Among many gifts Hunter has brought to our congregation, the way he trains and educates our choir has been more than impressive.  Our choir not only continues to grow in number, but in the quality of sound.  An added benefit is that we have such musical talent in our congregation.  All of these gifts would have limited value without the sincerity and depth of Hunter’s Christian faith.  We truly see him as one of our ministers.

Hunter’s musical background includes a variety of performances in symphonies, operas, musicals, choirs and as a featured soloist.  His talent has been recognized with numerous scholarships and distinguished awards.

If there is anything Hunter can do to be helpful, contact him at hfbirkhead@gmail.com or call at (405)769-2717.
