Worship Leader magazine recently selected the Worship Leading undergraduate program and Worship Studies graduate program of the University of Valley Forge (UVF) as part of their Best of the Best 2014 issue.
Each year Worship Leader's Best of the Best issue highlights the magazine's selections of the best in Christian training, education and more. The UVF programs were highlighted as part of the top worship leader training academic programs around the country.
Worship Leader said UVF's undergraduate Worship Leading program provides "A dynamic spiritual environment with multiple opportunities to develop your leadership skills and provides the ultimate higher education experience for aspiring worship leaders." They also stated that the Worship Studies graduate program establishes a solid foundation for students and the "skills needed for a lifetime of leadership."
Department of Music Chair William DeSanto, Ph.D., said, "We are honored that both our worship leading programs have received this national recognition. ... It is a tribute to all our team members who have diligently worked over the years to create these relevant and much needed programs."
The Worship Leading undergraduate program prepares students to become contemporary worship leaders. Students become proficient in voice, musical instruments, songwriting and the use of current technology for worship. This program also provides students with a solid biblical and theological foundation.
The Worship Studies master's program is designed for worship leaders, pastors, missionaries and laypersons interested in graduate-level worship studies. This graduate program is the first of its kind offered by an Assemblies of God college or university. The courses offer historical and theological concepts as well as practical, applicable knowledge and experience.
