Tell us a little about yourself:
“Christian Assembly has been my church my entire life. My husband (of 20 years) Keith has been a member here for 21 years. This is where we met. We have two children, Alexus and Hunter. My husband filled a technical role as sound technician for 15 years, as I have been a part of the praise team since I was 15 years old. I consider music my ministry as well as my job. God has truly blessed us as we continue to do what He has called us to do.”
What’s your vision for your department?
“We are looking forward to seeing more days of worshiping on earth as they do in heaven. We want to join together every time we meet to be like in 2 Chronicles 5:13-14 where the praisers and musicians made one sound of praise and thanks to the Lord: that then the glory of the Lord filled the house so that even the priests could not stand to minister because of the glory.
“In listening to the Lord for this New Year (2013), I believe that we each need to make our ministry as the last trumpet call people hear before the final trumpet call. Lord, let my voice be that call!”
