A continuation of Level 3, this Level 4 course will be about going deeper in some of the subjects learned in the first three levels, with an emphasis on ministry, leadership, administration and choreography. You'll be incorporating some more practical ministry/business concepts as well as learning the ins and outs of running a conference.
The growth you will experience will be unparalleled. The main focus, in addition to hands on practice and learning from Pastor Lynn's personal experiences will be fostering God's call for you and the ministry He's given. The intensity of the course over the short term will stretch you, but the results of your perseverance will be lifelong knowledge, obtaining practical tools for growth in your own ministry, confidence in your call, covenant relationships and moving forward in your destiny.
School year: January 10 through October 24th

Thank you Pastor Lynn for being obedient to God! Your “Yes” to His Call has greatly impacted my life and has paved the way for where I am today. I am grateful for the education I received in the DFH Online Training School. It is one of the most important investments I have made in myself, my art, and ministry. The growth that I experienced over the years is amazing and I would like to share a bit of my journey.
(Credentials): Not having certified documents use to intimidate me and in 2013, Abba started shifting things in my life and told me to “invest” in myself, which included enrolling in the Level 1 and Level 2 DFH programs. He explained that I needed “credentials” in order to counteract those who asked with ill intent, “Where did you get your training?”, but I knew that it was also because of my insecurity. So, it was befitting to discover that the word credentials not only meant “That which is given credit” but, “that which gives a title or claim to confidence” . This reminded me of 2 Timothy 2:15 (AMP) which states, “Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth”. And as I continued on to Levels 3 and 4, receiving additional certification/licensure, I began to realize that I no longer felt frightened by insincere or genuine inquiries about my qualifications, but embraced the responsibility of presenting myself accredited unto God.
(Relationships): When I came to DFH, it was as an individual, but I have since gained a family! I will forever treasure the fellowship, encouragement, accountability, and prayer that I received throughout the courses from classmates, upperclassman, and even alumni. Likewise, being an accountability partner to someone else and giving them that same type of support was so rewarding. Developing long-lasting friendships with those with like passion helped me to appreciate the significance of building community.
(Art & Spirit): In preparation for my schooling at DFH, the Lord brought all of my worship dance classes, concerts of worship and retreats to a complete halt and made it clear that I would be going into a “cocoon”, figuratively speaking and that by the end of the “metamorphosis”, I would emerge a beautiful butterfly. Although, I have had a fascination with these lovely creatures since childhood and was excited about the upcoming instruction, I was not so sure about the whole going into a cocoon thing. To me, this seemed more like being buried alive rather than ascending. Transformation is sometimes painful.
Within the DFH curriculum there are some common topics/elements that exist among the degrees of learning; yet, each is unique with its own set of challenges and milestones that foster expansion. So, when I questioned, “How can I go deeper, create additional content, and become more proficient?” I found that there were still depths for me to yet encounter. Therefore, Heavenly Father used every assignment for my artistic and spiritual growth. The Ballet and Product Creation lessons are examples.
Ballet I, II, & III all required me to view the DVDs, practice the material, write essays, do product reviews and create videos of me teaching various concepts. Well, displaying the techniques terrified me. And for the Product Creation (formerly “Creative Assignment”), I had to provide Table of Contents, Chapter Titles, Dedication, Conclusion, Bibliography, Biography and 10 pages of content. I was afraid because I had no book title, was worried about not having enough to say and felt disqualified. Holy Spirit used these tasks to expose the root of my problems and as I embraced Truth, healing began, deliverance came and I flourished. Now, in this last term, I am able to present the material from a place of victory.
In closing, Level 4 was not “just” a continuation of Level 3, but the culmination of years of study and the manifestation of God’s vision for this season of transformation in my life. And I can see the butterfly!

I wouldn’t trade my experience with DFH for anything in the world. It has been an incredible journey. Dancing for Him Ministries recognizes that God is calling us to reclaim the arts and renew the use of them to lead others to Christ and teaches us how we can do that through dance. Each year has stretched me. I have continued learning how to be intimate with God, how to expand my dance vocabulary and more technique. Pastor Lynn’s teachings are raising up true worshippers and Pastor Will’s teaching are helping us to understand that our God is a creative God and He created us to be creative with Him. I am thankful to both of them and to God for their anointing. I am grateful for the DFH family and the friendships that I have developed along the way. The encouragement is phenomenal and the DVDs/Books will be useful for years to come. There has been no doubt that I was where I was supposed to be. I look forward to seeing everyone moving forward to the next level and fulfill your calling. You will be blessed!!
I am very happy to be able to share with you my journey at dancing for him ministries I would never regret this decision to be part of this great family .The program has been designed to develop the ministry that live into you and also to propel you to another level ,the one that God calls you to be.

I can say that now I am ready to stand on my own feet and to inspire and motoring others to do the same.Thank you pastor Lynn For this beautiful work and the family that you created.
I highly recommend this school.
It's been a great year. I have seen a lot of growth in myself even from last year. The teachings from Pastor Will and Pastor Lynn have been excellent. It's been quite an adventure. It's been quite a journey. I would not trade it for anything. I am so thankful that I've been able to be a part of this program and to be a part of the DFH family. Being accepted by you all for the whole time it really means a lot.
At this point I fully believe that if you have been called here to Pastor Lynn and to Dancing for Him Ministries your absolutely are are there for a purpose. God's going to do something huge with you. For each one of us that could be something a little different. It could be a lot different. The moving of the Spirit, through this ministry when we all get to come together in his presence like that we always do, I can't live without it now. I am so so thankful for being able to have been a part of all this. Pastor Lynn’s teachings throughout the years along with Pastor Will’s have blessed me so much. I am so very thankful, so grateful for all that she does for us. I am grateful for all of Pastor Will’s teachings. I am thankful for all my fellow students encouragement. Thank you to everyone. Thank you all for your love and support over the years. I would say to the level one and two students, again if you're here, you're here for a purpose. Don't lose sight of that. Don't take that for granted. You're here for a reason. God's going to do something big. God is going to do something real big. Thank you. Be blessed, stay creative, and keep dancing for Him.
