MUSIC DIRECTOR
Merri-Lynn and husband Kevin have 3 adult children: Candace, Corey and Collin, and are grandparents to 2 perfect little boys.  They are thoroughly enjoying this stage of life they are in this journey together.   Growing up in a talented musical Christian family has greatly influenced Merri-Lynn. She has been involved with music since infancy when she was laid in her mother’s accordion case while her parents and older sister played and sang in church. She climbed out of the accordion case and onto the drums, and began taking piano lessons at an early age. From there she developed an interest in bass guitar while continuing (with parents insistence) on finishing piano studies. She achieved her Grade 9 Royal Conservatory along with her Grade 3 History and Harmony.
As a Pastor’s daughter, Merri-Lynn was always involved in church music. She has over 30 years of teaching experience in the Pembroke area and loves leading people in praise and worship each Sunday at PPT. She loves investing in people to not only improve their musical abilities but to also build their Biblical understanding and encourage spiritual growth.
