Becky Verner

Director of Traditional Music, Traditional Service Worship Leader, Coordinator for Senior Adult Ministry
Office: 703.361.2146 x291

As Director of Traditional Music, I work with over 30 voices in our Sanctuary Choir and with 13 handbell ringers in Evensong Bells and serve as a keyboard musician for our worship times. As a worship leader for our 9:00 am Traditional service, I spend time weekly planning those experiences. We use a variety of musical styles and a number of talented singers and instrumentalists in our worship times.
I serve as the coordinator for our Senior Adult ministry and plan (with a committee) monthly events for our members who are 60 years old and better. I also coordinate our Condolence committees. The women and men on these 3 committees prepare a delicious meal for families who have experienced a loss, which allow these families and their friends a time of sharing and fellowship.
I love the Manassas community and serve as the Artistic Director of the Manassas Chorale and the older group of the Greater Manassas Children’s Choir. In addition to participating in community events throughout the year, I’ve served on a City of Manassas committee and am a member of the American Choral Directors Association. I hold a BME degree from East Carolina University and have done graduate work in Church Music from Shenandoah University. In my free time, I enjoy traveling (3 musical tours of Europe, 3 performances in New York City), shopping and relaxing at home. My family includes Dan, a retired English teacher and current author, two married daughters, Amy and Alyssa, and an undisiplined cat named Nacho.
