Free course on worship with Kevin Bauder

free course being offered this June at Central Baptist Theological Seminary of Minneapolis should be of particular interest to readers of this site. Click here for a video introduction from Kevin.

I highly recommend this course; I can think of few better qualified to teach on this critical subject than Kevin Bauder.

Instructor: Kevin T. Bauder

Date: June 11-15

Time: 7:30am to 1:00pm

Key Topics:

  • Who is God, and why does He deserve worship?
  • Who are we, and why is it necessary that we learn to worship Him?
  • What vehicles are fit to convey worship of the true God?

Availability: open to Students and Visitors

Cost: tuition is free; fees still applies

Instructions: You must register as a student to receive academic credit. Course space is limited; those taking the course for credit have enrollment priority. Visitors may take the class at no cost but must fill out a Visitor Information Form no later than four days prior to the beginning of class.

What is Knowing and Loving God about?

The overall thrust of this class is going to be to talk about the God who deserves to be worshiped and why he deserves to be worshiped. It is going to be to talk about us as worshipers and why it is so crucial that we learn to worship, and what role loving God plays in worshiping the true and living God. After these things are discussed, we will bring in the question of what vehicles are adequate to convey the worship that our God deserves to receive.

Why is it important?

This course is important for two reasons. First, we are made to be worshipers, and thus our very identity is found in our worship of God. Second, worship is so often done badly, obscuring our view of God and undermining right love for God.
