
    These questions allowed for the inexperienced to receive from the experienced, which allowed less fear in trying to approach new things like costumes and procedures in different churches, etc. Lastly, this course was challenging. We had to produce/reproduce what was learned which meant you would be able to teach someone else. That was the whole point of being in this school, to be able to instruct someone else on the techniques, which made it very easy, and helped build my confidence.

    DHF has been more than a blessing to me. For many years I had been looking for a place to form my calling and had not found it. When I met Pastor Lynn and her school I had found more than what I had wished for. I highly recommend this school of dance worship, not only to those who want to learn but those who say I want to fulfill my call. If you were looking for a place to improve all that God has given you, you have found it!!

    I have learned more than I imagined regarding the calling of the ministry of dance in my life through the Dancing for Him Ministry School! The school is strategically organized where you learn, dance technique, how to effectively choreograph, and how to truly minister. I fully understand the calling on my life so much more and I have the confidence to start the God given vision of a community dance ministry! Throughout this process God has removed things that have been strongholds in my life so I can be free to do His will and to be used without hinderance. I also have learned how to be more disciplined and organized concerning the development of a dance ministry. I am truly blessed to be able to glean from Pastor Lynn’s extensive God given wisdom. I cannot place a value on the knowledge I have gained through the Level 1 course and I am looking forward to being further developed in Level 2! I enjoyed making new lifelong friends through the school who will encourage me as I encourage them and we always pray for each other! The most amazing and unexpected outcome which came a result of the assignments, was that my family became closer together and began to worship more together! You will see why as you do the assignments and if you are willing to allow the fruit of God’s transformation of you to shine!

    This course has equipped me with all I hoped for and more. Every single assignment has been rich and valuable, and I love how they are mapped out. I've grown in dance technique, in my ability to teach it to others, in choreography, and in in my understanding of The Lord and how He works through dance. Pastor Lynn has set up this course so that you gain skill, character and confidence as well as rich fellowship with the other students. It has been worth every penny spent and every hour worked and more. I'm so grateful The Lord allowed me to take this course.

    Level One of the DFH school has been amazing! Not only did I gain the discipline, flexibility and technique I desired, I learned so much more about God and worship! The friendships and lessons learned have been truly valuable and Pastor Lynn is such a wonderfully humble teacher and kingdom ambassador. Level 2 here I come! Onward and upward for more of God.

    I cannot begin to describe the vast knowledge that I have received from this program. Although I have not completed it as of yet, every assignment has brought me to another level. As you are going through the program, not only that you are enriching your skills, you gain a deeper understanding of ministering through dance and feel the presence of the Lord and a download of movement you never though you had. My recommendation to this school is a must that one cannot have a choice not to take whether you are a beginner or an experienced dancer

    Wow !!! what an amazing journey!!! This is one experience that I will always cherish and never forget! This school has allowed me to grow so much! I had to face and conquer many challenges and today when I look back I don’t even recognize myself. My dance improved, I’ve learned different choreagraphy techniques, I learned to tape & watch myself, I learned teaching techniques and discovered that I had a gift of teaching that was just waiting to be activated. Overall I am a better dancer and a better dance leader.
    We had the best group! We really encouraged, supported and helped each other through the year! Pastor Lynn, the level 2 students, allumnies and Renee were also very available when we needed them!
    One of my hightlights was to host a conference! It was an amazing opportunity to serve, spend time with Pastor Lynn and the amazing Allunmies, that came to teach with her. I was blessed to see change, healing and tranformation happen right before my eyes!
    Overall the one word that I can use for this ministry is CHRISTLIKE!!! Pastor Lynn as received a unique blueprint from the Lord! Her Ministry Dancing for Him reflects the following characters of God.
    Humility, Love, Patience, Acceptance, Encouragement, Unity, submission and order!!!!
    Pastor Lynn I love you and I thank the Lord for you and your ministry! When I was desperate for information about Prophetic Dance the Holy Spirit blessed me by allowing me to come across your ministry! Thank you for all that you have poored in us! May God continue to bless you!!!

