Lisa believes that music as the ability to speak to human beings in ways that mere words cannot. Its place in worship is a way for God's people to corporately offer our praise and thanksgiving. She believes that singing is essential to real worship and that the role of our choir and musicians is to enhance worship and help lead the congregation in this act of worship.
