  • Benjamin Novak

    Co-Director of Music

    Benjamin and his wife, Hannah, have been married since 2018; they have a beautiful daughter (Beatrix) and they long to meet their son (Lawrence) who waits for them in heaven. Benjamin thanks the Lord for steeping him in music since a young age: he took piano lessons for 10 years, sang with his dad in the church choir, competed musically in high school and college, and grew up in a church that sang rich hymns. He still pushes himself musically by learning new instruments, receiving vocal instruction, and writing the occasional hymn. He counts it a privilege to lead the congregation in their corporate singing, and he enjoys coordinating musicians, arranging service music, and planning services. Outside of music, Benjamin is completing a masters of divinity degree through Reformed Theological Seminary, and his hobbies include sampling his wife's (delicious!) cooking, thrifting, and maintaining a small urban garden.
