Music Ministry

The Sacred Music Certificate program at Seton Hill prepares university and community musicians for ministry in the church as pastoral musicians. Rooted in tradition, students:

  • examine the liturgical and musical norms of the church,
  • learn the practical traits needed to successfully run a music ministry,
  • plan meaningful worship, and
  • become successful performers, conductors, organists and vocalists.

The Sacred Music Certificate is a wonderful opportunity for current music majors, aspiring professionals, or church volunteers wishing to refine skills or find real-world opportunities in service to the church.