    In the area of dance ministry, you will not find a more well rounded and all encompassing course than with Dancing For Him Ministries. Having been involved in dance ministry for over 12 years, all research in this area has lead me back to materials written and developed by Pastor Lynn Hayden. With true Christ-likeness, she is dedicated to teaching and raising up dance ministers, and does it with fullness of joy and a beautifully sweet spirit. The knowledge, revelation, and confidence that I have gained through this course has truly prepared me to move on in boldness in what the Lord has in store. There is a perfect balance of being lead by the spirit and studying both word and technique for excellence in all you do for the Lord. The materials are easy to learn and follow, and are presented in such a way that any one at any level can be successful in this adventure. The students in the course are so encouraging, and what a blessing to be able to communicate with so many who share the same passion of dancing for the Lord. What a blessing it has been!

    I enrolled in the Level One Dancing for Him Ministries’ Training School with the hopes that I would become equipped with teaching others dance, but I received so much more. Pastor Lynn has such a warm heart and kind spirit. She trains her leaders with heart that speaks from years of experience in dance ministry. God has used her to impart and teach me about leadership and dance ministry beyond what I thought I knew. Through my studies God has stretched me not only as a dance leader but in character as well. God has awakened gifts within me that were dormant and rekindled that flame within.
    The curriculum is great and it will inspire and expands your understanding of dance. The work load is not bad as long as you keep to the syllabus she gives. She will work with you and is always available to answer any of your questions or concerns. The fellowship and encouragement that is made between the students is amazing. I am so glad I decided to take this course and look forward to level two next year.

    If you want to expand your dance vocabulary and be confident in your ability to teach, choreograph and
    minister then DFH school is for you. The school was all that and then some! My passion (although a fire
    at one time) had reduced to a flame and every book, DVD, phone chat and relationship formed, fanned
    that flame and has become a fire once again. I highly recommend DFH school and I look forward to
    moving on to Level 2!

    This has truly been an amazing and eye-opening experience for me. From being able to understand that the yearning to dance that I had was a calling from God to my heart. Then learning to open my heart and allow God to use me as a vessel to spread His message. To go from the nervousness of an untrained dancer to become a willing and obedient disciple was truly a walk of faith. This course, Pastor Lynn and all of my classmates gave me such encouragement that I felt confident and strong enough to believe in myself. All the valuable messages I took from these lessons help to deepen my understanding of just what the dance ministry means and does as a service in the Lord's House. I have always had the inclination to dance but never really pursued training but, building an internal library from the rich knowledge of Pastor Lynn has proven that when God has chosen you and you chose to obey there is no stopping the gift the Lord has given you.
    Pastor Lynn's classes are so full of information I find myself going back to the videos and books over and over again. I also loved the phone chats when we were able to express and were able to listen to the challenges and successes of fellow classmates. We prayed for one another. We encouraged one another. And we laughed with one another. I feel I have true companions on the road to the dance ministry.
    This is a course well worth the time and effort bringing you to the next level of service for the Father.

These DVD's, books, chats and conferences help you be prepared physically and spiritually. I feel more confident when asked to minister. I desired to get also get closer to God and this course ensures that as well. I love the friendships, support and encouragement that this course is surrounded by.

    I just completed the DFH Online School – Level One. I was tricked! I thought this was going to be some sort of training on how to dance better (it was), how to move more gracefully (it was), how to work with a team better (it was), how to have confidence to step out and dance (it was) – BUT – oh, my, it was so much more! Your heart will change. Your understanding of worship will change. Your understanding of who you are in Christ will change. What had the greatest impact on me was being a part of a group of ladies from all over and seeing how they are fulfilling what the Lord has put in their hearts. I’ve heard their stories. I’ve seen their expression of love in their worship. I’ve prayed for them in their difficulties and they have encouraged and prayed for me. Pastor Lynn has poured her heart into every part of this course. Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of this life-changing “school.”

    It seems so hard to really put into words just how blessed I felt going through Level 1. I came to Level 1 with an insatiable hunger to learn as much as I possibly could learn about dance ministry. Over and over again I was amazed at the revelation and insight I was able to gain through this course. I am so grateful to Pastor Lynn for her gentle and loving spirit, and for all she instills into us personally and collectively. She is a true leader, as she leads by example! My experience of attending a conference was simply wonderful, as I had the opportunity to meet several of my DFH classmates, as well as some Level 2 students. My classmates instantly became my new friends, as though God had simply woven our hearts together for a divine purpose. This class has changed my life, my ministry, and given me the tools I will need to move on as a leader. I can't even imagine how I will feel after Level 2! I cannot wait!!!!

