Equipping Tomorrow's Worship Leaders


The Woodburn Baptist Church Leadership Academy of the Arts exists to foster an environment that equips singers, instrumentalists, dancers, and artists in the spiritual and practical application of their service to the Church and community through worship and artistic development.


"God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts.

Use them well to serve one another." - 1 Peter 4:10



We aim to create artistic resources that are rich in theology, expression, and mission to educate and challenge believers to a life more fully devoted to Jesus.


The WBC LAA will equip singers, musicians, dancers, and artists with practical knowledge and understanding of their instrument and role as part of worship leadership in their church. Classes will include, but will not be limited to, the study of worship theology, music theory, and practical application of various techniques.


In addition to our instrument classes, we offer one-on-one and small group or private instruction for musicians of all ages and skill levels. Lessons are aimed at further developing each individual student’s musicianship, technique, and passion for their art. In the private lesson setting, students will have the opportunity to work with a professional musician at their own pace to equip them for their musical endeavors.

Rod Ellis

Woodburn Baptist Church Worship Pastor

Voice Instructor

Few things bring me greater joy than being able to see the people of God connect with their Savior and one another in worship. And I’ve never seen a place do that like we do at WBC. I dream of a time when we are training up Spirit-led, filled, empowered worship leaders by the droves. I can’t imagine a better place to do that than here. On a more personal note, I’ve been married to one of my heroes, Jackie, since 1987. We have two stunning daughters, Catherine (Go C-A-T-S!) and Emily (Go Pioneers!) and a dog–Cooper, the son I’ll never have.

Brittany Lloyd


Brittany (Gatlin) Lloyd is a pianist at Woodburn Baptist Church who specializes in worship, ensemble, and accompaniment playing. Brittany has studied for over 25 years and has taught for over 14. She loves to teach others how piano can be so much more than simply playing. In her lessons she teaches skill and technique but more she strives to teach others how to worship (personally and corporately) and how to entertain (both others and yourself). She views the piano as more than a solo instrument and loves to work with her students to teach them to collaborate with other musicians and to lead others through their playing. Brittany has been married to her amazing husband, Seth, since December 2018, and she has a beautifully talented son, Jackson, whose autism has taught her that music opens otherwise thought closed.

Erin Reynolds


Erin is a 2010 graduate of Western Kentucky University.  Since graduating, Erin has served in several capacities with the local church - both as Women's Ministry Coordinator at her previous church and as an Administrative Assistant to three pastors at Eastwood Baptist Church.  Her most recent and favorite place to serve is at home taking care of her and her husband's one-year-old little boy, Oak.  She is excited to be joining LAA as Administrator.  She is also involved with the Woodburn Baptist Church Worship and Student Ministries.
