Worship Theology Boot Camp
New session coming May 24/25, 2024!
WHAT IS IT??
An evening and morning of teaching on the Theology of Christian worship with Dr. Johnny Markin (Worship Studies, IWS). A systematic look at the topics that answer leadership questions about why we gather for worship and why we do what we do... when we do! This is a foundational part of being able to shape services and set vision for your church's approach to gathering.
WHO IS IT FOR??
Open to all who are involved in or interested in the worship of the church: leaders, musicians, pastors, elders, chapel volunteers... or congregants who want deeper biblical study in a topic that gets overlooked for those who aren't involved directly in worship ministry.
BONUS: This material formed the core of the Worship 101 course at Trinity Western University as part of their Worship Arts undergraduate degree. If you are currently enrolled in worship or biblical studies elsewhere, check with your school about earning course credit for these sessions!
