Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Symposium on Worship and the Arts at Calvin College
For the first time, registration for the January 2003 Symposium was handled completely online. More than 1,400 people had registered by December 6, making it necessary to close registrations more than a month before the conference. The staff regretted having to turn many more people away who didn't realize it would fill up so fast. Mark your calendars now for next year (January 9-10, 2004) and register early!
New Ministry Resource Center
Have you ever wondered where to go for the most helpful materials to plan a worship service, lead a small group Bible study, or develop an outreach program? Or wished you could compare leading programs and their related materials, some of which cost hundreds of dollars and require weeks of seminar training to obtain? You will soon have a place to find all the resources you will need for congregational ministry.
