Jacksonville, FL – This fall, the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies (IWS) is offering DWS 705 Stained Glass Drum Shield Fabrication as part of its Doctor of Worship Studies (DWS) Program. Expert craftsmen will be brought in to train the apprentices. Students will be able to take the shields back to their congregations for the purpose of church renewal.
Genilyn McCaffrey, DWS graduate of IWS, commented on the new course: “I wish they had this class when I was in the program. It is the perfect intersection of arts and worship. Bob Webber would be proud of these Ancient-Future shields.”
President Dr. James R. Hart indicated that if this course proves successful, other courses on fabrication of incense drum sticks and mosaic-covered drum risers will follow.
