Western Theological Seminary is pleased to announce an annual worship-renewal event: Doxophilia. Each year we will bring a noted worship expert on to our campus for a week. He/she will be an Artist-in-Residence.

This year we are welcoming Greg Scheer, a widely published composer of worship songs, and the author of The Art of Worship (Baker, 2006), and Essential Worship (Baker, 2016). He will lead chapel each day during the week of March 13-17. He will also offer a lecture on Monday, March 13, in Semelink Hall entitled, “The History of Contemporary Christian Music: From the Jesus Movement to Gen X.”

Perhaps most significantly, he will lead a “Big Sing” on Tuesday night, March 14, at 7:00pm in Mulder Chapel. At this event, we will sing through a number of Greg’s settings of the Psalms — a handful of favorites, and a few very recently composed. All these events are open to the public and free of charge.
