IWS Interactive Webinars

Our webinars are LIVE Microsoft Teams sessions that include a short presentation by the author of a recently published book followed by a discussion based on your questions. They are designed to provide ongoing education, worship resources, and inspiration for worship planners and leaders.

IWS webinars are offered free of charge, but each registrant must purchase the author’s book in advance of the event in order to facilitate focused discussion.


Cherry Worship Architect

Constance Cherry provides worship leaders with credible blueprint plans for successfully designing worship services that foster meaningful conversation with God and the gathered community. More than 150 colleges and seminaries around the world have used or currently use the first edition as a required text.

In this new edition, each chapter has been substantially updated and revised, including illustrations, key terms, examples, technological references, and suggested resources for further reading. A new appendix on live-streamed worship is included.

Examples of emerging topics warranting new material not found in the first edition include:

  • the increasing globalization of worship
  • the increasing secularization of worship
  • worship during a pandemic
  • the relationship between evangelism and worship
  • the relationship between local church worship and worshiping in other venues

“Once we use the word ‘worship’ to apply to everything we do, we can end up concluding that it all means the same thing and fulfills the same purposes.”

— Constance Cherry
