Musical career

Glen Soderholm is an ordained Presbyterian minister who has five albums to his credit. His music is insightful spiritual acoustic folk, which often highlights Trinitarian themes.

He took up the guitar at 13 years of age, playing with the Jesus People at his church and at coffee-houses in the early seventies in Montreal. Soderholm graduated from the University of Toronto in 1981, with a B.A. degree in History and English. He subsequently worked with the Youth for Christ high school campus ministry for some six years. He continued his studies at Knox College, and was awarded the Master of Divinity degree. He was ordained a minister of the Presbyterian Church in Canada in 1991.

Between 1991 and 2004 Soderholm pastored two parishes in the town of Milton, Ontario, St. David's in the village of Campbellville, and Nassagaweya. During this time he recorded several of his albums. His debut, In The Belly Of the Fish, was released in 1997 on his own Pilgrim Gargoyle Recordings label. Glen Soderholm presently records on the Moveable Feast label, distributed via Signpost Distribution.

In June 2004 Soderholm founded Moveable Feast Resources, of which he is the full-time director. This is an innovative ministry consulting ministry based in Rockwood, with performing and teaching, singing, songwriting, worship leadership and guidance. The ministry aims to tune up worship services in churches, and is done within all the different church traditions. He still tours and performs live, ably supported by David White, his assistant at Moveable Feast Resources.

Glen Soderholm is the father of Danielle and Julia, and husband of Sharon Soderholm. He is also an artist associate with World Vision's child sponsorship program.
