Performing & Worship Arts

Use your gifts to bless others.

Art is a gift that is meant to be shared. At Briercrest, get a variety of opportunities to do this: from musical theatre workshops to leading worship in chapel, our campus community is a place where you can hone your talents.

Our goal is to see students developed not only for work as artists, but for life. Students take a blend of courses that develop their own artistic abilities along with their knowledge of the Bible and theology and arts and sciences.

View our programs below to see how you can study Performing & Worship Arts from a Christian worldview.

Christopher Kayler, DMA, writes about being a classical pianist and finding gospel truth in unlikely places.

The most satisfying thing about Briercrest is that I can study in an environment that encourages me in a healthy relationship with God and others. It gives me a chance to make friendships and relationships with those who have the same values as me.
