Hey, IWS (where I’m currently finishing up my Master’s degree) got some props from Worship Leader magazine:


Theological graduate school makes magazine’s 2008 Editor’s Pick in worship education

ORANGE PARK, Fla- In the October 2008 issue of Worship Leader Magazine, The Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies (IWS) was featured as one of the top educational programs that influenced Christian worship in the past calendar year.  The designation was awarded by the Worship Leader editorial team and listed in the “Buyer’s Guide: Best of the Best” issue.

IWS was the only degree granting institution to be honored by the publication, which cited its equipping of “pastors and music leaders alike with unique graduate level programs in worship studies.”

IWS President James R. Hart commented, “IWS is honored to receive the Worship Leader Magazine 2008 Editor’s Pick designation.  This award honors the hard work and dedication of the students, alumni, faculty, board and staff of IWS, as well as Bob Webber’s rich legacy in worship education.”

Based in Orange Park, Florida, The Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies is the only graduate school in North America to focus exclusively on worship education. It offers the Doctor of Worship Studies and the Masters of Worship Studies degree programs, using a unique mix of in-class instruction on its Florida campus and distance learning. Since its founding in 1998, over 200 students from more than 40 denominations in the U.S., Canada and eight other countries have graduated from the Institute for Worship Studies.
