Buddy has extensive experience in the Christian Music industry and in Christian Rock bands. He loves guitars, classic cars and most of all he loves his family, Jennifer, Zachary and Maddie.
2 Corinthians 1:10 " He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us"

Her favorite verse is Ephesians 4:23 "to be made new in the attitude of your minds;"
Her passion is working with the children. When they "get it", it's amazing. When they ask Jesus into their lives "it's mind-blowing that I actually get to be a part of this." She likes researching for the lessons, learning dances for the new songs, and working with our great resource of volunteers every week.
