Kathryn Baldanza

Worship Leader, East Lexington Campus

What are your responsibilities going to be at Grace?
I'll be leading the music weekly for the East Lexington Campus!

What did you do before coming to Grace Chapel?            
My husband and I assisted in the planting of Christ The King JP/Roxbury and I served as its Music Director during that time.

Personal stuff, hobbies or what you do for fun: 
I'm especially interested in the intersection of culture, theology, and incarnational musical expression. My passion is to see the church in the United States wrestle honestly with the complicated history of racism within its walls and to seek to reflect more fully the great City of God as expressed in scripture. I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan. I also love Star Wars and a good science fiction short story. Gustav Klimt is my favorite painter, Flannery O'Conner is my literary hero. I drink a lot of coffee and think my kids are really hilarious. I believe everyone should take kids seriously because some of the best theological insights come from them.

Interesting facts that not many people would know:       
It's pretty hard to miss, and once you see my family all together you'll never forget it: we have two sets of twins--20 months apart! Our oldest daughter is a singleton and an expert big sister to her two brothers and two sisters. When the youngest were born, we had five kids under five (four of them under age two!)

Favorite Bible Verse:     
The whole book of Job and Revelation 5. Thanks be to God.
