by Victoria Stearns, Public Relations Writer

Cedarville University’s worship program has been honored as one of the top college and university worship education programs by Worship Leader magazine in its “Premier Resource Guide,” formerly known as the magazine’s “Best of the Best” issue. 

This is the third time in the last four years Cedarville’s worship program was recognized for its excellence. The 2015 Editor’s Picks were announced on November 1 in the publication’s November/December edition.

"I am grateful to again receive national recognition for what is happening in our program,” said Roger O’Neel, Ph.D., professor of worship. “Our purpose is 'to equip worshipers for service,’ and we have great students who want to lead people in worshiping our great God.”  

Worship Leader is a subscription-only magazine for worship leaders and organizations around the country. It is highly respected as the premier worship magazine in America. A typical issue includes recommendations about the newest worship music, Christian books, movies and articles about how to be a great leader and worshipper of God.

“I was excited to see that Cedarville was selected, it’s definitely well deserved,” said Alissa Smith, director of sales and brand partnerships for Worship Leader Magazine.
