MWS2300 Worship Ministry Dynamics

Course Overview

Educational Level: Lower undergraduate, Associate
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Naomi Montiel

Course Description:

Students will define their philosophy of worship ministry, explore and apply effective leadership strategies, design an efficient and healthy personal and professional time management plan, design a team leadership structure for a worship ministry, develop a worship ministry budget, and explore effective strategies for managing change and crisis in ministry.

How This Course Benefits Students:

Career and volunteer worship leaders are usually gifted musicians but many lack leadership and organizational skills required to serve on a church staff. This course provides practical application assignments in organizational leadership, fiscal responsibilities, personal and professional self management, and relational leadership experiences.

Why This Course Is Important:

Leadership, organizational, pastoral, and relational skills are required for an effective worship leadership career. Many current or prospective worship leaders have focused their personal development upon skills related to music singing, playing instruments, song writing, etc. This course provides opportunities for practical application of skills required of leaders in full-time, bi-vocational, or volunteer worship ministry.
