Greg Lundberg began his responsibilities as Associate Pastor for Music and Worship at KBC on August 7, 2006. He is married to the love of his life and partner in ministry, Polly, and they have 2 daughters, Ashley and Chelsea. Ashley and her husband Steve live and work in Minnesota. Chelsea and her fiance are finishing college in Missouri. All are musicians and love music ministry.
A native of Minnesota, Greg earned a B.A. degree from Judson College, an M.C.M. degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a Doctorate in Worship Studies from the Institute for Worship Studies, Jacksonville, Florida. He was ordained in 1985.
Greg served churches in Georgia, North Carolina, Illinois and Minnesota before coming to KBC. He is past president of the Fellowship of American Baptist Musicians, an organization which provides music training for ministers of music from all over the United States. The Conference for Church Musicians is held each summer in Green Lake, Wisconsin.
Greg is passionate about leading people in meaningful worship and making music to the glory of God. “We are all worshipers, 24/7, so the question is not if we worship, but what we worship. What holds our focus in this life? When we worship, we come in contact with the Eternal One. As we sing our praises to God, we mysteriously take part in the eternal praises that are sung in heaven. When we worship God, we participate in an event that is rooted in eternity.”
Greg likes to spend his free time with his family, listen to music of all kinds, enjoy food of all kinds, reading deeply, watching films, running, and tending to his gardens. An avid tennis fan, he pines for the classy play and demeanor of the great Bjorn Borg. “He beat you fair and square.” He and Chelsea were thrilled to see the fine play of Rafael Nadal in the 2008 and 2010 Wimbledon finals. Vamos Rafa!!! Greg loves baseball (Cardinals in the N.L., Twins in the A.L.).
