Music. Ministry. Perspective.
Glorify God. Encourage the church. Minister to others. That’s worship leading, at NGU.
Impactful Worship Begins Here
A heart for ministry. A passion for worship. You’ve got both – and you desire to use them for God’s glory and the good of others. Prepare for a lifetime of meaningful ministry in a variety of roles.
Christian musician and worship pastor, of course. But also, chaplain, composer, teacher, missionary, and more. Explore your calling and elevate your purpose. All through a Bachelor of Arts in music worship studies, at North Greenville University.
What Can I Do with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Worship?
A degree in music worship prepares you for impactful roles in religious and music ministry. You can become a worship pastor, music director, or songwriter. This degree equips you with the skills to lead worship services, organize music teams, and compose worship songs.
You’ll find opportunities in churches, religious organizations, and music production, where you can use your talents to inspire and uplift others through worship and music.
