Description


The mission of the Deans' Lecture Series is to provide a venue for interdisciplinary exploration of biblical, theological, and cultural scholarship.

Join us February 9, 2018

7:00pm-9:00pm

Special Guest: Dr. Ann Ahrens

"Suffering, Soul Care, and Community: The Place of Lament in Corporate Evangelical Worship"

This lecture will examine the foundations of biblical lament found primarily in the Psalms, and
their continued use as both template and teacher throughout Scripture. Special attention is given
to Jesus’ use of the lament Psalms, and the ways in which he modeled their use for believers.
Application of the Scriptural laments to today’s corporate worship practices calls the corporate
body to implement these heartfelt prayers into the care of souls from across the emotional
spectrum, thus helping believers to more holistically fulfill the calling and mission of the church
to share the Gospel.

Ann Ahrens is a general licensed minister with the United Pentecostal Church International, and
also serves as Professor of Worship Studies at Urshan College, and adjunct professor at Urshan
Graduate School of Theology. Ann has written regularly for the Pentecostal Herald, World
Aflame Adult Sunday School literature, and contributed study notes for the Apostolic Study
Bible. In addition to involvement in church music and worship studies, Ann holds degrees in
classical piano. Ann has earned an M.A. in Piano Pedagogy and Performance from Webster
University, and M.T.S. from Urshan Graduate School of Theology, and a Ph.D. in Christian
Worship with a minor in Christianity and the Arts from The Southern Baptist Theological
Seminary.
