My name is Suzi Byrd and I am excited to be the Pastor of Music and Worship. I am a native German – yes, I sing Silent Night auf deutsch – and I love to sing with all God’s children to God, even those (especially those) of you who think you cannot sing.

When God called me to ministry during my Walk to Emmaus in 2006, God told me that I was to help all people to sing to God. Although I have degrees in vocal pedagogy and voice, I thought that seemed like an impossible mission, but God equipped me in seminary and eventually shaped me into a pastor. To think that a German atheist could get to know and love God in a foreign land and then help others to experience the same and all through music seems like a fairy tale but, that is exactly what God did for me.

Auf Wiedersehen und Gottes Segen,
Pastor Suzi.
