Minister of Music
“Sounds start where words stop.” Music lifts up the spirit and the soul in a way that is complementary to words; it builds a bridge between Heaven and earth. I enjoy uniting sounds and emotions, trusting that they will convey comfort, encouragement and healing, joy, peace, inner strength, new insights. I am glad and honored to share with you the gift that God entrusted me and to serve at First Congregational Church of Santa Barbara.
