"I had been leading worship for over twelve years. Entering into the Worship Arts program at CBC was a part of God's continuing calling upon my life. Of all the BA Worship Arts programs available, CBC has a more holistic view that encompasses far more than just music - the philosophical, theological, and cultural concerns of worship are considered alongside the development of musical and artistic abilities." (Jason Harris, Belconnen Baptist Church, Australian Capital Territory, Worship Arts Grad 2009)
There has been a revolution in the way we worship as faith communities over the last 20-30 years and through these changes there has been a revitalization of the arts in worship. Recognizing this, Columbia has designed a program that will expose students to the arts as gifts to be used in leading people in worship.
The focus of Columbia's Worship Arts major is on preparing people for holistic worship ministry where students will be prepared to impact their world for God through artistic endeavors.
