Church Music Ministries

“The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” – Johann Sebastian Bach

Program Purpose

Women can have a unique, effective, and scriptural music ministry in the local church. This program prepares the godly lady for useful service in the church, both in the music ministry and in other appropriate ministries. This program differs from the men’s pastoral & church music program in that it replaces courses specifically designed for men, such as Homiletics, Leadership, and Second Man, with courses appropriate for women, such as Church Education Ministries and the Christian Woman’s Ministry. Church Music Ministries majors must pass music major platform evaluations in their primary proficiency.

This degree program is for ladies who seek to serve their local church through music. If you are a young man seeking for a degree in church music ministries please see the Pastoral and Church Music degree program .
