One of the characteristics of a vibrant music ministry is a well-nurtured children’s choir program. We at Alleluia value the distinctive contribution a children’s choir brings to a worship service and the overall music ministry. These sessions are geared to equip a children’s choir team with relevant and useful tools for effective ministry.

Since its inception in 1985, The Northcutt Lecture Series has become an integral part of the academic and spiritual life of the Baylor University School of Music. Through this series nationally and internationally known church music scholars are brought to Baylor University for an annual presentation.

The Hearn Innovators in Christian Music Series is designed to bring innovators in the field of Christian Music to Baylor’s campus and facilitate close interaction between the guest and Baylor’s students. These special visitors may be involved in the practice, creation, or study of Christian Music.
