Corporate worship defines the essence of Christianity. Judaism centered upon the Tabernacle, the Temple and the synagogue, and the early church revolved around the Temple and house-to-house. The church of the patristics centered around basilicas or Roman Church edifices. Corporate worship, when believers in God come together to engage God in physical/spiritual reverence and celebration and hear a message from the Lord through His divine representative, is a biblical mandate in which every believer is commanded to participate. Corporate worship is vital to the spiritual sustainability of the church and its members. However, research suggests that 63% of all churches have not changed their church liturgy since 1947. Research also states, “Churches that have a more contemporary worship format report a greater increase in attendance than churches that have maintained their traditional worship format.” In order to present a worship service that is relevant to the multi-generational presence of contemporary worshipers, we must design a more relevant worship liturgy that does not compromise the Word of God but is understandable and meaningful to a new generation.
Worship attendance is in decline, and you must ask yourself, “Why aren’t sports events and other secular mega-events also in decline?” Why are people not choosing to spend their time with us anymore? We must consider the way in which we offer Christ in a new generation. This seminar will be one of the most powerful and life-changing seminars you have ever experienced. In this seminar, “How to Develop a 21st Century Worship Service: Maintaining the Presence of God While Reaching a New Generation,” Dr. Dana Carson, the Kingdom Voice and African-American Church Growth Expert, will assist you in designing and developing a 21st century worship service that connects with multiple generations.
