Published on Apr 6, 2017 by Mallory Johnson

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Evangel University music major Elle Steward will present her senior recital on Thursday, April 13, at 5:00 p.m. in the chapel of the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS).

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend. AGTS is located on the north end of Evangel’s campus, at the corner of Glenstone and Division.

Steward’s career focus is on worship leadership. She is the daughter of Ann Steward and the late Stan Steward from San Diego, Calif.

“The worship leadership major at Evangel prepares students for a music ministry position, such as choir director, orchestra director or worship music leader,” said Dr. Bonnie Jenkins, professor of music. “It is also a good track for a student who intends to pursue graduate studies in music.”
