Meet the new ELCA program director for music: John E. Weit
John Weit will begin his call with the churchwide organization on Oct. 17.
John completes a seven-year call as cantor to Trinity Lutheran Church in Worcester, Mass., where he facilitated the worship and music life of the urban congregation, was the organist and conducted various choirs and ensembles.
Having previously served congregations in Philadelphia and his hometown of Lititz, Pa., John earned a Master of Arts in Religion degree with concentration in liturgy and music from The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia in 2009. At the seminary he also served for one year as interim seminary musician, coordinating and leading music for daily chapel liturgies and conducting the seminary choir. John is a rostered minister of Word and Service in the ELCA and serves on the boards of the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians and Leadership Program for Musicians.
We welcome John and pray for him in this work.
