In ESSENTIALS RED, everything has a story – Worship has a powerful one. Consider the influence of just one worship song – Amazing Grace – in reshaping history. Consider how communion, a symbolic action in worship, has shaped lives for 2000 years! Consider how the art and music has led people of all ethnic groups in worship – across centuries. Consider the power of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany. Lent, Easter, Pentecost – in keeping the worship story alive across millenia. Our worship history has much to teach us for today.
ESSENTIALS RED is a life-changing, online, 4 week module course for contemporary and emerging worship leaders with Dan Wilt, M.Min., studying essential values in worship and the spiritual formation of leaders. Packed with media from Robert Webber and others, the course only takes 6 hours a week (10 hours a week if taken for university credit), connecting with an international class of peers. RED is the study of worship through the ages, giving tools for today.
