The Shape of Discipleship in the Contemporary Worship Movement

This seminar explored the fascinating story of how the Contemporary Worship Movement has reshaped worship practices, with particular attention on the theme of discipleship.

Over the past forty years, the Contemporary Worship Movement has reshaped worship practices in a wide variety of regions, denominations, and cultures. A recognized movement emerged through the influence of hosts of people, institutions, and cultural factors, including songwriters, congregations, publishing companies, educational institutions and more. This seminar explored this fascinating story, with particular attention on the theme of discipleship. What examples of faithful discipleship stand out in this movement? What challenges to discipleship have participants in this movement experienced? Most crucially, what does the shape of Christian discipleship look like today for industry executives, songwriters, worship leaders, pastors, and—above all—contemporary worshipers of all kinds?
