Earn an award-winning undergraduate degree in worship at Indiana Wesleyan University!

Tired of looking at the “one size fits all” worship programs of Christian colleges? Plenty of schools focus on producing leaders and worship services that look alike. At Indiana Wesleyan University, we don’t focus on the “new status quo” in worship and we don’t create cookie-cutter leaders. Instead, we help students think deeply and prayerfully about their unique contribution to worship leadership. Our graduates are able to design and lead all aspects of corporate worship that are biblically faithful and culturally relevant to each given context. In recognition of our outstanding reputation, our Christian Worship major was awarded the “Editor’s Pick Best-of-the-Best Award” by Worship Leader magazine in 2013. 

If you believe God is calling you to worship leadership, we have a place for you! We’d love to have you as a part of the “Worship Family” at IWU.
