One of the founding principles of Visible Music College follows Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s idea of the “visible community,” coming straight from his work, The Cost of Discipleship. We at the college desire to build a strong Visible Community, one centered on discipleship, worship, life together, and community service. This course is a focused way to help bring these components together for all Visible students.
One of Visible’s primary objectives is for students to take personal responsibility for professional growth and development while attending college. Students should graduate with a professional portfolio of work related to their major and priming future opportunities in finding gainful employment in a meaningful ministry and career. Students will attend weekly class sessions to learn about various aspects of professional growth and development. Class sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 12:30 pm-1:20 pm CST/CDT.
Visible is a unique community in that we literally invest in each other peer to peer, staff to student, community member to community member. You're never a number here and we do all we can to help you grow.
Each semester, students enrolled in Visible Community are required to serve 10 hours in local community service. These serving opportunities are to be 1) outside the walls of Visible Music College, 2) unpaid, and 3) outside the normal flow of your local church setting (i.e., not worship team, youth ministry, etc).
