In 1984 Roy Hopp became the first full time Director of Music in the Christian Reformed denomination when he began his work at Hillcrest Christian Reformed Church in Denver, CO. Since then he has served several churches in West Michigan in both the RCA and the CRC. Currently he is the Director of Music at Woodlawn Christian Reformed Church and a composer of over 80 published choral anthems and hymn tunes. His anthems are published by Augsburg Fortress, earthsongs, GIA, Kjos, MorningStar, and Selah and his hymn tunes appear in over two dozen hymnbooks in the United States, Canada, Scotland, England and Wales. Roy is the director of the Calvin Theological Seminary choir.
“A study of the music of the church will demonstrate that it is a church which values the rich traditions of the past and celebrates the colorful diversity of the present. Through the vast array of its choral anthems and its congregational hymns and songs the church has had many voices with which to praise God. It is our duty and delight to add our voice to that eternal hymn. The Seminary Choir is such a group that studies the many facets of church music and seeks ways to use that music in the praise of God. It is both my duty and delight to serve God at Calvin Theological Seminary, leading the Choir in music that is both historically significant, culturally diverse and above all, worthy of our God.”
Roy is married to Dr. Nancy Meyer. They have two children, Allison and Benjamin.
