I'll serve as interim/transitional musician at Park Avenue Christian Church from early February until the summer, directing the choir and organizing a team of musicians to lead a multilingual, intersectional, and theologically progressive worshipping community in New York City.

The work includes: 
- bringing more consistent thematic unity and focus to worship, especially in expressions of sung prayer and praise;
- continued integration of music from varied musical traditions and styles, including African-American, African, Latinx, and other global sources;
- training and mentoring music leaders in practices that engage and strengthen congregational participation;
- continued modeling of healthy, clear communication patterns between music staff and church staff, including planning processes and procedures that help alleviate anxiety and last-minute changes.
