Huntington University offers worship studies minor

FOR RELEASE
2007-04-19
Huntington, Ind.—Huntington University’s Department of Ministry and Missions now offers a minor in worship studies, approved at a faculty meeting Wednesday.

“The worship studies minor is designed for students interested in forming a theological and philosophical foundation for Christian worship,” said Dr. Bob Myers, assistant professor of worship leadership. “The background and perspective gained through a worship studies minor would be valuable as a secondary focus for the ministry student or for the student who wishes to serve as a lay leader in the church.”

Unlike the worship leadership major, the worship studies minor does not have any focus on performance skills. Myers suggested that minor could be a complement to any of the ministry majors, the Bachelor of Arts in church music, or for the student who is preparing for pastoral ministry with a Bible and religion major.

The 24-credit worship studies minor includes a four-course worship studies core, a four-course ministry studies core and one Bible and religion course.
