Fran Pratt: Interim Worship Pastor

Fran Pratt started singing in church when she was seven years old. For 14 years she was a worship leader in the Vineyard movement of churches, leading rock bands, building teams, planning events, and writing worship songs. In a former life, she was a clinical nutritionist, holding a M.S. in Human Nutrition. But liturgy and the arts in church practice, as well as motherhood, lured her away from that profession. She’s passionate about melding modern worship traditions with ancient spiritual and liturgical practices, and finding a balance between the contemplative and the joyously expressive in congregational worship. Her aim in worship leadership is to make space for congregants to engage directly with the Divine. She writes congregational litanies weekly which appear on her website franpratt.com, and is currently working on a book of litanies.

Fran and her husband Jordan Gadapee have together lived in Louisiana, Iowa, Illinois, and California, and now call Texas home. They have been married since 2003 and have two young daughters: Bluet is 7 and Temple is 5.
