The Worship Leadership program at Huntington University is flexible enough to be tailored to your profile, broad enough to build a solid foundation for ministry, and practical enough to provide you with valuable experience.
Our curriculum is designed to build a foundation for worship ministry.
Our courses have been carefully designed to give you the building blocks of that foundation. When you choose to become a Worship Leadership major, you will want to determine whether you will follow the guitar or piano track. In addition, you’ll want to look for places where you can use your skills and implement your new ideas. We will help you get plugged into a place of service where you can do just that. We also provide high interest seminars on a regular basis, outside of the curriculum, to enhance your education experience. Finally, the highlight of your experience at Huntington University will be the summer and fall of your senior year when you will be immersed full-time in worship leadership through PRIME, an internship that is specifically designed for you.
Huntington’s program represents a new paradigm in preparing future worship leaders. In the past, most leaders were prepared strictly as music majors. Much has changed in the last several years and today’s worship leaders are required to be skilled in theology and ministry as well as the arts and technology. Huntington, however, still offers a dynamic degree in church music. Not sure which program is for you? Contact us and we can help you sort it through.
In addition, Huntington also offers a worship studies minor. The worship studies minor is designed for students interested in forming a theological and philosophical foundation for Christian worship. The background and perspective gained through a worship studies minor would be valuable as a secondary focus for the ministry student or for the student who wishes to serve as a lay leader in the church. It is distinct from the worship leadership major in that it does not have any focus on performance skills. The worship studies minor might be an especially attractive complement to any of the ministry majors, the Bachelor of Arts in church music, or for the student who is preparing for pastoral ministry with a Bible and religion major.
