“For more than 50 years, Call to Worship and its precursor journals have fostered deep dialogue among pastors, musicians, and scholars around the theology and practice of worship,” said the Rev. Dr. David Gambrell, associate for worship with the Presbyterian Mission Agency, who sees the new website as an opportunity to expand these conversations in digital spaces and draw in fresh perspectives.

Sally Ann McKinsey. The website will also feature additional articles, audio and visual content to enhance the themes of each print issue. “I’m also excited about our new online exhibition space, Assemble. I hope the website will be a generative space where the work of the journal can continue in a new form, facilitating dialogue and community among our subscribers and beyond.”

Gambrell said, “We hope the new website will become a go-to resource for planners and leaders of worship in a variety of cultural and ecclesial contexts — a place to find practical ideas and provocative insights on a convenient and user-friendly platform.”
