Why study Worship Ministry at Crown?

Serve Others Through Music

Apply the fundamentals of music, music performance, and worship technology.

Rich Foundation of The Bible

Program puts biblical interpretation, discipleship, and church leadership first with courses centered around Theology and Ministry.

Mentorship Opportunities

Students develop their understanding and skills through study and leading worship for the campus community and beyond under the expertise from trained worship leaders.

I have the opportunity to not just be in a caring community, but a community that fosters the same values and faith. There are so many different perspectives here from students and professors, and it creates so many opportunities to grow.

Being at Crown makes you want to stay at Crown for the rest of your life; but being at Crown also gets you excited for what God is preparing you to do after college, too.
