Integrity launches Worship Institute

I do my best to keep up on the latest happenings in the Christian music industry, but there are times when certain things happen and I don’t find out about them until weeks or months later.

Yesterday, I received an email that announced Integrity Worship Institute selected Dr. Pete Sanchez as its VP and academic dean. While this is very good news for Integrity and Dr. Sanchez, the first thought that came to my mind was “I didn’t know that the Integrity Worship Institute even existed.” Since I’m pretty sure that I am not alone, I decided to do a little research.

For the past couple of decades it has become clear to me that Integrity is committed to enhancing the way that people worship across the world. The Integrity Worship Institute (IWI) is the training and educational division of Integrity Media. The goal of IWI is to offer a curriculum for worship leaders, pastors and worship team members that will equip them to lead their congregations in worship.

If you have been a Christian for more than 5 minutes, then I’m sure you have noticed that there are different institutes, certificate programs and schools everywhere. In my opinion, many of them are a waste of time. They are not reputable and they do not conduct themselves in a professional manner.

It seems to me that the Integrity Worship Institute is different. Integrity partnered is partnering with Columbia Southern University to deliver courses online. In case you didn’t know, Columbia Southern University is an accredited institution.

I am also impressed with the initial faculty that IWI has been able to assemble. If you look at the credentials of their faculty you will see a nice mix of individuals with experience as higher education professionals, professional music executives  and church music practitioners.

If you are interested in a career as a worship leader or if you want to more effectively serve your local church, then the Integrity Worship Institute is something that you should definitely take a look at.
