Co-Keynoter Russell Yee

“Worship Educationally ~ Educate Worshipfully” is the theme for the 2012 Korean Worship and Music Conference, July 16-19 on the Columbia Seminary campus.
“We will look at ways Asian American churches can reclaim the integrative nature between the educational potency of worship and the worshipful spirituality of teaching,” says Paul Huh, CTS assistant professor of worship and director of Korean American Ministries.
Through three keynote presentations, three practical seminars, and four inspirational worship services, participants will discover creative and meaningful ways to engage in ministry in which worship can be transformative and educational, and education can be an extension of worship.
Keynote presenters are Timothy Son, assistant professor of Christian education and youth ministry at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary; Kathy Dawson, CTS associate professor of Christian Education; and Russell Yee, adjunct professor at Fuller Theological Seminary.
The conference sessions are offered in both Korean and English.
The program fee is $150 for the four-day event – which begins Monday July 16 and concludes Thursday July 19. To register, click here.
To celebrate the third and final year of “Confluence,” an educational research project for Asian American congregations, this year the Korean Worship Conference and the Confluence Project are holding their conferences as a combined event.
“Our aim is to accentuate the inherent meanings of ‘confluence’ –the merging of two or more bodies of water into a single unified stream,” Huh says.
