As I have traveled, in this country and in others talking to numerous Christian leaders, and observing a number of different congregations, denominations and contexts, I believe the following major broad stroke trends regarding worship I believe can be anticipated by the churches and Christian communities around the world. 1. Controversy over worship styles will continue. 2. Diversity of Worship styles will increase. 3. Worship-based services will emerge and increase. 4. Inter-denominational and Regional Cooperation in worship events will increase. 5. Worship will be seen as Evangelism. 6. Evangelicals are experimenting with more formal liturgy and Orthodoxy. 7. Technology will play an ever increasing role in our worship service.
