Lynn Walker : Apprentice Ministry Coordinator
My husband, Adam, and I were recently married on July 5, 2013. He is currently serving in the Marines so we are enjoying sending snail mail and creative care packages back and forth whilewaiting for the day we get to be in the same state permanently! Right now we have no kids of our own and are living a pretty quiet life.
I started attending Freedom Life approximately two years ago when a friend invited me. I immediately fell in love with the place and felt like I belonged! Freedom Life truly changed the way I see God. The passion Freedom Life ignited in me to seek to know more of God continues to grow and grow.
I have lived in Arizona, New Mexico, Japan, Virginia, and now Texas! After graduating from Christopher Newport University with a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in Psychology, I felt God calling me to move to Texas and help start up another campus of the church. It has been one of my greatest adventures so far and I have loved every minute of it. I have even learned to love Mexican food. ;)
I am excited to see what God has in store for me and the church!
Random facts: I can't say "no" to macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, grilled hot dogs, or Japanese curry (and rice!!). My appetite is way bigger than I look. The only real goal I ever had for my life was to impact at least one other person in a positive manner. I have never seen the Wizard of Oz... and I really do not care to. I love to dance... anytime and anywhere!
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!
