About NPWI

A unique conservatory design-program where students will participate in a worship band every week.

The goal of the Praise and Worship Program is to provide a creative environment that trains and equips students who desire to be a worship pastor, worship leader, Christian artist, or songwriter for the local church and the church at large. Our curriculum models real world practicums that engage students in a learning environment and that places the band at the center of that training.

  • Results in just one year of training
  • Mentoring environment
  • Internships
