It is with great joy and excitement we welcome Jinhee Kim, who will be Shallowford’s full-time Organist & Associate Director of Music Ministries. Jinhee comes to us from Indiana, where she served as the Director of Music and organist at First Presbyterian Church in Martinsville (2013-2019), and later at Grace Lutheran Church in Columbus (2019-present).

In her new role at Shallowford, Jinhee will lead our handbell choirs and Joy Chorale, Shallowford’s daytime choir for adults. In addition, she will be responsible for planning and executing special music for worship on Sundays.
