Director of Music

Su Ofe loves all things music and art and says her time singing and practicing with the Spirit Tones (FCC choir) each week stokes her soul. A fine arts major for undergrad with a master's degree in education, Su is a college vice president by day, but says, "Wednesday nights and Sundays I recharge my batteries at FCC." She invites anyone who has a love for music or worship arts to offer his or her gifts to the FCC arts ministries.
