On-Campus Opportunities

Worship students have many opportunities to participate in various musical activities on campus. Our campus culture is very musical, and options range from music department ensembles, worship department bands, chapel bands, on-campus concerts, worship events, to groups of students in the dorm who play together for fun. Upperclassmen worship students also often lead worship in chapel.

Off-Campus Jobs

Many area churches use worship students to play in their praise bands and also to lead worship. There are many opportunities to play as well as hone your skills as a worship leader. Cedarville students are in demand as worship leaders. It is the second most requested position in our career services office. Our music department ensembles, worship department bands, and Heartsong both tour off-campus.

Future Opportunities

Prospective students and their parents are encouraged to look online to envision positions and locations that would interest you as you consider a career in worship ministry. Some suggested Web sites include Church Staffing and Church Job Finder.

There is a great demand for worship leaders who are excellent musically and who have a pastor's heart. Both our music and worship faculty and career services office stand ready to help you as you look for a ministry position.
