This program of study facilitates an understanding of the Old and New Testaments with an emphasis on exegesis using advanced hermeneutics and various exegetical resources.
Solid biblical training from accomplished faculty with years of ministry experience.
Worship Ministry students are required to participate in local-church worship-team practices and church services at designated times each week of the semester. Distance education and online students will complete this worship-team requirement at a local church within each of their own communities.
Worship Ministry students must also pay a Worship Practicum fee for each Applied Instrumental Techniques course that they take. For the 2021-22 year, this fee is $300 per Applied Instrumental Techniques course (12-15 vocal or instrumental lessons per course). For each A.I.T. course, students may specialize in one area or complete a combination of two. It is strongly recommended that students take only one Applied Instrumental Techniques course per semester.
All students, both on-campus and distance education, who intend to enroll in the School of Worship Ministry must audition with the program director either in-person or digitally. In addition to the 31 credit hours of academic studies, students are required to fulfill the Leadership in Action requirement.

“One of my favorite things about Manna University is the intentionality of the professors and staff members! Growing up, school was never something that I took seriously. Because of this, higher education was not something I felt qualified for. The teachers and instructors here at Manna U go out of their way to truly make you feel empowered. I am beyond grateful to be in an environment full of people who believe more for me than I believe in myself!”
Jesus chose twelve leaders who were from differing backgrounds. Many religious leaders in that time would have overlooked them. Through teaching and training, He prepared them to lead a movement that changed the world. Whatever your call may be, training at Manna U can help you engage in this kind of transformational leadership.
