This winter, I’ll be teaching an Introduction to Christian Worship course at Christ the King. Below is my tentative course outline. I’m open for revisions, additions and/or subtractions. I’d appreciate any thoughts that anyone has.
(I’m especially looking for a better course title than “Intro to Christian Worship.”)
What is Worship?
Foundations for Christian Worship
Individual vs. Corporate Worship
Common Conceptions for Worship (Classroom, Temple, Variety Show, etc.)
Paradigm for Christian Worship (Hebrews 12)
Home Assignment – Read a paper by Richard Pratt on the Regulative Principle
Worship the Way that God Wants (Regulative Principle explained and applied)
Elements of Worship
Spirit-Filled Worship (John 4)
The Role of Holy Spirit – the Worship Leader
