As Minister of Music here, she oversees all aspects of music ministry, supervises salaried and volunteer music staff, plans and coordinates our Traditional Worship service as well as various special services as needed, AND directs our Sanctuary Choir, First Joy Senior Adult Choir, and Bells of Praise.

She met Christ and began a personal relationship with Him at age 12. She graduated from Leon High School and has a degree in Choral Music Education from Florida State University.
Penny loves spending time with her family (husband Byron, son Matthew, daughter-in-law Jessica, grandson William, and daughter Sarah), and photography, bicycling, writing, and Facebooking.
