Introducing the Center for African American Worship Studies at Trevecca
It is in the spirit of a holistic approach to ministry training that Trevecca joins with strategic African American leadership across the country to establish Trevecca’s new Center for African American Worship Studies. The Mission for the Center for African American Worship Studies is to train and equip worship leaders to disciple and nurture local church ministries into thriving, healthy congregations. In the process, we seek to help develop local church assemblies into Christ-honoring, thriving, biblical, community sensitive congregations. This new center is to support congregations, through the equipping of dynamic, gifted and talented students for spiritual leadership and service in church congregations within multiple denominational contexts around the world. Currently, only about 68 U.S. universities offer some type of doctoral-level program in African American studies. The Center for African American Worship Studies at Trevecca is the only college, university, seminary or divinity school offering a worship studies workshops, boot camps and degree programs exclusively focusing on equipping leadership for church congregations.
