TruthTalks: Worship -The church Jesus would attend series

Top image Worship TT

In this TruthTalk, I cover the topic of reverent and adoring worship, which I wrote about in my last article. This is part of a series that examines the Sunday service corporate expressions of church life.

What we sing, to whom we sing, and how we sing in our church services flows from our attitude towards The Lord.

  1. Hey Chris. Thanks for this great podcast. I remember Adam explaining our church’s song selection protocol to Rob and I when we were just starting to lead worship, and this has stuck with me ever since. It does mean that the church often isn’t singing the ‘top ten’ songs, but we are singing songs that exult our King and worship Him above all. It also means that almost every song is ‘relevant’ in any given service as they all place Jesus at the centre of our praise.

    I really like what you said about Jesus standing in our midst… How different would our worship be, if we remembered that He IS there with us. Again, thanks for this great podcast. Going to forward to my team. 🙂

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
