Worship Certificate

New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, in conjunction with the Georgia Baptist Convention, will be offering a Certificate of Worship program this summer at Church Music Georgia. Michael Sharp and Greg Woodward will be the professors of record for the first class, History of Worship and Jon Duncan will be a lecturer. The credits for this class will apply to the Certificate of Worship. Should the student decide to enroll in the Master’s degree later, the credits can be transferred to the Master of Arts in Worship. The application process for the certificate program is very simple and only requires a short application and undergraduate transcripts. The application and registration process can be completed by faxing and mailing pertinent documents to the music office, which is the first option detailed below.
