Interesting Facts:Our family came to ARCOG not knowing I would one be on staff. Talks about that started just a few weeks after we began attending and the rest, as they say is history. Besides leading Worship, which is my main passion, I have been privileged to be in involved in a variety of ministries including teaching Sunday School, Youth leadership, choir, VBS, Board of Christian Education, to name a few. My family, down through the years, have also been involved in Sunday School, Choir, Drama and Youth. Besides music my other passion is reading and talking about great literature. I also love being outdoors and sitting around and playing music with my friends.
