Disciples Of God Inc. is a non-profit, community focused, Christian organisation seeking solely to serve the Kingdom of God in all that we do! Our EXCEL program was created to give children the opportunity to excel in their relationship with God and others. EXCEL gives children the opportunity to express themselves creatively through music & creative art classes infused with biblical principles, to learn about God through a interactive Bible Study class and to get physically active in a fitness class jamming out to Christian praise songs! All in one! Either in our early learning program for preschool aged children or our after school program for school aged children.
About Our Programs
Our fitness programs are run by qualified Zumba instructors, who have completed the training of Zumba Fitness for ages 12+ but have also completed speciality training and become certified in Zumba Kids for ages 7-11, Zumba Kids Jnr. for ages 3-6 and Zumba Gold for ages 50+, pregnant women and people with disabilities and special needs. We incorporate upbeat Christian songs, to get everyone active in a fun, interactive environment building social and motor skills. At some locations we also run Family Zumba classes for parents and kids to do the class together, creating a special bond as they dance and work out together. Our instructors volunteer their time so that any funds raised by any class is donated to Disciples of God Inc. so that we can continue to do more for Christ in our community.
Our music programs are run by a lady who has studied a Bachelor in Contemporary Music at WAAPA, has many years experience in the music industry and has her own vocal coaching business, Motivation Studios. For us, she has come onboard to teach discounted individual lessons, with further discounts for people with concessions, as well as donate her time for group singing lessons, gospel choirs and workshops teaching vocal techniques and performance skills so that any funds raised from these classes are also donated.
Our creative arts programs is run by one of our volunteers who travelled from Wisconsin, USA, just to be a part of what we do! She has a Bachelor Degree in Art and has been travelling overseas doing ministry work with her degree and gaining more training since 2010. This program is especially designed for kids, to get a taste of multiple art mediums and express creativity whilst infusing biblical principles. It involves a range of different activities such as interpretative dance, drama, art (painting, clay, drawing, photography, graphic design) all incorporated into one term program so that kids can just have fun and express themselves whilst also learning about God!
E.X.C.E.L. for kids has been such a great program for my daughter. It has allowed my daughter to learn such great information about music, art, God and her favourite is the Zumba. It's so hard to find programs that allow children between 3-5 to partake in these activities. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants their kids to be active and continuously learning about art, music and God.
