Music has become an integral part of Christian worship and as a rich heritage of worship, there is the need to offer some seminarian training for those who have this gift and have been called by God to contribute to Christian worship true music.
Powerful Christian music may not always be godly just as a musician singing gospel songs and leading worship in the house of God may not be spirit led.
This calls for Gospel Musicians Training that combines theology with music to make musician fully informed to better serve the church and the Christian faith.

Music is a vehicle used by the Holy Spirit to ignite and connect worshipers with divinity.
Gospel musicians play a pivotal role in the ministration of the gospel. Their spirit uplifting music, which sometimes gives assurance, hope, and speaks to our souls is based on God’s word, direction, and message for today’s generation of worshipers.
However, apart from these vessels possessing the gift of singing which they use to contribute to the service to God during church services, and other Christian events, there is the urgent need for the Chrisitan family, theological seminaries, and the clergy to reconsider the need to build a curriculum for gospel artists.
Just as pastors often receive their calling and head to various pastoral schools for training and direction, it is time for the Christians and the Christian faith to pay attention to the spiritual training and upbringing of musicians who God is using and intends to use to expand his kingdom and reach the corners of the earth through gospel music.
Trained men of God, are transformed and made ready for the field to win souls for Christ, so must gospel musicians go through some form of rigorous training in addition to their calling as musicians.
One key reason for this call is that not all gospel artists understand the practice of worship and prayer, the ministry of music in Christianity, music as a theological expression among others.
A diploma or a degree in Worship Music Ministry can elevate today’s gospel musicians, singing band members of various churches, and music masters or choirmasters to a new all-time level of spirituality, understanding of their central role during Christian service.
This training and education for gospel singers and those who minister songs at church on regular basis would provide practical training that goes beyond their raw talent and immerse them in the connection between pastoral work and singing, theological dimensions of worship leadership.
This training would also help examine issues relating to the planning and implementation of worship on the Lord’s Day (Sunday or Sabbath) in various Christian churches and make services better than they are performing today.
