I'd like to introduce myself...
Welcome to the Music and Arts department at Shekinah Christian School! I am thrilled you are considering involvement in our program. Our students have great and varied opportunities to learn, create, perform, travel, and grow as artists and musicians through their school career.
Middle school opportunities include ukulele and bucket drumming, as well as eligibility for the stage production every other year. High school opportunities include High School choir, Honors Choir, stage production on the opposite year of Choral Fest, worship team, solo and small ensemble opportunities, Fine Arts Gala, Community Christmas concert and more! We also provide opportunities to learn video production, digital graphic design, as well as sound and lighting techniques.
I am not a native to Ohio, but have lived here for 8 years. I have a BA in Church Music and Biblical Studies (Northpoint Bible College, Massachusetts), and a MA in Practical Theology with a specialization in Children and Family (Southwestern Assemblies of God University, Texas).
In addition to teaching at Shekinah, my husband and I are Lead Pastors at Hope Church, Plain City and I travel as a Family Ministry Specialist and a conference speaker/teacher. We have three children ages 11, 13, and 17 who are a part of Shekinah, and two fur babies - a cockapoo, Jett and a Shi-Chon, Sophia. I love to travel and read and am fairly famous for my love of crazy socks, coffee and Christmas.
Here’s to a GREAT school year!

2 Peter 1:5-10
So don't lose a minute in building on what you've been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others. With these qualities active and growing in your lives, no grass will grow under your feet, no day will pass without its reward as you mature in your experience of our Master Jesus. Without these qualities you can't see what's right before you, oblivious that your old sinful life has been wiped off the books. So, friends, confirm God's invitation to you, his choice of you. Don't put it off; do it now. Do this, and you'll have your life on a firm footing.
