John Bury

My musical career began when I was cast as an elf in my second grade Christmas play. Since then I have given up the green tights, but have delighted in seeing how God continued to open doors for me in the field of music, including a 26 year professional career in the United States Navy Band. In 1983 when I was asked to play guitar and lead some singing for a bible study group led by Pastor Bob Wagner, I had no idea that Grace Brethren Church would become our home for these past thirty some years! It is humbling to stand and lead the congregation as we worship our Risen Savior in song. My wife Robbin and I are blessed with a large family and enjoy spending time together. Whether it’s a mountain hike, a scenic drive, or a good game of Frisbee golf, we love to get outside and witness the evidence of God in His creation with our adult children and grandchildren. I spend most of my time trying to keep up with them!
