At the European Worship Institute (EWI), we seek to inspire, encourage, train and network worship leaders, musicians, vocalists and technicians for service in the local church by organizing seminars, workshops and conferences.
Our vision is to support, on earth, the Biblical mandate that, “All nations whom You have made will come and worship before You, O Lord, and they shall glorify Your name.” Psalm 86:9
Jeff & Kathy Slaughter founded the Brussels-European Worship Institute in 2003. After a number of years of holding seminars and conferences in Belgium, the Slaughters expanded their vision to minister in other countries and changed the name to the European Worship Institute. Since its inception, the Institute has organized training events for hundreds of leaders from churches in Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Morocco, Kosovo, Turkey and Spain.
EWI events cross language, cultural and denominational barriers, and offer biblical teaching, practical trainingÂ and opportunities to build relationships with others involved in worship ministry.
