Music: Worship Arts

The Music Major with a Worship Arts concentration equips musicians personally with Godly character in the pursuit of truth and professionally for careers in music ministries. The courses within the concentration focus especially on trends and methodologies in contemporary Christian music and worship arts leadership. Students develop and share their God-given abilities by participation in ensembles, recitals, concerts, service projects, and ministries. Through these experiences, the Music Department brings the whole person into the learning process and provides for the dynamic integration of faith and learning together with character and intellect. This approach, along with the study of music theory, history, worship music, pedagogy, and performance gives students the skills to become highly effective in their field. Music majors must perform an entrance audition for the Music Department.
