MNU’s Department of Fine & Performing Arts has launched a new emphasis area in worship arts within the Bachelor of Arts in Music. The new worship arts emphasis prepares students to lead worship in a variety of settings.

The worship arts emphasis combines music and theology coursework, ministry experience, performance skills and technical experience. A semester-long internship will give students real-world experience with a music ministry.

“Leading God’s people in worship is a calling that requires technical and musical skill, leadership and spiritual understanding,” says Dr. Christopher Smith, assistant professor of music. “This emphasis prepares our students for excellence in the task of using song to lead people in the worship of God.”
