Jennifer Rogan '16 | Major: Worship Arts with a Vocal Emphasis

"During the summer of 2014, I had the opportunity to intern at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota under Matthew Westerholm, the Pastor of Worship and Music at the Downtown Campus. I observed the spiritual, musical and administrative practices of a successful worship leader and gained experience using multimedia, as well as planning services. Not only was my experience relevant to my major, but it was spiritually forming and helped me in discerning the Lord's plan for my life."
