Worship matters.

Worship Arts students recognize that people are starving for the greatness of God. Training you to respond, a major in Worship Arts 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.
