Alumni Association Introduction

Bob Webber and Kent Walters, June 2002


The IWS Alumni Association exists to celebrate the unique community established among the students and faculty while on campus in Orange Park. Our aim is to encourage, edify and inspire through Anamnesis: the IWS Newsletter, our Web site and special events. Bob Webber and I introduce the Alumni Association during the January 2005 Opening Convocation in this audio clip:

IWS Alumni Association Introduction (7:58)


I’m privileged to serve the alumni and greater community of the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies.

The Lord used Bob Webber and the IWS faculty and students to make a significant and lasting impact on my life and ministry. Worship renewal in my personal life and in the ministries in which I serve are evidences of this. It is a joy for me to give back by serving the IWS community in this way.


We are a part of the faith community that is unique to IWS. Since we value the friendship and the personal and professional growth we experienced in our relationships with one another on campus, we want to maintain this vital communication of giving and receiving. The IWS Web site is one means to maintain this unique community by providing a variety of resources and  facilitating ongoing interaction.

Thanks for keeping in touch.

Grace and peace,
