Worship Program Named "Best of the Best"

by Natalia Kirychuk, Public Relations Writer

Cedarville University’s worship program has been selected as one of the top programs in the country in Worship Leader Magazine’s 2016 “Best of the Best” issue. This is the fourth time in the past five years that the program has been recognized by the magazine for its excellence. 

“I was thrilled to hear that the Cedarville University worship program was selected again as the ‘Editor's Pick,’” said Roger O’Neel, assistant chair of worship at Cedarville. “I am both humbled and honored to have our program receive national recognition.”
“The students and faculty in the worship department make it worthy of the ranking,” said Michael Hoskinson, sophomore double-major in worship and business management. “Not only are the students in our program musically talented, but they also have a heart for ministry, which the faculty helps to cultivate.”

Melissa Martin, a junior worship major and member of one of the university’s traveling worship teams, added, “The professors sacrifice countless hours to build personal relationships with the students and help them succeed. I am so thankful for the way this program has pushed me out of my comfort zone in order to help me learn and do things I never thought I could.”

Worship Leader is seen as a trusted brand and authoritative voice in the worship community and serves churches, the worship industry and academic markets with an editorial focus on education, leadership, technology and theology.
