AFFN Announces Gifts to Institute for Worship Studies
During the June, 2016 session of the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies, AFFN Founder and Board Chair Chris Alford was invited to address the students and faculty to share about the mission and activities of the Network. He also invited folks into the Network family and highlighted several AFFN resources and website features.
During his address, Chris announced four gifts from the AFFN to the IWS and its students:
Discounts for AFFN membership for IWS students.
Free registration to the AFFN annual convocation for IWS students.
A gift to the Institute of photographs of Robert E. Webber, some going back to his childhood days in Africa, discovered during a recent cataloging of Webber’s personal effects.
A gift of $500 to the IWS Scholarship Fund to benefit students.
The Ancient-Future Faith Network is proud to support the work and ministry of the Institute for Worship Studies!
Brand New Award:
We closed our first morning session by interviewing Dr. Glenn Collard highlighting his work as founder and nurturer of the Charlotte AFFN Cloister, and his newly established ministry, Corum Deo International. Glenn’s passion for Ancient-Future renewal in worship and theology is fueled by his long experience in Christian education, church and school music, international missions and church planting, and pastoral ministries that spans nearly 30 years, 60 countries, and four continents.
At the end of the interview, Chris presented a very surprised Glenn with the first annual Robert E. Webber Award for Outstanding Promotion of Ancient-Future Faith (picture, right). Congratulations, Glenn! We celebrate your mission and ministry and are grateful for your work and membership in the AFFN!
