Cultivating vital communities,
vital conversations, and the public good.

        JANUARY 14-15, 2015

The 2015 Re-Mind & Re-New Conference centers on the topic of worship. Through plenary presentations by two worship scholars, we will explore trends in the practice of worship among U.S. Protestant congregations. In addition, we will consider what we think about the trends. Which trends are vital and faithful and deserve positive attention? Which should give us pause? The two scholars who will outline the options and assess contemporary practices are Drs. Melanie Ross from Yale and Ruth Duck from Garrett-Evangelical (see bios under Speakers).

In lieu of workshops per se, you'll be able to ask questions and hear stories from leaders in faith communities which are blurring conventional lines and trying something interesting: online church; neo-Pentacostal worship in a congregation that is not; emerging worship in a mainline congregation; a Unitarian congregation's radical act of hospitality that has changed its worship and its life.

As is the case with every Re-Mind & Re-New Conference, you should expect two lively worship experiences with great preaching, as well as a fine dinner on Wednesday evening.

Registration opens after Labor Day and a discounted registration will be available until
December 19, 2014.  

The Wednesday night featured lecturer is the Rev. Dr. Ruth Duck. Duck is a renowned hymnist and Professor of Worship at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary.  She has written may books and articles about Christian worship, most recently Worship for the Whole People of God: Vital Worship for the 21st Century.  This evening lecture is free and open to the public at 7 pm in the Meinders Chapel.


Re-Mind & Re-New is an annual conference hosted by PTS in January. The purpose of R&R is to gather religious professionals and interested publics for thought-provoking and spirit-renewing presentations, conversation, and worship.


Come early for the Re-Mind & Re-New pre-conference event Women and Worship  Jan. 13-14, 2015.
