  • Speaker & Worship Leader
    Speaker

    Gregory Athnos

    Mr. Anthos served as associate professor of music for 32 years on the North Park University faculty. Mr. Athnos also appeared as a conductor in Minneapolis Orchestra Hall, in Chicago’s Orchestra Hall and as guest conductor for the Chamber Orchestra of St. Petersburg, Russia and the State Symphony of Estonia. In 2007 Mr. Athnos was asked to conduct the Majesty Chorale, which was invited to participate in the 2008 pre-Olympic Festival in China.

    Mr. Athnos has traveled throughout North America, Europe and Japan as a conductor, guest clinician and as a lecturer in music and theology, the latter emphasizing the theological significance of the art in the Roman Catacombs. Mr. Athnos retired from university teaching in 1998 and now lectures at arts organizations, Elderhostel, museums, conference centers, and churches.

    Worship

    Jeff Reed

    Jeff serves as the pastor of Highland Covenant Church in Bellevue, WA where he brings together his love for teaching, poetry, music, and people.  Happy to be in the Northwest again after a long sojourn in California, Jeff and his wife Susan of 33 years spend time walking trails, reading, and getting away to their country cabin in southern Washington with their three children and their spouses, all of whom live in the Northwest.  Jeff is excited once again to be leading some robust Mission Springs singing with his best friend Kelly.

    Kelly Ballard

    An educator and Covenant pastor, Kelly enjoys leading singers of all ages and in many styles.  He is the director of BeyondWorship, through which he partners with churches that are finding and developing their ‘indigenous’ worship voices.  Kelly loves traveling, reading, composing, and exercising. He has been married to Frayne for 37 years and is dad to three adult sons and two daughters-in-law.  Weather-permitting, you will find him water skiing near his home in Sherwood, Oregon.
