Church Music

Biblically driven music

Do you have genuine musical ability and a desire to serve the Lord through a sacred music ministry? Because Christ-honoring music is an essential part of worship, Maranatha’s caring, high-caliber music instructors are dedicated to teaching students to develop their God-given abilities for ministry in the local church. Courses such as Harmony 1 through 4, Hymnology, and Music in the Local Church will give you the needed skills to integrate scripture, music, instruments, and voice into worship services. In addition to excellent academic training, you’ll benefit from active participation in area church music and opportunities to participate in Maranatha’s choirs, band, orchestra, and ensembles. The Church Music minor is available to students in a non-music major.
