Worship Arts Rehearsal Studios Project
Worship Arts Rehearsal Studios Project honoring Jerry Franks
In the Fall of 2016, Grace College reimagined its music program and launched a bachelor’s degree in worship arts with the goal of training students to serve in the local church as worship leaders and pastors. Grace’s worship arts program equips students to think like theologians, labor like artists, and shepherd like pastors.
The worship arts program resides in the lower level of the William Male Center and currently does not have dedicated rehearsal space. Our students are required to study and rehearse voice, piano, guitar, or percussion, and building rehearsal studios for them will be crucial for the ongoing success of the program. The rehearsal facility will be in use year-round for our current students as well as high school students attending summer worship camps.
You know the value of the work that happens in the rehearsal studio for musicians.
In 2022, the Jerry Franks project expanded to include a newly established scholarship honoring Jerry’s legacy. This scholarship will be given annually to a Grace student pursuing a degree in worship arts.
Will you partner with us as we seek to add this crucial space and provide scholarships for students to continue the legacy of music at Grace?
