Program Overview

Worship leaders combine music, technology, and the arts with theology and pastoral sensitivity to design services that encourage people to engage with God in gathered worship.

Johnson’s Bachelor of Music in Worship Leadership degree prepares students for not only the practical “how to” of worship, but also provides a biblical and theological foundation that answers the “why” of worship. Students engage in private music lessons, music theory, and music ensembles to build musical skill, while pursuing the study of worship theology, technology, the arts, and pastoral ministry to form a foundation for worship leadership. Along with what is learned in the classroom, students are presented with numerous opportunities to gain hands-on experience leading worship in chapel and other campus events, as well as through internships and weekend ministries.

Graduates of the worship leadership degree program demonstrate all the required knowledge, skills, and experience needed to become successful in worship leadership and ministry.

Every undergraduate student pursuing a four-year degree at Johnson earns a double major – a major in Bible and Theology and a major of their choice, like Worship Leadership. Click here to learn more about the Bible and Theology major.
