HIU Makes ShareFaith Magazine's List of Top 20 Worship Schools

Posted: June 26, 2017


Hope International University again has been recognized in the Top 20 Best Universities for Worship Ministry by ShareFaith’s online magazine for the second consecutive year. Schools are honored with this notable award based on five criteria: (1) reputation; (2) facilities; (3) faculty; (4) location; and (5) program offerings.

HIU offers programs to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Music & Worship Arts as well as a Master’s Degree in Worship Ministry. Balanced between theory and practice, our students learn how to design and facilitate meaningful worship experiences and how to serve alongside pastoral staff. Practical skills such as instrumental and voice lessons, leadership of a worship service, training others for ministry, and technical knowledge serve to craft a strong foundation for each graduate.

HIU's CENTER FOR MUSIC & WORSHIP ARTS (CMWA) provides students with the opportunity to impact the world as future worship leaders as they learn in the classroom and in real ministry settings. CMWA students cross the barrier between learning and application through the direct mentorship of faculty who are immersed in full-time ministry.

ShareFaith’s online magazine curates blog articles relevant to today’s churches to inspire and inform those in Christian ministry. The website highlights innovative media and resources that equip ministry teams and platforms to teach with excellence.
