Program Director and Adjunct Professor of Worship Arts
After serving her local church as a lay music ministry person for several years, in 1993, Betty Weatherby began teaching in Kingswood’s music program. It was here that her interest in the broader field of worship theology began to germinate.
“God is speaking a fresh word to the Church by drawing attention and bringing renewal to its worship practices,” says Dr. Weatherby. “I see a hunger in this generation for substantive worship which has the potential for long-term spiritual formation.” She continues,
The worship arts program at Kingswood is on the cutting edge of a movement, grounding the worship of the contemporary church in theological truth which has ancient roots.
Dr. Weatherby has taught piano and music theory, and directed church choirs, musicals, and the Kingswood university choir. She and her husband David, her “strongest supporter,” have three children and nine grandchildren. She enjoys sewing, knitting, sailing, and motorbiking.
