Music Ministry

The Bachelor of Music (B.M.) in Music Ministry is for students who feel called to full-time music ministry in the Church. This unique program blends comprehensive and thorough technical training with the deeply spiritual emphasis one would expect from a premier Christian university.

Regardless of the style, Olivet’s Music Ministry program prepares future worship leaders and musicians for ministry in the local and global Church.

Organ lessons are offered for those who are interested. With Olivet’s Ruffatti pipe organ located in Centennial Chapel, ONU organ students have a state-of-the art instrument on which to perform.

Ministry Teams

As a partnership ministry between the Office of Church Relations and the School of Music, the University Ministry Teams are comprised of students who are servant leaders with a heart for worship and a passion for spreading the Gospel across Olivet's four-state region.
