Course Description

This course is designed to motivate and equip pastors and worship leaders to develop worship ministries in local churches that are biblically based, bring glory to God, are full of both reverence and joy, are a delight and pleasure to God and His people, and are vital parts of an overall approach to ministry and church growth. In this course we will take a biblical, historical, and contemporary look at the Regulative Principle of Worship. The course is presented in a format that combines lecture and discussion utilizing the participation of the students as well as the professor. Students will leave the class with a theological and biblical foundation for corporate worship in a local congregation, as well as practical helps in planning and leading worship services that are excellent in quality, culturally relevant, and full of both awe and celebration.
