Traditional, contemporary, or renewed?

“Traditional” or “contemporary” worship? How about “renewed” worship?


Lexington Theological Seminary’s webinar workshop series for church leaders continues Sept. 6 with “Renewing Worship” by Dr. O. Wesley Allen, LTS Professor of Homiletics and Worship.


Many churches focus solely on the issue of musical tastes or liturgical styles in relation to worship. In this webinar, Dr. Allen will offer a different model to shape congregational conversations about the evaluation and renewal of worship, regardless of whether worship is “traditional” or “contemporary.” The webinar is oriented toward groups in a congregation involved in planning and leading worship, such as worship committees, worship teams, choirs, praise bands, staff, and laity.


The webinar is scheduled for 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Participants may attend online ($10) or on campus ($15). Gather a group at your church, go online, and let Dr. Allen kick-start a new conversation about how to serve God better in your worship services and how to make the service more meaningful and relevant for the community of faith.


Register online at You also may contact Dr. Bill Turner, Director of the D.Min. Program & Continuing Education at LTS, at (859) 280-1253 or Instructions for online participants will be sent upon your registration. Once you’ve paid the $10 fee, you are welcome to gather a group of church members or friends to join you at no extra cost.


“Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn and grow!” says Dr. Turner.
