Director of Music & Worshipoffice: 713-526-1188 x3
BJ McDougal has served Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church as Director of Music and Worship since the summer of 2001, having been in full time music ministry since 1988. He holds a Bachelor of Music degree in sacred music from Houston Baptist University and a Masters Degree in Performance in choral conducting from The University of Houston. As Director of Music and Worship at Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church, BJ’s vision in service is to lead others to draw near to God so that God will draw near to them (James 4:8). Worship of the Almighty God is at the heart of what BJ strives for in ministry. As a musical director, BJ has worked with choirs, orchestras and worship bands. He enjoys the beauty of choral and orchestral music, and the blending of the ancient with the modern. His eclectic worship services are a reflection of this. Easter and Christmas productions that feature choir, orchestra and soloists are a major part of what BJ works on each year. Since 2004, the annual performances of Handel’s Messiah have become a Houston tradition. Messiah is the highlight of the Christ In The Arts Performance Series at Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
