Worship Matters: Episode 91 – Church Music as Performance

Director of Music Ministries, Dr. Diana Sanchez Bushong, and Director of Worship Arts, Dr. Lisa Hancock, invite Dr. Marcell Silva Steuernagel, Assistant Professor of Church Music and Director of the Master of Sacred Music and Doctor of Pastoral Music program at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, to discuss performance and worship music. Dr. Steurenagel served as Minister of Worship, Arts, and Communication at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Curitiba, Brazil; is an internationally active composer and performer, performing in both popular and concert environments in Brazil, North American, Europe, Africa, and Asia; has released pop-rock albums, premiered choral, and orchestral compositions in churches and universities; and edited hymnals and writes at the intersection of church music, theology, musicology, and performance theory in both Portuguese and English. Listen in as the team discusses how performance enhances worship and how our theology demands good performance for God’s glory.

“Worship Matters” is a podcast from the worship team of Discipleship Ministries, designed to deal with the intricacies of planning worship each week. Hosted by Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong, Executive Director of Worship Ministries and Director of Music Ministries; Dr. Lisa Hancock, Director of Worship Arts; and Dr. Derek Weber, Director of Preaching Ministries, this podcast explores themes and issues related to worship in a local context with an emphasis on planning worship in light of the common lectionary while creating worship experiences and series that are engaging, relevant, and adaptable for any church setting.
