LANGLEY, B.C, Sept. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Trinity Western University announces the launch of Worship Lab Radio, a new online Christian radio station aimed at filling a current void in Christian music.

The radio station is set to go live on Saturday, September 2 by broadcasting campus news and information as students arrive and move into campus residences, and begins regular radio broadcasting on Sunday, September 3.

"We are very excited to launch Worship Lab Radio. As a pioneer in providing a voice for emerging worship artists, we believe the Church will benefit by exploring paths for new worship. In addition, Worship Lab Radio will be an integral tool for those students who travel to Trinity Western University to study in the University's new Worship Arts program," says Scott Fehrenbacher, Senior Vice President of External Relations for Trinity Western University.
The TWU program, already selected as a top program in North America by Worship Leader magazine, has partnered with MercyMe's award-winning lead singer and songwriter Bart Millard who serves as the program's Senior Advisor. The Worship Arts program is uniquely designed to help equip tomorrow's worship leaders, artists and songwriters with the theological depth, musical expertise and practical experience to have an impact in their churches and their communities. Worship Lab Radio provides an opportunity for the university's Worship Arts students to get their music played along with other indie artists looking to impact the Church with tomorrow's next generation of worship music.
"Worship Lab Radio will allow listeners to 'imagine tomorrow's worship' by hearing it today. We expect this new station to be a welcome addition for all Christian music students, artists, churches, worship leaders and listeners of contemporary Christian music," says Fehrenbacher.
