Master of Arts in Student Ministry and Master of Arts in Worship Leadership Dual Degree Program

Bob Brooks, D.M.A., M.A. in Worship Leadership Program Director

The Master of Arts in Student Ministry and the Master of Arts in Worship Leadership provides an attractive option for those students desiring excellence in Student Ministry and Worship Leadership. It will be particularly appealing for ministers who serve in both a student ministry and worship leadership role for their students. In addition, there are a number of dual ministry roles in churches where a minister serves as both the worship leader for the congregation as well as the student minister.

The purpose of the Master of Arts in Student Ministry and the Master of Arts in Worship Leadership dual degree program is to provide Christ-centered graduate level education that will prepare servant leaders with theological, practical, and leadership skills for student ministry and worship.
