ORGANIST / CONTEMPORARY MUSIC DIRECTOR

Phillip brings to Emmanuel an enormous breadth of musical experience and talent, for he is not only a trained classical organist, but a jazz performer as well. Phillip is a gifted singer and songwriter, and his Preludes and Postludes on the organ are usually his own compositions. Phillip loves working with kids and is a highly sought after teacher of piano and organ at North Country Music.

A theater major from the Buffalo State College, David has brought enormous creativity to Emmanuel’s worship drama program for 15 years.

Working closely with the pastors, he has made drama a powerful tool of communicating the gospel in worship.

   

CLOWN TROUPE CO-DIRECTORS: SARAH HOVEY AND GERALD HETTICK

Sarah Hovey is actually a professional clown named “Fifi” – you might catch sight of her traveling to a job in her yellow Volkswagen beetle! Sarah is also active in local theater with the Watertown Little Theater. Gerald has been a clown for 10 years – his clown name is “Jerichoco.” Sarah and Gerald work closely with the pastors and other members of our Clown Troupe to write original mimes which illustrate the sermon, make the congregation laugh, and give a touching message!
