Christy is a schinger, songwriter, recording artist and worship leader. She has a Certificate in Worship Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and leads worship in jails, prisons, conferences, celebrate recovery meetings, church events and services, revivals and more.  She serves on a prison ministry team “Sing for the King Ministries” with her husband, James, and former inmate and friend, Johnny. They offer worship services to the incarcerated through praise and worship, the preaching of the Word, and a testimony of a life changed in prison. Christy started writing music in 2016 using God’s Word.  She began leading these songs in prisons and at other venues and was overwhelmed at the impact they were making in the lives of offenders and others.  She is donating a copy of her album to every institution in Missouri to encourage offenders and point them to Jesus and the Bible.  She also serves on the worship team at her church, Cornerstone Baptist Church in Sedalia, MO.  Christy and James have been married for 25 years and have two grown sons, Cameron (wife, Danii) and Christian (wife, Sydney) and granddaughter, Faye.
