Center for Music and Worship

A Word From the Dean


Worship and leading worship are at the heart and core of the Center for Music and Worship. It IS what we are about. We believe God created within the heart of each person the yearning to worship Jesus Christ as Lord of lords and King of kings. Nothing ever satisfies this inner need and desire except active participation in the worship of Jesus Christ as Lord.

We also believe God's calling on worship leaders includes responding to the demands of a broad, culturally diverse evangelical community. This calling is not based on stylistic musical preference. Rather, it is founded on this principle: When God calls a person to lead worship, HE calls them to meet the worship needs of His people - young and old alike.

It is with these principles in mind that the Center for Music and Worship offers unique and practical degrees, unlike any Christian college or university anywhere. Take a moment to look at our MISSION STATEMENT and unique goals for ministry.

We believe God is bringing Liberty University some of the brightest and most promising students committed to knowing God and leading people in worship. We believe God is going to use these very students to change a generation for Christ.

We invite you to prayerfully consider coming to study worship at Liberty University. Feel free to contact us at 434.592.3875 or worship@liberty.edu if you have any questions about our worship ministry.

Enthusiastically His,
