Music Ambassadors

Olivet’s Music Ambassador Program connects students preparing for ministry with the churches to which they are called to serve.

Both students and congregations reap immeasurable rewards as they establish these important connections. Students gain valuable music ministry experience by preparing praise and worship sets for local churches. Congregations hear and participate in worship from the next generation of Church leaders, and meet the ONU students who benefit from their prayers and financial support.
