A native of Bluefield, WV, Lisa attended Bluefield College where she met her husband, Jimmy. She graduated in May 1991 with a degree in Business and she and Jimmy married in June of that year.  They have two sons, Graham ('96)and Garrett ('00). In her free time she enjoys exercising, listening to praise & worship music, reading and watching movies.  

Lisa and Jimmy began attending St. John in 1991 and from the very start it was like family. 26 years later it is even more so.

For as long as she can remember Lisa has always loved to sing. She joined the very first contemporary praise team at St. John called "Hearts on Fire" in 1998.  As her faith and love of the Lord grew through the study of God's word, her heart truly was set on fire for the praise and worship of Jesus.

She is completely humbled and blessed to help lead God's people in worship. Her prayer is that every Sunday people would experience the presence of God through Word and Sacrament and authentically worship Him in spirit and in truth through singing with joyful hearts!

One of her favorite Bible verses is Zephaniah 3.17: "The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing."
