His most recent educational accomplishment, the completion of a Doctor of Worship Studies degree from the Robert E. Webber Institute of Worship Studies in Jacksonville, Florida has given him a passion for the study of the vast subject of Christian worship. Using his many years of experience and diverse educational background, Dr. Anderson recently developed a new degree plan at Indiana Bible College. The Bachelor of Arts in Worship Studies with a Minor in Biblical Studies is relevant for the student interested in developing their music/worship ministry. His life of ministry and educational experience have prepared him to train and develop music/worship leaders for the “important and terrifying task of placing words of worship on people’s lips”.
