I am the Worship Coordinator for a mid-sized church in the south suburban Chicago area. We currently have 1 Sunday morning service--it is a blended service with some organ, some piano, and some praise team. My challenge is to find music each week that fits the theme of the services, in all styles. This is a challenge I love, though. The words to songs are just as important to me as the music--sometimes more important. They must be easy enough to sing, but deep enough to cause one to think. My favorites lately have been by Keith and Kristyn Getty, Stuart Townend, and Sovereign Grace Ministries. My passion is to bring people each week to see Christ and grow in a deeper relationship with him. I am married to Ed for 32 years, and have three wonderful children, two of whom are married, and the third is single. We also have 2 wonderful grandsons who are the joy of our lives. All of them love the Lord, and that is the most precious gift a parent can receive. To God be the glory!
