Rooted in the Story of God; Made Alive by the Spirit

But the time is coming – indeed it’s here now – when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

 Imagine worshipers and worship leaders whose hearts have been made alive by the Spirit of God and whose lives are rooted in the truth of God’s story. The Worship Arts program at Vanguard College is designed to nurture the hearts of worshipers and worship leaders who worship God in spirit and in truth. It is our aim to develop your heart for worship, shape your pastoral gifts, and give you opportunities to grow in your creative and musical passions. The learning is engaging, practical, hands-on and thorough.

Whether you come for 1 year or more our goal is unchanging, to develop people who worship God biblically and then lead others to do the same.

EXPERIENCE

From your first week retreat until the goodbyes of grad day, your worship ministry training experience will be full of numerous life and ministry highlights. A sense of community is established as together we discover and affirm each other’s unique call and gifting.  There will be plenty of opportunities to engage in local churches, learn from local worship pastors and ministry leaders, and participate in mentorship and discipleship opportunities. 

EDUCATION

Over the course of the degree, the student will be prepared to leave the classroom to lead a church in worship. At the centre of the program is the concept that worship is rooted and established in God’s story. God’s story informs our lives as worshipers of the triune God. God’s story also informs pastoral worship leaders in designing and implementing worship for the worshiping church. As worshipers rooted in the true story of God and whose hearts have been made alive by the Spirit of God, pastoral worship leaders are equipped to sing, tell and enact the story of God.

Throughout their time at Vanguard, students enrolled in the Worship Arts Ministry Program can expect to:

  1. Demonstrate an understanding of the biblical foundations of worship and our participation in the story of God.
  2. Integrate historical and practical foundations into contemporary worship practices and music.
  3. Embody the call to be pastoral worship leaders.
  4. Lead teams in the creative design and implementation of a worship service.
  5. Gain practical skills in administration, team building, musical skill, worship education, and technical arts.
