Chad W. Kidd has accepted our invitation to be the new BU School of Theology Worship Coordinator and Director of Seminary Singers.

Most of us know Chad as the three-year interim in this position, but you may not know about his interesting background that influenced the Search Committee’s selection of him for the permanent position.

Reverend Kidd received his Bachelor of Music in Church Music from Belmont University and two degrees from Boston University – the Master of Divinity and Master of Sacred Music. He currently leads worship and music in three ministry settings. In addition to serving in the School of Theology, he is Chaplain of North Shore Medical Center (Union Hospital) in Lynn, and is Minister of Music in the First Congregational Church of Reading, MA. Previously he served five years as General Manager of the New England Philharmonic.

Rev. Kidd has many gifts, including the gifts of leadership in worship and music, pastoral ministry, and management of complex organizations and roles. We are very fortunate that he will join us now in the newly shaped role in Worship and Seminary Singers. Chad moves into the role with anticipation, as expressed in his own words:

“It has been a joy to serve in an interim capacity over the past several years, and I am honored and pleased to now be continuing my ministry with this community permanently.  The Seminary Singers and Community Worship are two signature symbols, among many, that make this a wonderful school of theology, and I am so grateful to be a part of both. I look forward to our work together!”

Welcome, Chad!
