Kingdom Building in Worship

“[In creating worship,] pastors are...engaged in “world-making,” a task that is much more elemental and urgent than the “therapeutic” and “managerial” tasks [of pastoral ministry].” ~Walter Brueggeman

Description: Sundays are relentless.  Worship happens every...single...week. It is a spiritual, cognitive, emotional, and sensory experience. But without careful planning, worship can easily become stale, unimaginative, and bland.  This seminar is designed for anyone who has a role in planning worship: pastors, music leaders, lay ministers.  We will use both presentations and workshop components to support attendees in developing a process for planning worship that is meaningful, Christ-centered, cohesive, thoughtful, and sensitive.  


Cindy Laprade Lattimer has been co-pastor at Stone Church of the Brethren in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania for two years. She has also served as a hospital chaplain, has coordinated National Youth Conference and workcamps for the Church of the Brethren, and has been on the Annual Conference worship planning team.

Marty Keeney is a retired psychiatrist who has been Minister of Music at Stone Church since 2008.  He has brought his love of music and his desire to engage with people to this work.

Loren Rhodes is Professor of Information Technology and Computer Science at Juniata College. He has been Organist and Accompanist at Stone Church since 2008. He is also currently serving the denomination on Standing Committee.
