St. Olaf Conference on Worship, Theology, and the Arts

As a college with a vibrant Lutheran faith tradition, a thriving program in the arts, and a beautiful residential campus, St. Olaf has long supported the church at large in its mission of bearing witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Conference on Worship, Theology, and the Arts offers professional development, spiritual nourishment and networking opportunities for persons engaged in congregational ministry.

Pastors, church musicians, artists and lay leaders from many denominations and congregations of varying sizes participate in the conference. The conference offers ideas and practices that participants can readily incorporate into worship in their own congregations. Concepts are introduced in conference sessions and worship services in Boe Memorial Chapel and other beautiful spaces on campus. The daily worship services refresh and inspire those who are leaders in their home congregations.

As a community of learners, the conference faculty and the participants foster spiritual renewal and affirm vocation. Participants develop personal and professional networks to call upon for support, expertise and counsel.
