Music and Worship Alumni Spotlights

Equipping our students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth is our greatest joy as professors. Our greatest desire is that our graduates glorify God in all they do as they further the mission of Christ in the world through their active engagement in spiritual, moral, professional, and social spheres. We praise God for those graduates who continue to inspire us. Soli Deo Gloria!
