Hello! My name is Becca G, and I have been serving in different ministries through music since I was a teenager. Growing up in Paynesville, MN made it easy to be part of On Call here in Willmar, and I was blessed to spend 11 years serving with Youth For Christ as a full-time Musicianary (music missionary) both here in Minnesota and in Bogotá Colombia where I also taught English as a second language. Since July 2017, I have been back at First Covenant Church singing in choir and on worship team, and I am honored for this new opportunity to serve as my home church's Worship Director.

Back in 2005, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music as a vocalist through Saint Cloud State University where I learned so much about ministry and discipleship through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. For the next three years, I am excited to be studying a Master's Degree in Counseling online through Crown College. 

I am the proud aunt of six amazing nieces and nephews, a sister to my two amazing brothers, and an incredibly loved daughter to my wonderful parents. Jesus, coffee, laughter and good music are my favorite things, as well as purple and the number 23.

My desire is to lead others to encounter Christ through the gift of music, not only through singing or playing instruments, but through a contagious child-like faith and obedience to the One who created us to worship Him no matter what the circumstance. 

Psalm 108:1 "My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul."
1 Thessalonians 2:8 "so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well."
