The School of Theology offers robust choral and academic opportunities.

Liturgy lies at the core of the church’s being: in its classical definition, the ekklesia or “church” is the worshiping assembly. The study of liturgy is therefore of crucial importance in theological study.

Core courses in liturgics and Church music offer a basic education in historical, theoretical, and practical aspects of liturgical studies. Electives enrich this core, allowing students to pursue greater knowledge of various aspects of the liturgy.

The School of Theology offers robust choral and academic opportunities dedicated to Church music, led by Kenneth Miller, D.M.A., assistant professor of Church music and organist and choirmaster of the Chapel of the Apostles.

The School of Theology Choir
