Music & Worship at Otterbein

Music at Otterbein is presented with two goals in mind—worship & outreach. Each Sunday & during special services, we try to present the highest quality music that will inspire & encourage our congregation to worship God in a relevant & meaningful way. Our desire is to “create an atmosphere where worship has the opportunity to happen.” It is up to each individual to make the decision to worship God, but we in the music department want everyone who attends a service to be drawn into worship by music that is of the highest quality & utmost integrity. We emphasize singing as a major part of our worship, but realize that worship is truly an all-encompassing act that relates to the other parts of our services, as well as the way we live our daily lives.
