Worship Leadership Requirements

B.A. in Bible and Theology with a Worship Leadership Minor

The Worship Leadership minor equips students to lead worship in a variety of settings, particularly in the contemporary and blended styles, within the church and para-church organizations. It includes both practical and philosophical approaches to music and worship ministry in order to offer students a more comprehensive understanding of the role music plays in worship both within the church and in the world. To assist worship leaders in being integral team members on a church or para-church ministry staff, the minor includes a church education core to equip students in foundational ministry skills.
