What is Proskuneo Worship Institute?

Proskuneo Worship Institute is a five day intensive for people who need to make space for their worship and their art. We want to give worshipers an opportunity to get away from their “normal” and be in a place with other visual artists, musicians, worship leaders, dancers and those who just love to worship! We will offer Biblical teaching, worship in a diverse community, masterclasses in various art forms (songwriting, worship leading, art, etc.), and a space to just breathe.

What is different for PWI 2021?

Covid-19 has changed a lot of things in our world. We are planning to hold PWI 2021 in-person. We will keep an eye on the world situation and make changes to this decision as necessary. If necessary, we will host this PWI via Zoom or another online venue. Either way, PWI will happen!  (Note: If we decide to meet in person, there will not be an online option.)

Who can apply for PWI?

Anyone who is 16 years of age or older can apply for PWI.

When and how do I pay my tuition for PWI?

To apply for PWI 2021, you will need to submit a $100.00 non-refundable registration fee at the time of application. (Deadline for application is June 15, 2021.)
Final payment for PWI 2021 ($200.00) is due by July 1, 2021.  (Total cost for PWI is $300.00)

As soon as you apply and pay the registration fee, you will be sent an invoice via PayPal for the remainder of what is due ($200 plus PayPal fees). Please do not pay this invoice until July 1. By that date we will know if we are meeting in person or online. If we meet in person, you will owe the remainder at that time. If we meet online, your registration fee will serve as your full payment.

You can pay the PayPal invoice by debit/credit card. If you do not wish to pay through PayPal, you can send a check or money order to:
Proskuneo Ministries
PO BOX 1237
Clarkston, GA 30021

What other expenses might be involved?

Your transportation to PWI is not included. If you are flying in, you may need to purchase meals prior to arriving at PWI and prior to your departure following PWI. Extra snacks will also be your responsibility. We try to accommodate most special dietary needs (i.e. gluten-free, lactose intolerant), however in some cases you may need to bring some food to supplement what we can provide.


All students and some staff will be staying at Camp Westminster in Conyers, GA. (Lodging is included in your tuition.)

*Please note that if you are from the local area, we will still require you to stay at the campground with us for the purpose of building a worshiping community. We ask that you not plan to be at other events (including church services) during the retreat.


Meals are included in your tuition and will be provided from dinner on Wednesday, July 28 – lunch on Sunday, August 1.
