Dr. Marcia McFee is a ritual artist. Drawing on a first career in professional dance and musical theater and equipped with a Master’s in Theology and a PhD in Liturgical Studies, she understands the role of any artist in the church as that of creating extraordinary portals through which communities journey with the Spirit. The task is at once deeply theological and wildly artistic. Connecting worship professionals and volunteers to their passion and depth of spiritual leadership is her aim in teaching and consulting as well as equipping them to explore diverse expressions of worship with enthusiasm. Dr. McFee has designed and led worship for many regional, national and international denominational gatherings over the last 20 years, coordinating musicians, visual artists, preachers and choirs from around the world. She is the creator and innovator of the Worship Design Studio (www.worshipdesignstudio.com), an online experience of coaching, education, inspiration and a worship design application. She lives in the SF Bay area.
