The Worship Training Center is dedicated to training and facilitating an environment for the creative arts to be expressed in a God-centered environment. The most developed area of the WTC currently is the musical expression of creativity.  It is a place to learn excellence in playing instruments, develop youth praise ministries, empower youth Christian bands and artists, and strengthen youth musicians in the community of churches in the Knoxville region.  Each student receives quality instruction, from a professional teacher, not just a good guitarist, who has years of success at imparting his knowledge to students.

In the Knoxville area, Benjamin Franklin is a well known name as a guitar, bass, drums, vocal, and piano/keyboard teacher, especially in the youth. He has taught in this area for over almost two decades, pouring into the children and youth of this community. Teaching is his "tent-making" business but the vision to expand his private teaching practice into a full worship training center has been in his heart for years.

Because of that vision, the WTC is a place for artists who desire to use their gifts for the Lord to find community with other youth of the area with the same heart.  We desire to promote and help inspire these youth to stay true to that heart, or to help develop that heart. It is also a venue to pour into the churches of the area by helping develop musicians for youth praise teams and volunteer time to help encourage and equip ones who  may not have access to professional teaching or performance training.

Our heart is also to unite the community of young musicians of Knoxville and surrounding colleges and cities in meetings, all day outdoor festivals and concerts, and outreaches. 

Take a moment to explore the many opportunities to learn and grow as a Christian musician, from the very beginner just wanting to connect to lessons to the advanced player wanting to learn technical expertise...from seasoned youth praise teams or Christian bands that are ready to play in festivals to youth leaders hoping to inspire youth to channel their music into the youth group's  first praise team...from a poet wanting to learn how to turn it into a song to a band ready to step into recording a full CD of their originals who are operating on a shoestring budget and want to learn recording skills on a personal computer...we can help you develop to the next level. 

The Worship Training Center is the place to get trained for music ministry, whether it is in gospel music, a solo artist, wanting to play on a youth praise team or to create or develop a Christian band.  It is also there for ones  just wanting to learn how to play the guitar, bass, or drums or  to learn the latest Christian music out there for yourself.  Ben has taught for years with patience and excellence and will give you his all as he pours into you.
