Director of Music Ministry: Barbara Shinn

Choir Director: Lara buckingham

In 1995, a young seventh grade girl became a student of one of the best vocal teachers in the Permian Basin and that teacher was our own Barbara Shinn. Barbara was/is mentor, teacher, friend, and like another mother. With her guidance, I discovered my love of music and soon graduated from Tarleton State University with a Music Education degree with an emphasis in choral conducting. I began singing in Barbara’s church choir, Asbury, twelve years ago off and on as well as conducting in Barbara’s absents.   I have worked as an Elementary Music teacher for the past twelve years, developing musicals and special choirs to serve the students in the Permian Basin. I now work part time with the Asbury family to create music for our congregation.
