Candler inspires real commitment. We come together in Christian community to learn, to pray, to minister, and to serve God and the church. We encourage our students to test their convictions, reason through conflict, and ultimately strengthen their faith.
Third-year MDiv Darin Arntson is putting her passion for worship into practice by designing dynamic experiences that move a congregation and invite the presence of the Holy Spirit.
'As a young adult, I realized that my peers had disengaged from church,' the California native recalls. 'I wondered what would happen if we had worship that spoke to my generation, that motivated them.' Arntson sensed that if people really felt the Spirit moving in worship, it would compel them to stay.
