Music & Worship (B.S.)

View Center for Music & Worship


Do you sense God's call upon your life to lead worship? Today's local churches need music ministers and worship leaders to take charge of a multi-faceted, changing ministry. These ministries no longer require personnel exclusively equipped as musicians. They require professionals who have broad experience in worship teaching, worship training, team management and discipleship, worship evangelism, principles of marketing, technology, publishing and producing, drama and music.

Our Bachelor of Science degree in Music and Worship Studies offers core music courses to develop musical skills, while also providing six core worship courses in order to prepare students to be biblically grounded worship leaders. The program of study also includes internships and a multitude of performance opportunities; all designed to foster collaboration and creativity.
