Course Description: The primary focus of WO 510 is corporate worship. The course is not about a preferred worship style nor is it about a preferred musical expression in worship. The Bible, theology, history and practical application will be the lens through which acts/components/elements of worship are viewed, including worship space, time, prayer, Scripture, and the church’s music. Attention will be given to worship design, worship planning, worship leading, the sacraments/ordinances, the marriage service, the funeral service and other worship experiences with specific needs and foci. Throughout the course, the repeated, prevailing emphasis will be to equip and encourage pastors and worship leaders who are prepared to bring skill, passion and grace to the awesome privilege and responsibility of equipping and edifying the whole congregation as the people of God for its primary, collective act of corporate worship.
