LCU’s Worship Ministry degree is focused on preparing leaders musically, theologically, and pastorally to serve and lead in the church and in the world. As a student here, you will come to grasp the skills of a professional musician and cultivate a passion for teaching other artists—while you learn to lead with Christ-like humility.
In our Worship Ministry program, the professors will guide you through the learning process and help you navigate the challenges of music and ministry in the church. We offer our students private music lessons as well as courses in theory, music arrangement, conducting, service design, band rehearsals, and worship technology. These classes will refine your God-given gifts and reveal those that are still waiting to emerge. You will also learn about the historical relationship between music and Christianity and how that affects the Church today. An internship will give you the chance to see this relationship in action. You’ll be mentored by worship ministers who have served in their position for at least five years. Not only are your mentors well-trained and well-weathered in the ministry, but they also have a passion to share practical, everyday experiences with future worship ministers like you.
