The Center for Church Music was founded in the year 2013 with the vision to equip students for meaningful worship and witness for Christ. Our first priority goes to UBS students who are being trained to become future church leaders and mission practitioners in India. It is true that the importance of music and musical ministry has not been given sufficient emphasis in Indian colleges and seminaries. At the same time, our experiences show that many pastors and theological students are hungry for musical knowledge and skills for their ministries.

Our commitment at the Center for Church Music is to provide the opportunity for future Indian pastors, Christian workers and lay people to learn music for the effectiveness of their ministries for which the Lord has called them.

Our second vision is to train worship leaders. Revelation chapter 7 shapes the nature and scope of this vision. John Piper puts it “When the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever.” The point is that worship of God knows no ethnic boundaries and this continues even in Heaven. For this reason, a multi-cultural and multi-lingual community like UBS is the best place to train worship leaders as a reflection of what a true worship is.

At the Centre for Church Music, we offer courses including Keyboard, Guitar, Violin, Conducting and Vocal. Besides these, we also offer courses like hymnology, church music history and leading worship method. For all these courses, attendance for basic music theory class is compulsory. We welcome you to join us and experience the blessings of learning and using music in ministry.
