Worship In Spirit and Truth (WIST)
What is a Worship in Spirit and Truth Seminar?
Deepen your relationship with God
Relationship is the basis for worship. God initiates relationship with us, and it is our privilege to respond to His invitation to get to know Him better. Discover the vastness of God’s nature and character in the Scriptures and experience the boundless love that God has for you personally.
Overcome hindrances to worship
The quality of our worship can sometimes be a reflection of the quality of our relationship with God. Dry, lifeless and empty worship may find its source in obstacles from our past choices and our present circumstances. Identify and overcome these hindrances to a meaningful and consistent relationship with God.
Discover Biblical worship
The Scriptures explain who, what, where, when, why and how we are to worship. Teachings will uncover the breadth and depth of Biblical expressions of worship and bring application to our personal faith journey.
Gain vision for your church
If we’re not careful and diligent, the focus of our worship can subtly shift to a horizontal pursuit of pleasing and appeasing people. Discover how Biblical expressions of worship can open doors to Spirit-led creativity in worship planning.
Description of the SeminarThe Worship in Spirit and Truth Seminar (WIST) is a team-led weekend renewal event for churches designed to equip participants with a Biblical understanding of worship. Incorporating Scripture from both the Old Testament and the New Testament, teachings will examine both corporate worship experiences and the lives of individual worshipers. Truths gained from the models of personal and corporate worship in Scripture will be applied to our daily lives.
Designed for the entire church to experience, the Worship in Spirit and Truth Seminar will give fresh insight into worship and its importance in and to our lives.
Expense to the ChurchA non-refundable application fee of $175* is required to confirm the event. The application fee includes the Local Church Preparation Guide. Team members travel at their own expense to live for the weekend with members of the congregation. The church will need to provide meals and suitable housing for all the team.
The church will be responsible for an honorarium ($250) and travel expenses for the coordinator. During the weekend the church is requested to take up a love offering or make a contribution to ARM. One check is sent to the ARM office immediately after the event to cover all costs.
Each participant’s manual retails for $15. ARM provides them to the hosting church for $12 per participant. Many churches charge a registration fee of $15-20 to help defray expenses. Others prefer to fund the event from the church budget.
*Registration fees are reviewed and subject to change in January of each year.
