Worship isn’t just another option at IWS. They are the only accredited graduate school in the world dedicated to worship and built from its beginnings to be that way. They emphasize the student and their ministry context in the classroom, and use rich tools to continue learning on-line following on-campus intensives. They are intentional about creating an egalitarian, highly relational community. IWS is affordable, non-residential, and is beautifully diverse in denominations, age, experience, and international student body presence.
The Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies forms servant leaders in Christian worship renewal and education through graduate academic praxis, grounded in biblical, historical, theological, cultural and missiological reflection in community.
IWS graduates will be academically and spiritually formed servant leaders who participate intentionally in the story of the Triune God, fostering renewal in the local and global church by shaping life and ministry according to the fullness of that story.
