Develop Skills for Multiple Ministry Roles

Churches and para-church organizations are looking for leaders that can take on various jobs in ministry. Graduates of the double Ministry and Music program will have the greatly needed training and skills to step in and serve.

A Robust New Double Major

A Ministry major with an emphasis in Worship and Creative Arts, combined with a Music major with an emphasis in Music Ministry, provides both the depth of training in music performance, music technology, and music theory necessary to lead music and worship, as well as a breadth of courses in Bible, theology, and leadership needed to lead and minister with confidence and skill.

Two advisors, one in Music and one in Ministry, will walk alongside students from course selection, to getting involved in on-campus worship and leadership opportunities, to finding internship opportunities and employment. Our goal is to transform the lives of students who will in turn transform lives of countless others through ministry and music.
