Music often has a central place in Christian worship, whether in the form of guitar by the campfire, pipe organ and choir, rhythmic drumming, acapella congregational singing, gentle piano accompaniment, chant, or amplified band, among many other possibilities. This course explores a diversity of expressions of music in worship from theological, historical, and practical perspectives. Considering music in worship as an expression of and source for theology is a focus, as well as engaging ethical questions associated with congregational song. The course is intended to provide theological and practical skills to equip leaders in various roles to collaborate with musicians in shaping worship. No musical background or knowledge is required.
