Tim Hall - Dean of Music
The Department of Music exists in order to train and equip young men and women for the ministry of music in the local church. This well-rounded course of study combines biblical and musical instruction to make it comprehensive. You will learn music theory, simple and complex keyboarding, how to conduct a choir, how to properly administer a church music program, and much more. The education of music alone, however, is incomplete without the Word of God. Therefore, you will take various theology courses such as Systematic Theology where you will become instructed in basic core beliefs and doctrines. You will also study the Epistles and the Essentials of Congregational Worship. Student life activities and classroom instruction combine together to give you a versatile learning experience.
Bible College is a place where many lasting friendships are made, and your relationship with God can be built with altars of consecration. Thank you for your interest in the Department of Music. Come experience what God has for you in the ministry of music.
The TBC music program offers many opportunities experiences for those who desire to develop their abilities in this area.
