Practice Makes Perfect:
The Disciple-Forming Power of Corporate Worship
Speaker: Dr. Scott Aniol
Friday-Saturday, February 21-22, 2020
Topic Description: Christ’s great commission to churches was to “make disciples” (Matt 28:19–20). Churches accomplish this mission through proclaiming the gospel, through “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” and through “teaching them to observe all that I have commanded.” Most Christians acknowledge their responsibility to make disciples, yet few recognize the significant role corporate worship plays in such spiritual formation. This conference addresses the formative nature of corporate worship by examining biblical principles concerning how Christian discipleship takes place, how the gospel forms historic worship practices, and the role of culture and music in spiritual maturity
