Hi! I'm Kevin Seal and I joined the Good Shepherd family as the Director of Worship and Music on September 27, 2021. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and began both my musical and faith journeys as a young boy by singing in church choirs. I started organ lessons in high school and have pursued my passion for music ever since. I am a total music nerd and love all forms of classical music, from chamber music to opera, but am most passionate about using music as a force for spiritual transformation and personal growth.
I attended a great Lutheran school, St Olaf, where I received my undergraduate in Church Music and also happened to meet my future wife, Elizabeth. Elizabeth is a music and theatre teacher who has taught all ages - and also happens to be a skilled soprano. We are both passionate about traveling, hiking, and backpacking. We also have two dogs that we are nuts about: Zander and Eddie.
When I'm not making music or planning liturgies, I can be found on a mountain bike, star-gazing, or cooking up something delicious in the kitchen.
