Samford’s minor in worship leadership is for students who aim to complement their particular area of study by developing practical tools, experience and theological foundations for Christian worship and its leadership. Electing a minor in worship leadership connects students with Samford’s worship community, including the Samford Worship Collective and Samford’s Center for Worship and the Arts, empowering them to hone their musical skills, dive into the theology of corporate worship and develop their abilities as ministry leaders.
