Steve Skinner, MM, serves as head coach for the music ensembles. Steve assists in offering songs for congregational worship (Hymns, Psalms and Spiritual Songs) that correspond to the seasons (Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Ascension, etc.) and the sermon topic. Preparing the choirs to lead in worship is part of his joy, another is helping individuals to “find their voice” (everyone has one!) through choir training or individual attention. Steve’s utmost desire is that worshippers apprehend that their Heavenly Father LOVES to hear them sing—and that we all experience the joy of worshipping together!
