Move Beyond "Traditional vs. Contemporary"
We have come to expect music to be an element of the worship in most churches these days, but can we think critically about it? Do we know the rich musical heritage of our worship? How do we move beyond “contemporary” versus “traditional”? What is it about music in particular that allows it to serve as such an important vehicle of the Spirit?
These are some of the crucial questions for the leadership of any church to discuss, and Fuller's Brehm Center is providing a safe place to do so. When you pursue an interest in Worship and Music Ministry, you will study with instructors who are scholars, musicians, and practitioners in the church, who will help you think biblically about the role of music in worship.
