Gary Rand

Gary Rand is a worship leader and crafts music to lead people into the presence of God. In the early eighties, he released two solo albums on Milk & Honey records. His first album, Break That Ground, was conceived as a worship album, while his second, Caught By Surprise, was more contemporary in sound, calling believers to live a life of integrity.

Gary earned a doctorate in music composition from Northwestern University and spent time as Seminary Musician and Adjunct Professor at McCormick Theological Seminary.

Gary Rand co-founded The Plural Guild with his wife Lenora with the purpose of making meaningful rituals and worship experiences by creating prayers, poems, and visual art that reflect faith in God. Previous to running The Plural Guild, he was Director of Worship Activities and Adjunct Professor in Worship at McCormick Theological Seminary for twenty years. A veteran worship pastor, teacher, workshop leader, songwriter, and music producer, he's helped craft creative, inclusive, diverse, and participatory worship experiences for churches, seminaries, denominational conferences, and national events like The Wild Goose Festival. Not only does he lead this liturgical resource site, he produces The Many, a music collective creating new music for worship.
