The Church Music major at Indiana Wesleyan University is designed to foster the development of excellent musicians with pastoral hearts who demonstrate a passion for the ministry of the local church.

In addition to being accomplished musicians in their own right, our faculty members have served local churches of all sizes, denominations, and worship styles throughout the United States. In addition, they continue to be actively engaged in ministry positions ranging from worship leader to church consultant.

You will be taught and mentored by those who have experienced what they are teaching, giving you insights and instruction not found in textbooks.
