BCF to offer a Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership beginning January 2013.

The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville is pleased to announce approval from the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to offer a Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership.

Beginning in January, BCF will be offering the new thirty semester hour Master of Arts degree in Music and Worship Leadership for worship pastors, ministers of music, and other Christian musicians and leaders who desire to reach that next level of educational expertise. "I am extremely excited about this opportunity to assist in the training of today's and tomorrow's worship leaders," stated BCF Music and Worship Division Chair Bill Davis.

According to Davis, the new graduate degree is offered in a hybrid format where students will have the opportunity to continue their studies without relocating to the Graceville campus. Davis indicated that the graduate degree in music and worship includes two components: worship theology and leadership, and musical skills for worship leadership. Students can expect to gain a deeper understanding of biblical worship, worship history, as well as the skills necessary to develop a philosophy for worship within vocal pedagogy, choral conducting, drama, and technology. "The entire program will focus on the needs of the next generation of music and worship leaders," stated Davis, "while at the same time being firmly rooted in biblical principles."

The Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership is the second graduate degree to be offered through The Baptist College of Florida. The first program, a Master of Arts in Christian Studies, had one student graduate during commencement exercises held in May.
