Become equipped with the essential knowledge, skills, and experience needed to effectively lead a congregation in worship through our Associate of Worship Leadership (AWL) degree. The AWL program was developed in partnership with key worship and media leaders from Gateway Church to ensure that the skills and competencies taught are relevant and applicable to the worship communities of today’s local churches. Our AWL degree is designed to provide you with a solid biblical foundation in worship studies as well as practical skills in team building, songwriting, recording techniques, live audio, vocal and instrumental performance, and so much more.
**Please Note: The Associate of Worship degree is only offered at the Southlake campus. Once admitted to The King’s University, AWL applicants must complete an audition 2 weeks after admittance to TKU for acceptance into the AWL program. Once approved for the program, students then complete academic advisement and registration with the worship studies department.
The Associate of Worship Leadership has four objectives:
- PASTORAL: Equip biblically based and Spirit-empowered students in ministry leadership.
- THEOLOGICAL: Teach Scripture and history as it relates to worship theology.
- MUSICAL: Provide students with the musical understanding and skillsets needed to serve in the local church.
- TECHNICAL: Train students in relevant media technologies.
A graduate of the AWL will be able to:
• Demonstrate biblically-based and Spirit-empowered leadership in a worship context.
• Apply sound doctrine and historical context to worship ministry.
• Apply strong musicianship from a primary and secondary instrument to help lead worship in a modern worship context.
• Employ relevant media technologies for use in worship ministry.
