Frontline is an auditioned team of OCC students who travel nationwide, leading worship at churches and youth events. The team also performs concerts and provides worship team training in churches. From leading worship in chapel services to traveling during the school year and over the summer, Frontline has led thousands of people in dynamic worship experiences.
As an educational tool for students, Frontline provides unparalleled training experience for worship leadership and pastoral ministry.
