The Worship Exchange Program is an ongoing effort to provide resources for our faculty, staff, and students to engage and explore topics related to adolescent worship practices, intergenerational worship, and the creative use of the arts in worship. We often travel with our undergraduate and graduate students and often invite individuals to visit our campus for peer learning intensives. Events hosted at Samford University are open to the public.

He is passionate about enriching the worship life of current congregations, regardless of style. He believes that careful reflection on the worship of other Christians—whether past or present, whether Protestant, Roman Catholic, or Eastern Orthodox—can serve to enrich the church today.
