Worship matters.

Worship Arts students recognize that people are starving for the greatness of God. Training you to respond, the Worship Arts major integrates three areas of study: Music, Bible, and Media. Our four-year degree program prepares you to become well-equipped for fruitful ministry in the local church, grow as a skilled musician, and excel as a leader who possesses strong interpersonal skills.

Do you seek to grow in your capacity to create opportunities for a gathered church to encounter Him? Your passion for His word and creative spirit matter. Download the Music Division Catalog to see available majors, course descriptions, and program information.
