Jordan Cox: Alumni Success Story


For Jordan Cox, teaching music to high school students is more than technique and theory – it’s relational.
The Cape Central Director of Choirs cares for the musical growth of each member of every one of his choirs, including concert, women’s, men’s and treble ensembles. The time and excellence invested into the students’ lives has not gone unnoticed. Since beginning his position in 2012, Cox has been named department chair and received the District Director of the Year award from the Missouri Chorale Directors Association.

This same commitment carries over to Fruitland Community Church, where he leads worship every Sunday. As a member of SpiritWing, Chorale, Chamber Singers, Allusion, mbu Ringers and Closer during his time at MBU, Cox was prepared to lead worship and students into further discovering a passion for music.

“My time at MBU gave me the skill and learning opportunities to get into the public school classroom and to where I am,” said Cox.

In the classroom and community, Cox uses relationships to empower others to treasure music and succeed in life.

A story of shining on.
