Conference Description

The Reformation Worship Conference exists to encourage the church to remember her Reformation heritage, particularly as it concerns biblical, God-centered worship. The annual conference will seek to draw gifted scholars and pastors who are able to lead pastors, elders, seminarians, music directors/musicians, and congregants to a fuller understanding of the theology and practice of reformed worship. This three day conference will include multiple lectures and seminars during the day and worship services in the evenings, providing a faithful expression and model of Reformed worship for all who attend. Our prayer is that this annual conference will serve as a catalyst to bring our churches back to their Reformed roots in worship, where Reformed theology informs Lord's Day worship and is not divorced from it.
