    40/20 Training


    Audience: Adults (Teachers, Choir Directors)

    40/20 Rule

    It is important to implement 40/20 at the beginning of every choir rehearsal. The purpose of the 40/20 time is to

    1. Build relationships
    2. Keep morale high
    3. Build momentum
    4. Deconstruct any negativity
    5. Introduce a Bible lesson, inspirational moment, or devo aka devotional


    Simply put 40/20 is just a break down of an average 60 minute class. It's proven, using the first 20 minutes to build momentum will make the next 40 minutes even more productive. If your class time is less than 60 minutes, you can adjust the rule to fit your situation.

    Efficacy in youth ministry requires a unique combination of authenticity, integrity and the ability to be current without compromise. Alphaeus Anderson has proven to be effective in youth music ministry, not just evidenced by Stellar Award wins or Dove Award nominations, but by sustained interest of young people and the spiritual growth in their lives. I often tell people pursuing careers in music industry that you should never take advice from people who have not attained whatever it is you are trying to achieve, but to look to someone who has marked and sustained success in the area you are trying to grow to. Alphaeus Anderson has set a standard for youth music ministry and is someone I consider a formidable expert in this area.
