Keith Getty

This week we have the pleasure of talking with modern day hymn writer Keith Getty. Currently on tour with An Irish Christmas, Keith and his wife, Kristyn, have done much to revitalize the singing of traditional hymns as well as new hymns that are reaching deep into today’s worship services.

I first met the Gettys when they were newlyweds who had just moved to America to follow God’s leading. Delightful then and now, Keith and Kristyn are perfectly matched as a couple, with four beautiful daughters.

In 2017 Keith Getty was honored as an “Officer of the Order of the British Empire” (OBE) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The award, which commemorates Getty’s contribution to “Music and Modern Hymn Writing,” marks the first occasion that the award has been given to an individual involved in the world of contemporary church music.
