Worship Arts

There is not another area of ministry in the rich history of Barclay College that has so broadly impacted the lives of students and constituents than that of ministry through music. Today students can participate in Concert Choir, 公元前的歌手, Worship Teams, Private Lessons, 音乐, 剧院, 编剧才能, Acting Class, Sound and Media, Dance Lessons, and Stage Management.

Chair of Worship Arts

Jared earned a 学士 in 音乐 Education from 朋友 University, a 硕士 in 音乐 Education from Wichita State University and a Doctorate in Worship Studies from the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies in Jacksonville, Florida.

Pursuing the Worship Arts degree set me up for success. The music theory courses were some of the most helpful. They taught me all the rules (and exceptions) that I put into practice every week. I was also challenged by taking personal lessons in voice, piano, and guitar.  I was able to participate in leading worship regularly during 教堂, providing real world experience that helped build me into the leader that I am today. Now I’m a full time Worship Pastor and get to do what I love.”
