“As Worship leaders, we have the important and terrifying task of placing words of worship on people’s lips.”
— John D. Witvliet
At Indiana Bible College, there are certain principles from scripture that are emphasized as we study the vast subject of worship. First, we want our students to understand that God yearns for spirit and truth worshipers (John 4:24). Worship is about God and His desire to enter into a worship relationship with His people. Second, the students will be instructed concerning the role and preparation of the worship leader. Holiness and preparation are the foundation for effective worship leading as is seen in 2 Chronicles 5. Third, Biblical worship must be defined.
Our student worship leaders must know what they are leading.
An effective philosophy or theology of worship must be built upon a foundation. As in the construction of a house, great care must be taken to make sure that its foundation is secure. In the day in which we live, there is a plethora of musical styles and many new voices trying to influence Christian worship. Through the din of the noise, let us never forget that true worship must have a sure foundation rooted in the Word of God.
The Worship Studies curriculum at Indiana Bible College immerses students into the realm of worship ministry, helping students to define their musical skills, their integration of the Christian Bible and theology, their versatility in numerous musical styles, and a thorough understanding of how God’s Word is manifested through music. The Worship studies program is perfect students who wish to learn basic music worship skills, students who want to make music an added focus in their theological studies, or students who wish to fully delve into music ministry and potentially write and produce their own music.
The Indiana Bible College Worship Studies degree is a unique program blending music and media with a heart for ministry integrating the essential skills to prepare biblically grounded worship experiences.Degree Plan Coming Soon
