Bryan Pitts, an awesome pianist, engineer, husband, father and soldier in the ranks of our music ministry leadership, has faithfully served 15+ years with a great passion and commitment to see that his region is offered the best in worship week after week, using the tools he has on hand. Mark Messinger, a Berklee graduate, a reluctant leader and brilliant composer and arranger, is another gifted colleague in the ranks of our music ministry leadership that deserves a standing ovation.

And finally, Barry Bushart, who is an incredible servant, has a way about him where he makes very difficult tasks easy. For years, when there is a need, he has been the first on the scene and the last one to leave. He has served in numerous roles over the 30 plus years of service, all without grumbling, complaining or fighting for recognition.

The last two years I have had the privilege of serving in the role of worship director in the Boston Church of Christ has been a very rewarding experience. I was compelled to write an open letter of expressions and gratitude for such extraordinary music ministry leadership in the Boston Church of Christ. These servants are worthy of being honored because of the long-time service to God and his people.
