Music Ministry

For more than 90 years Mount Olivet has placed great emphasis on its music ministry and programs.  With its reputation for excellence, the music department holds a long standing tradition and is committed to extending exceptional musical experiences to all. 

Whether it is in a youth choir or instrumental ensemble, a private music lesson or in Senior Choir, you cannot walk the halls of Mount Olivet without hearing music being made.  We understand that music helps to bring us closer to God and rejoice in the time and talent of many individuals committed to sharing in this ministry.

Regardless of your life journey or the path you choose, we welcome you in friendship and fellowship to Mount Olivet Church...a place to worship that incorporates the beauty of the spoken word and the music you have come to love.

Please select an area of music ministry that you are interested in from the list on the left or contact Director of Music, Beverly Claflin by Email or 612.767.2263 for additional information.
