WORSHIP MAJOR

Invest in your skills onstage. Develop expertise offstage.

To work in a growing church, it takes a lot more than onstage skill. You have to have a solid theological foundation for worship, be a capable music director, be able to build a team, train volunteers, navigate a church staff, and so much more. That’s what we’re going to train you to do.
