Duane directs our choir in songs of inspiration and worship, providing a space of fellowship for choir members. He is a unique fit for this role because he approaches it with the personality of a teacher, rather than a perfectionist. He gives grace to imperfect singing and encourages choir members toward improvement from wherever they start. He is also passionate about reintroducing the older songs to the congregation in his role as Traditional Worship Leader, as they can be just as inspirational as contemporary music. His hope is that in the same way a popular song can be relatable and memorable, our congregation would have the same interaction with the traditional songs. Beyond his responsibilities at the church, he enjoys waterskiing, wakeboarding, horseback riding, working on his ranch, and his computer programming job.
