Greg Lundberg began his responsibilities as Associate Pastor for Music and Worship at KBC on August 7, 2006. He and his wife Polly have 2 daughters, Ashley and Chelsea. Polly is a partner in ministry and works as a music activities professional at a skilled nursing facility. Ashley (a hospice music therapist) and husband Steve (concert classical guitarist and teacher) live in North Carolina. Chelsea and husband Eian have just completed graduate music degrees 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 for 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, listening to music, traveling, reading, movies, singing in the St. Louis Symphony chorus, photography and gardening. An avid tennis fan, he pines for the classy play and demeanor of the great Bjorn Borg. “He beat you fair and square.” He also enjoys baseball. Go Cards!
