If you are at the Worship Symposium this year come say hi. I will be joining a group of scholars and songwriters on Thursday morning…
What: Songwriters and Scholars in Partnership: Deepening Worship Music through Historical, Theological, and Scriptural Study
Who: Bruce Benedict, Constance Cherry, Eddie Espinosa, Satrina Reid, and Noel Snyder (moderator)
Where: Covenant Fine Arts Center, Recital Hall
There are countless songwriters who love the church and want to see local congregations flourish. The same may be said of scholars as well. Yet how often do these two worlds overlap—scholarship and songwriting? How often do these two groups team up to promote vital worship?
Panelists will reflect on recent movements toward deepening worship music through promoting greater interaction between scholars and songwriters. Songwriters, scholars, pastors, worship leaders, and church members all will find something to be encouraged by in this conversation. You might even be inspired to form partnerships of your own!
