The last quarter of the program will be focused on the delivery of the Capstone Project or Recital, followed by a six week international outreach. The pre-requisites for this program include the successful completion of a Discipleship Training School (DTS) and a successful application and audition process into the Masters program.

There are many directions you can take your Master’s Degree in Music and Worship. You can use your finely honed gift to unlock many doors on the mission field… perhaps
going where others would not gain access. This degree will also put you in a wonderful position to work in the local church as a worship pastor, worship coordinator and teacher. Music performance as a career is another possibility from your training.
