In other BCF news, college’s the Masters of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership has received approval from the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). BCF has been a member of NASM since 1997, and the undergraduate program already has the accrediting agency’s approval.

According to Bill Davis, chair of the BCF Music and Worship Division, the NASM approval “places BCF as one of very few institutions in the country with an NASM approved master’s degree in music and worship leadership that is delivered within a hybrid environment (combination of classroom and distance learning.)”

“Throughout the history of The Baptist College of Florida, our Music and Worship program has filled a vital role,” BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen said. “Our alumni have served and continue to serve with distinction.  The Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership affords us the opportunity to build on this strong foundation and prepare the individuals who will lead our churches and schools in the worship of our Lord.  I am absolutely delighted that we can provide a program that is excellent in content and relevant in application.”
