Experiential Worship

How do you experience God in worship? Willfully? Emotionally? Intellectually? Physically? If your worship service doesn’t involve all of the above, infuse it with a truer form of worship. In this course, based on Bob Rognlien’s book Experiential Worship, the student will explore how Jesus’ Great Commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength” (Mark 12:30), can center our experience of Him. From Christ, we learn that biblical worship involves our volition (heart), emotion (soul), intellect (mind), and body (strength). Experiential Worship engages myriad aspects of the human experience to draw people into a more complete, life-transforming encounter with God and create a place where worshipers come face-to-face with the Father. Provocative and practical, this course will equip those of diverse backgrounds and churches of all sizes to build life-changing services that will transform lives for years to come.

BOB ROGNLIEN is first and foremost a wholehearted worshiper of Jesus Christ. A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, he is the senior pastor of Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd. Bob, his wife, Pam, and their two sons live in Torrance, California.

3 Ways to Improve Flow in Worship Sets

Grammy and Dove Award-nominated Christian artist, songwriter, producer and worship leader Rob Frazier presents three elements he has discovered that effectively create “flow” in a worship set.  The primarily focus is upon proper song selection,  presentation and meaningful  transitions essential to creating a musical service of worship.  The three elements are:

  1. Theme
  2. Mood (or atmosphere)
  3. Choosing sympathetic keys

Journey with him as he uses contemporary songs and hymns to demonstrate each of these three elements in a brief and concise video course with study guides for each video.  There are also three short quizzes interspersed throughout the course in order to assess understanding and earn a certificate of completion.

The Key to a Lifetime of Experiencing God

Many recent studies show that there is a deep and growing interest in the subject of worship. It makes sense: Worship is, after all, the primary reason we gather as the body of Christ each week and focus our attention and energy on giving glory to God. Through worship, we encounter our Savior in powerful, life-changing ways.

In Seven Words of Worship, students will experience God through authentic, biblical worship, using seven simple words as a guide. These teachings are amplified by captivating, real-life stories that will inspire and equip the student to develop a lifestyle of worship.

This eight-class course features personal reflections, biblical studies, and videos from Mike Harland, the Director of Worship at LifeWay Christian Resources.
