BA in Worship Ministry

The BA in Worship Ministry degree is focused on preparing leaders theologically, pastorally, and artistically for the local church in the area of worship. We believe that the local church is a vital part of the Kingdom of God and deserves the best of our resources and leadership. We want to give students the tools to know what the Bible says about worship, know how the church has dealt with worship change in the past, know what the church of today needs in worship, and know how to express all of these things in culturally dynamic ways. For further information contact the program director, Jeff Colleen.
