Teacher: Dr. Craig Gilbert
Topic: Being Honest. The challenges of “authentic” worship.
It is a fairly common comment these days: “We want to have really authentic worship.” or “We are looking for a church where the worship is really authentic.” As a worship leader and planner I have to ask if anyone actually knows what “authentic” worship is, what it looks and sounds like, or really, what does “authentic” even mean? Or is this one of those, “I’ll know when I see it” kind of things? And if we do get to a definition, are ready to completely, honestly, step into leading “authentic worship in our churches? Join me for a one hour deep dive into this desire for authentic worship and maybe even some practical approaches to bringing it to life.