    I am glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone by faith to join and be a part of the Dancing for Him School. This school has changed my mind set a lot about dancing in group dances and for being over our praise and worship team at church. Even though I purchased one of everything from the school you still will be able to learn something from the DVDs and Pastor Lynn’s books as well even when you graduate, because her materials is filled with so much knowledge and to stretch you and to push you into the next level you need to be in through dance. Pastor Lynn, I thank God for you and that you continue to produce dancers all across the world. This is truly your purpose that God have predestined you to do.

    Also a anointing to dance has been imparted to me through the dancing for him school not only that I have noticed the growth in me, others noticed the growth through dance in our church as we minister through dance to the congregation, and minister to each other during practices. All this is because of the teaching that you have been given me through the Dancing for Him Dance Ministry School. Again Thank You Looking forward to Level 2. Love you Pastor Lynn.

    Dancing for him ministries has forever changed my life. Im not even sure how I got here but I know it was all in the plan of God. Being a part of this ministry has caused me to see myself in a whole new light. There were areas in my life that lay dormant because I was afraid to step out into the unknown, the deep waters of Gods grace. This ministry has caused me to go far beyond where I saw myself being and has spilled over into every other area of my life. No longer am I able to linger and be passive in the things God has called me to do. I have been changed, challenged, pressed, pushed, and most of all loved. Pastor Lynn has been a great encouragement to me and awesome mentor. I will be forever grateful that God has allowed me to be apart of this tremendous ministry. Thank you pastor Lynn and all of the DFH family.

    Taking the Level 1 class at DFH was a dose of encouragement for me. It helped me to grow technically as a dance minister and has challenged me to come out of the shadows via the videos, chats and required conference.
    However, this course was more than dance for me. It has allowed me to look at myself and others in a different way. I was challenged to overcome my fears and the obstacles that have stopped me from moving forward in other areas of my life.
    God used this class to do a deeper work in me internally and for that I am grateful. I thank Pastor Lynn for being the vessel God has used to be a mentor to me and the other DFH students over the past 8 months.

    The Level 1 Dancing For Him course has not only changed and enhanced the way that I dance but has also changed my life! I have met many people through the course that will be lifelong friends. The DVDs, books, phone chats, uploads and essays all shaped my thinking but having access to other people with similar goals has made this experience phenomenal. There is so much encouragement among the classmates, graduates, and Pastor Lynn. We must always continue to support each other, learn, and thirst for knowledge. This is the medium for praise and worship dancers, dance leaders, dance ministers, and worship arts directors to have their thirst quenched!

    I met Pastor Lynn Hayden last year at a DFH conference and the experience was life changing. Her gentle, loving instruction the incredible anointing on her life let me know she is a true servant of the King. I purchased the entire curriculum and she let me know i had everything i needed for the school and encouraged me to join. I am so glad i listened and God made a way for me to be a part of the DFH Level one class. It has taught me to be timely, to refresh my writing and study skills and to build up my confidence in myself as a minister/teacher of liturgical dance. Every assignment has been a blessed tool used to sharpen and mold us for our divine destinies. The fellowship, partnership and encouragement from other classmates has been incredible. Its an unexpected support system that has helped me weather the tough times these past 9 months. This incredible journey has only begun. Im sure Level two will continue to stretch us, teach us and shift us into the new season God is planning for us all!

    I never really knew what it meant to dance for the Lord until I started attending my current church 4 years ago. I watched a choreographed dance at the womens retreat and cried my heart out to the Lord. After talking with the dance team leader, who was also new to the church, but not new to dance ministry, I decided to go to a conference last August with her and a few other dance team members. During that conference, I felt a strong message from the Lord that he has prepared me for "such a time as this". It has been an incredible, spiritl filled journey and I am looking forward to the next level!!

I sensed the Lord say to me, “Give yourself to it.” So I enrolled for the next year’s DFH School. Pastor Lynn exhibits all the fruits of the Spirit in her training classes. She is truly a gift from the Lord to train up Dancing Worshipers of Jesus. I was continually encouraged by Pastor Lynn, the other students and alumni throughout the year. There is always access for help. I have grown in technique and deeply in my understanding through word study and application expressed in dance as a means of ministering God’s Word.

