Indiana Wesleyan University's Bachelor of Science in Christian Worship major will equip you to lead Christians in worshipping God. While most students find ministry positions in local churches, others apply this major in creative ways within para-church organizations, intercultural settings, camping ministries, etc.
Our program uniquely prepares students with a two-part emphasis. First, every Worship major takes substantial foundational courses which ground them in the basics of what Christian worship is all about. We’re committed to helping emerging leaders think biblically, theologically, historically, and culturally about worship. Second, each Worship major receives skill-specific training in an area of his or her interest (called “tracks”). The four tracks are Music (Division of Music), Theatre (Division of Communication and Theatre), Media Arts (Division of Communication and Theatre), and Pastoral Ministry (School of Theology and Ministry). Additional areas of interest are in the pipeline, so the options are growing! Worship-related ministry jobs are numerous, with the variety of opportunities growing at a phenomenal rate.
We believe our degree will serve you well, if you are called to serve God through worship leadership.
A minor in Christian Worship consists of 19 credit hours of courses designed to complement other majors within the school, particularly those majors that prepare students for local church, para-church, or intercultural ministries. It is also designed to serve those pursuing majors outside of the School of Theology and Ministry who see themselves as active lay leaders of worship.
