Music & Worship (B.S.)


Do you sense God's call upon your life to lead worship? Today's local churches need both 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, drama and music.

Our Bachelor of Science degree in Music and Worship Studies offers core music courses to develop your musical skills, while also giving you six core worship courses in order to prepare you to be a biblically grounded worship leader. The program of study also includes practical internships, and the involvement in music ensembles throughout the course of the degree.
