What is New Creation?
New Creation MMU 122, a one-credit ministry elective course, is an auditioned group selected for the purpose of representing the College in public relations and recruiting program and to fulfill an ensemble requirement for music specialization students. Auditions for this group are conducted with a view to discovering students who excel in vocal ability, who may also excel on an instrument, and who possess a well-rounded Christian personality to serve as ambassadors for Christ and the College. New Creation members must maintain a 2.0 GPA by the end of the fall semester in order to be included in the spring New Creation Tour. New Creation members must also maintain a high standard of character and integrity to be allowed to join the tour. Recommendations from faculty and staff are collected prior to the tour.
