Dr Ingalls announcement

"Baylor has given me such passion for music and the church. [...] I have also had opportunities through the church music department, singing a solo for the advisory board and helping to plan the Mosaic Service. These opportunities have prepared me for an eventual career in music ministry..."

Adam Cogliano - BM '16

"Since I have been at Baylor, I have taken so many classes that have grown me to be the church musician I am today. I feel like I am now ready to go out into the world and share what I have learned. I am so looking forward to taking the skills and practical knowledge I have gained here at Baylor to wherever it is that God calls me next."
