Dr. Vernon Whaley

Dr. Vernon Whaley came to Liberty in 2005 as part of Dr. Falwell’s vision to have the most dynamic worship program in the world. In the last 8 years, the Center for Worship has grown from 89 students to become the 7th largest music school in the country with more than 700 undergraduate students and nearly 400 graduate students. Dr. Whaley serves as the Dean of the School of Music.

As the son of church planters, Dr. Whaley grew up in both North Carolina and Alaska. It was in the old wooden pews of a small church in Alaska when he first experienced what he would later understand to be “uninhibited worship” to God Almighty.

Today, Dr. Whaley is one of the most prolific voices in modern worship. He is uniquely gifted as a musician, a minister and an academic. A practitioner for more than 40 years, he has served churches in GA, FL, OH, OK, TN and VA. He holds the BA in Bible and Music from the Free Will Baptist Bible College; the Master of Arts from Middle Tennessee State University; Masters of Church Music and Doctor of Ministry from Luther Rice Seminary; and a PhD in Music Education from the University of Oklahoma. He has published multiple books and musicals, compositions and orchestrations – many of which are sung in churches across the world each week.

More than anything, Dr. Whaley is passionate about helping people of all ages understand that worship is not just something you do in the pews or on Sundays – it a lifestyle habit, and practice for eternity.

Dr. Whaley and his wife of 41 years are active members at Thomas Road Baptist Church. They take frequent mission trips to Kazakhstan and Germany, and enjoy spoiling their grandchildren as much as possible.
