Undergraduate Worship Ministry Certificate

Undergraduate New Testament Backgrounds Certificate

Become empowered for effective worship ministry.

This six-course certificate program provides the student with both the spiritual and practical background for effective ministry in a worship setting. Upon completion, the student will have a broad understanding of one’s spiritual service of worship to God as an individual and as a worship ministry. Students will choose between a Messianic Leadership track focusing on incorporating aspects of Jewish traditions and music into worship and a Christian Leadership track focused on developing participatory, spirit-led worship into the ministry’s services and community.
