As a Worship Leadership major at Huntington University, you will develop an understanding of true worship from a biblical and theological base – to worship in spirit and in truth. Huntington’s program is comprehensive, exploring traditional, contemporary and emerging worship styles. You will learn how to lead and facilitate meaningful corporate worship experiences that are both culturally sensitive and theologically grounded.
Getting Plugged In
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.
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.
A Flexible Degree
Our worship training program offers a unique combination of ministry leadership preparation and specialized skill development in music and multimedia. The program 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 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, 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 music, or for the student who is preparing for pastoral ministry with a Bible and religion major.
