targets those preparing for a combined ministry in
a smaller church requiring a broad grounding in
music along with the ability to relate to youth and

that those continuing in such a vocation would seek
additional training in one of the two disciplines.

which provides grounding in the basics of music
and worship, along with individual training and
ensemble performance opportunities. Music is so
much a part of church life that the music minor is

education for any major.
