The Liturgists Gathering, Los Angeles, CA 2017

Thank you so very much for being a part of my dissertation project. It means a great deal to me. 

My name is Tripp Hudgins and I am a doctoral candidate at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU). I invite you to participate in the research for my dissertation project. My dissertation focuses on the conceptual and phenomenological relationship between evangelical worship services and musical concerts held by evangelical worship musicians.

For audience members, we will meet once at the event itself for just a few minutes. In the unlikely event that I will need to ask follow-up questions, I will need your e-mail address. Please provide it below in one of the comment boxes.

You can find me on Twitter and Facebook. Thanks again!
