Bio
If you ask Ken Read about himself, he would likely say that he is a highly-dysfunctional follower of Jesus who has discovered that he is not as talented as he had imagined and has better friends than he deserves. Then he would likely talk about his family and his ministry. Most people who know him would describe him as a creative. Dr. Read grew up in Cincinnati and has lived here most of his life, with the exception of ministries in Illinois and Kentucky. He and Ellen are parents to eight children and grandparents to about twenty (the number changes). Professionally, he has been a worshiper and a worship leader, a church planter, and a teacher. Ken is a published songwriter, and a member of ASCAP. His books include **Created to Worship** (College Press), and books on Christian living. Dr. Read teaches courses that are near the intersection of the subjects of music, worship, culture and creativity.
