Worship & Music Studies Program

Program Details

The Worship and Music Studies program prepares worship leaders for a variety of ministries within the total program of the Church. The academic program consists of general education; Christian ministry studies; studies of worship/music philosophy, technique, history, and theory; and vocal and instrumental performance. Experiential learning is woven throughout the degree program, with both formal and non-formal active learning opportunities. As the Apostle Paul exhorts in Colossians 3:16, this program includes venues for the student’s spiritual and professional growth and development that will transpire in leading others into a growing relationship with Christ through worship opportunities.

The student who successfully completes this program of study will be able to:

  • Demonstrate Christian character in personal and ministry relationships
  • Communicate a philosophy of worship that is biblical and sensitive to changing styles and valued traditions
  • Demonstrate competence in planning and leading worship services
  • Demonstrate competence in preparing vocalists and instrumentalists for worship leading
  • Demonstrate servant leadership while assisting in a broad range of ministry within the church
  • Demonstrate a proficiency in a chosen instrument (i.e.,  voice and keyboard or guitar)
