The Institute Of Contemporary & Emerging Worship Studies 2007

To my contemporary & emerging worship leader friends around the world,

I want to personally invite you to consider coming to St. Stephen to join us for one of our Institute programs this coming year.

Really. I mean it. Come. You won’t be disappointed.

You’ll soon see on the Institute site a large amount of enthusiastic endorsements and recommendations from those who have taken our Two Week Certificate and One Year Diploma programs.

One is up right now from Kim Gentes, founder of and worship leader, that will give you a beautiful glimpse into the Two Week Intensive Certificate Program in Worship Studies & Spiritual Formation.

Our creative-friendly approach to deepening worship leaders academically, spiritually and creatively is clearly working.

Join us in the revolution, reinvesting the gift of the contemporary worship experience with the riches of the past – toward the emerging future.

In friendship,

The Institute Of Contemporary & Emerging Worship Studies
St. Stephen’s University


Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
