This major provides students the knowledge, skills, and character necessary for leading an effective worship ministry within a church or parachurch ministry. Courses concentrate on providing the biblical and theological foundations for meaningful worship, the development of organizational and administrative competencies in leading a worship ministry, the nurture and care of people, and the technical skills needed in worship ministries (i.e., audio-visual, production, lighting & staging, etc.).
While many students completing this major may pursue graduate or seminary education, many may utilize their training upon graduation to serve in various capacities on the staff of a church or parachurch: church worship pastor/director, youth worship leader, director of children or youth choirs, camp worship leaders.
