Worship arts

Artful worship

Northwestern's worship arts curriculum will prepare you to be a worship leader or member of a worship leadership team at a church or para-church organization. You'll learn to create moving, theologically sound church worship that stimulates the multiple senses of diverse worshipers and engages them in transcendent, transformative worship experiences.

As a worship arts major, you will learn to ...

  1. VALUE and explain the history of each element of Christian worship in the life of the local church.
  2. ENVISION and craft a series of worship services for a particular congregation or body of worshipers.
  3. ARTICULATE clearly and communicate effectively about worship and during worship.
  4. EQUIP and empower other worship leaders and worshipers.
  5. SYNTHESIZE the artistry of corporate worship in service of a single story.
  6. ASSESS the planning, fulfillment and impact of a past worship service to inform future worship services.
  7. REFINE worship through taking calculated risks and growing from both success and failure.
