Linda MacGorman

Transitional Music Director

Linda MacGorman is a Texas native who has made Springfield, Missouri her home for more than 25 years.  Thanks to her father's sabbatical leaves, she had the opportunity to live with her family in Beirut, Lebanon and in Tokyo, Japan.  She has two sons, a daughter-in-law and three grandchildren, all of whom live in Springfield.  She has been a Covenant partner since 2011, and has sung in the choir and as a soloist since then.  Now that she has retired from medical practice, she is serving as Transitional Music Director while we search for a permanent worship minister.
