Presented by Cheryl Kirking, a songwriter and worship leader who has led worship at Gethsemane before. Cheryl began her music ministry while a teenager, when she got her first guitar and started writing songs for her Sunday School class of 4 and 5 years olds. While serving as the children’s and youth director for the Sun Prairie United Methodist Church over 25 years ago, she was encouraged by her church family to branch out into a music ministry. Cheryl’s husband, David, is here today and frequently helps run her sound. Cheryl and David have led concerts and worship at hundreds of churches nationwide. They are the parents of 26 year old triplets who through the years helped haul sound equipment. Cheryl is also an award-winning author of six books, including “RIPPLES OF JOY” and her newest children’s book, “Evangeline the Dancing Holstein.” Cheryl’s favorite thing to do is to encourage others to use their God-given gifts.
