Live Ministry to Churches


There is a problem both inside and outside the Church today. We face the loss of the sense of the sacred and reverence for the Divine. That reality presents an amazing opportunity for the Scotland Music Collective.

In our busy, lost and confused culture, people from around the globe hunger for deep meaning, for the timeless, for the transcendent. They hunger for the presence of God.

By connecting the highest quality of learned, experienced musicians, composers, singers, songwriters, engineers, and artists of today, with the next generation of Christian artists, The Scotland Music Collective can be a part of a reformational renaissance within the Church.

By preparing the leaders of tomorrow, we are positioned to fulfill a unique mission of opening a door for many to the beauty to God.

Toward that end, we will provide an educational platform, a Christ centered environment and training through the best in Christian music, to light the fire of renewal and bring glory to God through the students and professionals of the Scotland Music Collective.

Our Approach:

The approach for this world changing Music Program, is to have both ‘on campus ‘and ‘virtual classes ‘ with some of the best artists, musicians, engineers, and studios Nashville has to offer, in conjunction with the resources we will have at the Scotland Campus.

Just as the Scotland Campus has made a name for itself in preparatory sports education, we are equally devoted to bringing excellence to the field of music education, which in turn will impact the kingdom values we strive to inculcate in the culture of the school and ethos of the student.

With an incredible music program the SMC seeks to become the preeminent institution in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast part of the county.

We are balanced in our approach to all areas regarding the Music Artist, Songwriting, Worship Leaders and training for your church’s Worship Programs.

Balance: Stability produced by even distribution of weight on each side of the vertical axis.

: an aesthetically pleasing integration of elements.

: physical equilibrium.

Who is a Fit for SMC?

We seek spiritually minded students who join us because of their quest for excellence in and passion for spiritual engagement with Ministry and Music.

We seek students passionately discovering and pursuing the dreams God has planted in their hearts. We seek students committed to serving and ministering with their gifts and talents around the world, who can bloom and bear fruit wherever God plants them.

We seek students who desire to be a part of something new, exciting, and aggressively pushing the boundaries of the norms, in order to break through to the hearts of the people longing for an authentic connection with God.

Our Core Vision:

Global impact of the highest caliber through penetrating culture with the good news of Jesus Christ through music, worship, the arts and artists dedicated to serving Christ.

Life Lessons:

The global pandemic has changed the landscape of “normal”.  As a result, YouTube has gone up 30% from kids being home, and Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, and Pandora are keeping the world together in the mysterious way in which music connects us, calms and soothes hearts.

We recognize and affirm this ministry as a God-ordained venture and rejoice that God has brought this ministry to serve at Scotland Campus as a fellow-laborer in this ministry.

We mutually commit to structuring the ministry for the best possible, highest quality, ministry impact possible.
