Using quantitative data analysis and a qualitative survey, the project will assess the transmission and reception of popular worship songs to understand better the relationship between the worship music industry and local worship practitioners. The study aims to equip practitioners with a deeper understanding of the forces that impact their corporate worship song selections. Findings from this research will be published in 2023.
