Meet Our Leaders
Pastor Ben Krey
We welcome Pastor Krey and his wife Marissa to our Christus Victor family. He comes to us from Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Philadelphia, PA.
2008 Master of Music from Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD)
Simon Zaleski has served as CVLC's Music Director since 2008, after moving to Durham following receipt of master's degrees in harpsichord, composition, and musicology from the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. A specialist in Renaissance, Baroque, and Celtic music, he has performed on harpsichord, organ, piano, viola, viola da gamba, and recorder and brings some of this music to CVLC. Over the past few years, he has performed with many early music ensembles in Baltimore and at Duke and UNC. A rather geeky list of hobbies, perhaps influenced by growing up in the Seattle area, includes history, fishkeeping, Star Trek and other sci-fi, and games of all sorts--and there is always another musical instrument to learn!
