Music Director
E-mail Renae Timbie

Coffee Profile: Renae says, “Though a nutty, Colombian roast coffee with some cream warms my heart most days, there aren’t enough Pumpkin Spice Lattes in this world to satisfy my love for them.  Best time to drink them? Any espresso drink should be consumed after a delicious dinner, sitting around talking with family or friends. Kick of espresso to entice your taste buds, warm milk to soothe you after a long day, and just enough sweet and spice of the pumpkin to round off that dinner (steak and French fries recommended) you just consumed.”

Job Description: As our worship director, Renae aids our church in pursuing our vision of worshipping joyfully. She oversees the planning and orchestrating of all elements of our worship services including designing weekly service plans and meetings, rehearsing musicians, coordinating with all visual and sound personnel, and leading our team through services. Holding a doctoral degree in choral conducting, one of Renae’s favorite roles in the church is directing our sanctuary choir. Collaborating and creating with all people, particularly through music, is a love she enjoys with the Westminster family.
