Pamela began her own musical journey at age six and was trained classically by a wonderful instructor in rural Kentucky for 11 years before she moved to Dallas, TX to further her education. She attended Christ for the Nations Institute where she completed their music program and graduated from the School of Worship and the Arts. While at CFNI, Pamela was taught and mentored by the director of the School of Worship, Thomas Miller, who currently leads Gateway Worship and produces phenomenal recordings with talented worship leaders such as Kari Jobe. Pamela expanded her classical knowledge to become more fluent in worship music, improvisation, jazz, and chord charts while under Mr. Miller’s instruction and gained some valuable teaching tools. She assisted Thomas in directing the worship ministry at Christ for the Nations Church and taught on staff at the school before returning to her hometown in Kentucky, where she soon resumed teaching until finally relocating to the Kansas City area in 2004. Pamela holds a bachelor’s degree from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas and is currently a graduate student at Colorado Christian University.
Pamela has played in various bands and worship teams over the years, including serving at the International House of Prayer as a musician and accompanist for their children’s choir. Pamela has two girls, ages seven and ten, and adores being a mom as well working with children through teaching. She helps lead a moms group, serves occasionally on various worship teams, volunteers with non-profit organizations that help individuals develop their potential, and is pursuing a masters degree in counseling. She is determined to devote her life to helping others become all they are called to be, whether through music, mothering, mentoring, or ministry. She is grateful for the privilege of teaching to impact the lives of many through the influence of music.
