The major in Worship Arts is for those who are called to plan and lead Christian worship. These leaders empower other servants of worship, especially in the areas of communication and the arts.
The Worship Arts major prepares students for entry-level positions in local churches and parachurch organizations as well as continuing the study of worship at graduate school. By the conclusion of this major, students are equipped to articulate a biblical theology of worship, plan and lead a season of worship services, and organize a team of fellow servant artists.
Worship Arts leaders are called to be well-rounded visionaries, and Northwestern Core program is a vital part of the preparation of our future leaders for the church. The Worship Arts curriculum is built on courses in biblical theology, Christian history, worship theory, and artistic tasks specifically related to leading worship within the twenty-first century evangelical church. In addition, students are encouraged to choose electives or even a second major in an area of their particular giftedness.
