Music is an essential, life-affirming component of the worship service. It is also present in many of the church’s regular ministries. The Worship Leadership Practicum trains musically-gifted students to use their God-given talents in becoming a worship leader. Students receive training on stage at Church of the Highlands’ weekend services, chapels, and youth events.

  • Learn to lead rehearsals for a music team. 
  • Learn to utilize a variety of instruments including piano, guitar, and voice, all from a foundation of ear training.
