Jeff Kidder

Position: 
Sunday Night Music Director
Jeff’s vision and passion is to be a community builder, church musician/worship leader and trainer/mentor. In his work as a music minister (2 years at St. Matts and 20+ at Messiah in St. Paul), Jeff uses a rich musical tapestry that includes liturgical music, historic hymnody as well as the best of contemporary and world music styles, to engage congregations in worship marked by fullness, depth, balance and participation. He also desires to share resources and encouragement with other churches and church musicians in their work to craft authentic, meaningful worship that honors God, their church’s history and traditions, and engages people in their current cultural setting,
