There’s much more to being a worship leader than what happens during the actual worship service. The best worship leaders understand that the career involves theological and pastoral components.

If you’re answering God’s call to oversee or participate in worship ministry, the College of Theology & Christian Ministry will give you the necessary tools and techniques to bring about hope and healing to people through your work.

In addition to completing required courses in theology, spiritual formation and Christian ethics, as well as the core liberal arts curriculum required of every Belmont student, you will participate in classes that explore the theology of worship, the arts of worship, and the many ways we worship.  Additionally, you can choose one of five concentrations: audio engineering, theatre, design communication, music and video production. All students in the Worship Leadership program also take a lab-based course that offer opportunities for you to play your part in planning, organizing and participating in worship leadership. There are no auditions required for Worship Leadership majors.

Belmont students, regardless of major, complete the university’s general education BELL Core—taking classes in humanities, social sciences, arts, quantitative reasoning and wellness that together provide a classic liberal arts education. All students in the College of Theology & Christian Ministry also take the same core classes in theology, church history, Christian ethics, spiritual formation and Christian life.