    I have always been a dancer in my heart and soul and had been given some natural gifting. For me this gift pretty much went un-expressed in the greatest since of the word until GOD began to speak to me of my call to dance for HIM. Being an untrained dancer and having the call to dance placed on my life naturally stirred in me a desire to seek out training for the arena I would be entering into. I reasearched the Dancing For Him School for a whole year before signing on the dotted line. I was somewhat nervous when I began studiying with DFH in Feb 2013. The course is very well rounded and I have grown in techinque and deeply in my understanding as dance as a means of ministering GOD's Word. Pastor Lynn is so humble, and grounded and deeply nuturing to all of us students. And I have met some of the most anointed and giving ladies in this last 9 months. The enviroment that we have is very rich for growth it gives us that added incentive to push foward and minister in the spirit of excellence.

    This course changed the way that I not only dance unto the Lord but how I minister as a whole. Each book that I have read and every DVD that I have watched and mimicked has enlarged my dance vocabulary as well as my awareness of what Praise Dance actually does for the body of Christ. God has told me that this was my calling and that I will travel all over the world teaching dance, healing , bringing deliverance, and empowering others to use creative worship in dance. For me, it was hard for me to grasp because I didn’t have any experience in dance technique and didn’t know how I could do it, but I thank God for this course because Dancing For Him was God laying the foundation in my life for me to do what He has called me to do. By doing the video uploads and watching the other students uploads really encouraged me to be comfortable with who I am as a praise dancer and connect with other dancers who hold the same passion to minister unto the Father as I do in their heart. Upon completion of this course, I now have a thirst and a hunger to do the will of our Father. The things that I have learned include: dance technique, dance choreography experience, dance vocabulary, a Biblical foundation of dance, experience in prophetic dance, how to bring creativity to praise dance ministry, team etiquette, and just an overall comfort with allowing the Holy Spirit to lead while I become like a child and enjoy ministering before our Father. Through this course, the Lord has given me friends who share the same passion as I do and an opportunity to talk with them twice a month and to experience Dancing For Him ministry myself and to one day have the joy of joining with the ministry imparting the true awesomeness of praise dance all over the world.

    I was inspired to bring the ministry that God was showing me on the inside outside to God’s people. I was empowered to minister the Father’s heart to churches all over Little Rock, Arkansas. I received the impartation from Dancing for Him Ministry in my spontaneity in dance enough to be bold in my gift of dance in order to do what God has called me to do. I have totally submitted myself unto the plan that God has for my life and I just thank you Pastor Lynn and praise God for giving you the wisdom and the faith to be obedient to His will for your life in taking Dancing For Him to heights the you could never dream or imagine.

    Being a part of the Dancing for Him Training School has been a great learning experience for me. I knew taking this course would give me the spiritual dance training I needed to be a better praise dancer. But, I did not know that it would also make me a more effective dance leader and trainer. Pastor Lynn’s books and digital video disks helped me to be more creative with my choreographed pieces, and to simplify and modify dance moves to teach others with little to no dance experience. I especially liked the telephone conferences where I got to exchanged ideas with my classmates. The practice I received at a live conference under Pastor Lynn’s anointing will never be forgotten. This program truly gave me the confidence I needed to dance and teach with excellence. I would recommend this course to anyone.

    I’m grateful to God for leading me to Dancing for Him Ministries. I have gained a wealth of knowledge from Pastor Lynn Hayden in the DFH School. Pastor Lynn is supportive, encouraging, and is available for DFH students through email and chats.

    The curriculum is easy to follow and assignments evenly spaced for sufficient time to complete. I have 31 years of dance experience, but the DFH School has helped me enhance choreography so that it is most effective when ministered. I have learned creative ways of expressing the heart of God through sign language, flags and billows. Creative worship helped me to understand how to coach my dance team to minister spontaneously and look unified. I’ve learned the foundational Biblical truth for God’s purpose for dance. Thank you Pastor Lynn for your obedience, generosity, encouragement and support. You are an inspiration. Thank you to all DFH students for your support and advice. I am truly blessed to have all of you in my life.
