Worship Arts Seminar Series

Trevecca Nazarne University works to maintain a strong spirit at the Center of Worship Arts by providing a seminar series especially tailored for worship leaders, pastors, choir directors and any who share a passion for increasing their knowledge and awareness of historical and biblical Christian worship principles. Seminars encourage students and participants to learn more about the practical application of biblical principles and gain unique and useful insight in the field of ministry.


Trevecca Nazarne’s worship arts seminars consist of a program sponsoring four events and a final project at the end of each seminar series. The seminar series is also offered completely online, meeting the needs of students who are unable to attend but wish to further their awareness and academic background in the realm of worship arts. When students complete the requirements, each participant will be offered documentation of completion from the Worship Arts Center. Participants will have the ability to pay for seminars separately or bundle seminars. Cost per seminar is $300 and cost for full training series is $1000.


Curriculum design breaks down into four courses. Course 1 involves the Theories and Histories of Worship, orientating students in a fast-paced and comprehensive historical and biblical curriculum to ground them in the patriarchal period all the way up to the postmodern era. Participants will have the building blocks necessary to understand how religious models, patterns, modes and historical practices factor into contemporary models of worship. Through learning such principles, students will be better able to adapt and apply religious principles into modern practice.


Course 2 involves practical application and conceptualization of worship in a variety of contemporary expressions of worship in facets of culture and society. Special care will be paid to each period of worship in correlation with modern interpretations and context. Students will be encouraged to reflect on theology and plan worship in their individual realms of religious service. Understanding each function of the Christian calendar as it applies to worship with congregations. Through applying theological and biblical principles in each weekly planning module, students will have the framework necessary to put more useful historical principles into practice.

In Course 3, arts of worship, students will develop a deeper understanding of a variety of worship styles. As students study the historical applications of worship arts, they will gain greater insight into the key outlets filled by the art of worship. Through analyzing worship music in relation to biblical fidelity, sound theology and congregational application in song (ease of performance) students can apply greater leadership skills as part of worship team. This course will form a strong core and basis for applied theology and performance art as participants help others find their voice and inform their choices in applied worship art.


In course 4, the sacred and the missional in worship, students are introduced to ways in which they can provide form and maintain creative enthusiasm as they apply their mission the real world. With the logistical and theological inspiration in the course modules, students will be able to better adapt and apply Christian tradition while articulating the roles of service in church life. Through truly understanding and interpreting the world of worship and its place in history, graduates from the worship arts seminar series will be able to return to rewarding opportunities in discipleships, pastoral care, spiritual formation and worship leader roles.


For the final project in the seminar series, students will incorporate the principles they have learned as they create a project that represents the ministry context of the seminar series. Each project must demonstrate unique and personal application of theology and worship in a way that can be carried out in a worship setting. Students should apply visual and written components to the project. Each project proposal should be submitted to the curriculum instructor within two weeks of completion of worship seminars.
