If worship is formative, rather than merely expressive, what are the implications for pastors and worship leaders for the kinds of songs we should sing? In this seminar we will discuss why singing is vital for becoming a gospel-driven community (ala Colossians 3), and why we need songs that are more honest about struggle and explicit about the gospel. Rev. Kevin Twit (RUF campus minister for 24 years and the founder of Indelible Grace Music) will discuss lessons he has learned from using retuned hymns and suggest ways to grow a love for hymns in your church.
