The single largest Protestant school system in America is managed by the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

There is a total of 1,992 Lutheran schools which includes 86 Lutheran high schools. Lutheran High North is one of 10 high schools in Texas and one of three high schools in the Houston metropolitan area.

Redeemer Lutheran Church in Los Alamos will host the Lutheran High North Concert Choir for a concert at 7 p.m. tonight at the church, 2000 Diamond Drive. The concert is free.

The choir is made up of students from the ninth through the 12th grades. Like other high school choirs, they compete every year in solo competitions, small ensembles and large ensemble.

As a Lutheran high school choir their music focuses on the person and work of Jesus Christ. The concert theme is "Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."

The choir will present a concert about Jesus as He is praised throughout the liturgical year of the church. The choir will share the Gospel through the gift of music. Musical selections from Advent, Christmas, and so on, will show the audience that Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. 

The choir looks forward to sharing Christ's love through music with all in attendance.

Jeff Armstrong has been the choral director at Lutheran High North for five years.  He is a graduate of Concordia University, Irvine, California, formally known as Christ College Irvine. 

In addition to directing the choir at Lutheran High North, Armstrong is the full time minister of Music at Our Savior Lutheran Church where he has served for 20 years.  His duties include teaching classroom music to pre-school through sixth grade, directing two children's choirs and presenting a spring musical each year.

His church duties include directing the adult choir, a women's choir, an adult handbell choir, and playing the organ for worship service each week.

Though busy, there is nothing he'd rather do.  In his spare time, Armstrong enjoys spending time with his wife, Debbie, of 34 years and his six kids.
