LaVatta Hines : Worship Leader
Writing your own bio is just an odd process to me, but I’ll take a shot at………lol. Born and raised in Hampton, Virginia I was introduced to music at birth. At an early age my mother caught me singing in my room and after that she had me singing in church just about every Sunday. When I wasn’t singing I was always front row watching her sing and lead worship. That started my education in music and ministry early. It wasn’t until later in life that I realized that worship was what I was called to do. Those childhood moments on stage were just building blocks for a greater calling.
I’ve had the joy of serving in FLCWorship for the last 5 years. I’ve had a life filled with awesome opportunities. I believe commitment to the Lord and excellence has allowed my journey to take me places I could only dream of. As well as being a vocal director for several stage plays, I’ve had the opportunity to tour with Ricardo Sanchez and share the stage with Israel Houghton and New breed. One of my most cherished memories is meeting and opening for the iconic Dr. Maya Angelou.
No matter what stage I’m on I find myself still just as excited as the little girl singing in her room. May I never lose that feeling.
Random Facts: I love food. Chick fil a is my best-friend. Goobers is my close friend!
Timmy & Tina George : Student Ministry Leads
My wife Christina and I both hail from the GREAT state of Maryland. We have two puppies named Jack and Gus that make up most of the photos in our iPhones' camera roll. The Air Force brought us here in 2010, at which point we bought cowboy boots and made San Antonio our home.
Youth are our passion. We love our teens and seek to equip them as the spiritual leaders of their generation. Our prayer is that Jesus uses our ministry to create a spiritually liberating movement that explodes through our schools and past our country's borders.
Random facts: Timmy is bi-lingual, according to the military anyway. Christina is a professional photographer. We met at youth group and started dating when we were 14. Timmy's favorite food is casserole-style macaroni and cheese. Christina would literally cut somebody if it meant getting free Chick-Fil-A. We have a goddaughter named Jessica who is the coolest kid ever and makes up the rest of the photos in our camera roll.
Jasmine Herron : FLC Kids Co-Lead
My husband, Antoine, and I are transplants to this city we now call home. We are high school sweethearts from the small community of Rockport-Fulton on the coast of Texas. I don't believe that we moved to San Antonio by chance and found Freedom Life Church here. It was very much God's timing. It is crazy to now see how close we lived to our Hampton campus when my husband was stationed in Norfolk,VA. I cannot tell you how many times we drove by Freedom Life Church during our year there.
