Certificate in Worship Leadership

Welcome to the Certificate in Worship Leadership! The Certificate in Worship Leadership is intended for the cultivation and formation of worship pastors in the church. In this certificate, you will examine principles of worship in order to know how to design and lead content for services of Christian worship as well as what it truly means to be a Worship Leader. The non-credit certificate presents you with opportunities to explore biblical, theological, historical, and practical components of worship while learning to reflect on aspects of worship through song. Our hope is that anyone who participates in this certificate will discover new understandings and appreciations for Christian worship and enter into new depths of reflection on God’s revealed beauty and glory.

Experiential learning is central to every certificate offered through Asbury Theological Seminary.  Each module is taught by academically and experientially qualified faculty and professionals who equip you to live into your calling with Christ-like leadership in this ever-changing world. In this certificate, you will learn about the following:

Module 1: The Role of a Worship Leader
Module 2: The Spiritual Life of a Worship Leader
Module 3: Foundations of Worship I
Module 4: Worship Leadership in the Weekly Service
Module 5: Three Streams Worship

Additionally, anyone who participates in the Certificate in Worship Leadership will be given a full scholarship for our Worship Songwriting Experience, an approximately two month program in which you receive a Module of learning on songwriting for the church and participate in a songwriting retreat to collaborate and write worship songs with other songwriters.

The next cohort of the Certificate in Worship Leadership starts on February 19, 2024.  For more information, please contact us at cfmt@asburyseminary.edu.
