Patrick Friesen DWS is the Professor of Worship Arts and Dean of Online Learning at Steinbach Bible College. Patrick Friesen spent most of his life leading congregational worship in a variety of settings. A number of years ago he decided to combine his love of learning with his desire to become a more intentional worship leader by completing a doctorate of worship studies program at the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies. The decision resulted in a transformation of his own spiritual life and has made him more dedicated to worship renewal in the Church.
