Ministries

Music

We seek to inspire, educate and guide every age group to worship God through the ministries of music and related arts, utilizing vocal, instrumental and other talents that are offered.

For more information on getting involved, contact Director of Music Ministries Andy Jensen. You can also read Dr. Jensen's bio on our meet the staff page. Our amazing organist is Dennis Bergin and his bio is also on the meet the staff page.
