    Donna Renay Patrick

    Donna Renay Patrick

    As Christians we are under divine mandate to worship God in spirit and in truth. But somewhere we have made worship less important, and placed programs, positions, and prestige above the manifest presence of God. This course will take a brief look at the history of worship in the church versus what we see today, and seek to regain the priority of worship, both privately and corporately.

    "I learned more from Carole Brewer's one hour presentation than I learned in six years of voice lessons." Class Attendee "I attended Carole Brewer's "Cooking up a Song" seminar at the ACSI Teachers' Convention. I learned so much valuable information that I am still digesting it. I put several tips to work in the classroom--both in teaching high school Speech and in elementary Spanish, where we do a lot of singing. My sound is much clearer, and Carole saved my voice from being over-extended by the end of the day!" Class Attendee

    The Heart of Worship

    March 7, 2015 - 11:15 AM Room: B2

    Joseph Bryant Jr

    Joseph Bryant Jr

    Over the past several years there has been a significant paradigm shift as the body of Christ has embraced a fresh appreciation for the experience of worship. The expression of worship has always been a part of God’s expectation for His people, although it appears to have gained greater emphasis in today’s local church. Through the study of the scriptures we discover God’s value upon worship, and it seems reasonable for members of the body of Christ to acknowledge its priority and preeminence in the experience of the Church. However, Worship cannot be minimized as an opening portion of a church service, nor a period of music led by a band. THE HEART OF WORSHIP is that it is rooted in the HEART of every believer, not just from the lips, but as a lifestyle. WORSHIP is the expression of MY opinion of God. WORSHIP is MY response to the Reality of God. WORSHIP is MY acknowledgement of the Awesomeness of God. And TRUE WORSHIP must first be Personal and Private before it can be Public and Perpetual.
