Ed KayPastor
The Rev. Dr. Edward N. Kay hails from the Lutherville-Timonium area, and began serving as the pastor of St. Paul’s in August of 2015. He is a local graduate of Dulaney High School, and received his B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland, College Park. His Masters of Divinity was awarded by the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia in 2007, and in 2016 he received a Doctor of Ministry degree from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN.

Pastor Ed resides in Timonium with his children, Abigail and Nora, and their greyhound rescue, Jess, and cat, Hobbs. When he’s not in and around the church or spending time with the St. Paul’s Preschool children, you can find him on Monday afternoons at the Timonium Panera Bread for Public Office Hours. For rest, renewal, and fun, you will find him at the local health club running, lifting, or in a yoga class, or out camping & hiking in God’s creation… or wherever his kids want to go ;-)

Elaine LindsayDirector of Music
Elaine Lindsay, Director of Music since June 30, 1995, graduated magna cum laude from Capital University, Columbus, Ohio with a bachelor of Church Music degree. She earned a second degree in Music Education from Carlow College, Pittsburgh, PA.

Elaine taught full-time vocal music for Baltimore County Public Schools for 33 ½ years, earned her master’s equivalency and recently retired from Timonium Elementary.

Special recognition and achievement came when her after-school vocal group of 30+ students, Special Singers, which she founded and directed for over 10 years, was chosen as the only elementary vocal group to sing for the Moscow Ballet’s The Nutcracker at the Morris Mechanic Theatre. They participated in the National Cherry Blossom Parade, appeared on The Educational Channel, and performed for various venues throughout the Baltimore area.

Elaine began playing organ for church as a teenager and has engaged in her passion ever since. She is grateful to God for her two daughters, six grandchildren, and for the people of St. Paul’s who continue to inspire her by their faith and dedication.
