RiSE - Clarks Summit University


RiSE is a traveling music and worship team of Clarks Summit University. RiSE uses God-given passions and talents to serve others in every capacity they are able. These CSU students serve at venues like camps, conferences and local churches. The vision for RiSE’s goes beyond worship through music to build, lead and develop others.

Our vision is to build into the lives of students to see God move.

Our mission is to lead students in a lifestyle focused on worship.

Our desire is to develop these relationships and help students prepare for their future careers and ministries.

Behind the Name

The name RiSE reflects many biblical truths including God’s praises rising from His people. The lower-case “i” is inspired by the words of John the Baptist in John 3:30 and is the foundation of the team’s purpose, “He (Jesus) must increase, but I must decrease.”
