Colleen is grateful for the opportunity to serve with SGM, especially because of the role this organization has played in the lives of her five children. Colleen trained initially with her mother, studied with Raeanna Gislason, Sheryl Ruel, and Dr. Jon Ensminger, and graduated from Northland Baptist Bible College with a degree in Piano Pedagogy. An educator at heart, she loves to nurture musical growth here at SGM and as a community piano teacher. But her best-loved way to participate in music is with her local church body in the worship of her very good God.
Besides music, some of Colleen’s favorite moments are: adventuring with her husband, Ryan; teaching the Bible and connecting it to life; growing, making, and eating good food; and having meaningful conversations, especially over a rich cup of coffee.
Psalm 119 is one of Colleen’s anchor passages, especially verse 68 – “You [Yahweh] are good and do good; teach me your statutes.”
