Reflections on 10 Years of Service to Shallowford

Emily Floyd, Director of Music Ministries

Emily Floyd's 10 years anniversary

Has it really been 10 years since I became your Director of Music Ministries? I’m grateful to be celebrating the last decade of music at Shallowford, and it has been a wonderful exercise to reflect back at all that has come about in music ministry.

Shallowford friends – you have empowered me to do my best work and to foster beauty and community, which are so important in our life together. I’m certain that you have kept me and the entire music staff in your prayers. Always exercising generosity, you have shown your appreciation in many ways. You have helped me serve the greater church by allowing time for me to be away teaching and conducting at the Montreat Music and Worship Conference, teaching at the Choristers Guild Institute, conducting school honor choirs throughout Georgia, and volunteering in choir classrooms at nearby schools.
