Dr. Bjorlin prepares his students for lives of significance and service by guiding and equipping them with practical skills centered around worship. “I believe what and how we worship forms the people we are and the way we interact with the world,” he says. As the assistant chapel coordinator at North Park and the pastor of worship and creative arts at the Resurrection Covenant Church, Dr. Bjorlin incorporates his experiences into the classroom by combining theory, practice, and reflection.
Framing his classes through a city-centered lens, Dr. Bjorlin emphasizes that in order to understand worship, one must first understand location. He aims to teach students the importance of learning what it means to be a Christian living in a particular city surrounded by different cultures. Dr. Bjorlin says, “I love working at a school in the diverse heart of a beautiful and complex city like Chicago.”
