In Memoriam: David Winecoff

Reformed Worship editorial council member David Winecoff died in a tragic accident while rock climbing in Colorado on August 18. David was 39, and he and his wife Jane have four children, ages 12, 8, 3, and 1. David was pastor of the Providence Reformed Presbyterian Church (PCA) in St. Louis, Missouri, and taught part-time at Knox Theological Seminary in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

David Winecoff was very knowledgeable and passionate about worship in the Reformed and Presbyterian tradition. He made a valuable contribution to our twice-yearly brainstorming meetings in which council and staff discuss worship issues we should be addressing in Reformed Worship. We will all miss him.
