Director and Accompanist
Angela Warner is the new director of the AMEN Chorus and is the daughter of the accompanist, Sandy Bode. Angela graduated from Grand Valley State University with her bachelor’s degree in music education and a minor in alto saxophone performance. Angela also studied piano with Dr. Coonrod in Interlochen for several years. Music and teaching have always been a big part of her life, but after having two special needs children, she felt called to be trained in an alternative therapy called “The Anat Baniel Method” and is currently a practitioner in Cadillac. She continues however, to use her musicality at Rehoboth. She has directed the Rehoboth choir for over 8 years and has organized and directed special services throughout the years. Angela is very excited about this opportunity to direct this wonderful group that Harvey Lucas has established and grown, and continue the mission of helping our local community.

Classically trained in piano and organ, she has accompanied numerous choirs and soloists as well as played for regular church services for 35 years. More recently she has recorded 3 CD's which include original compositions and hymn arrangements. She is the mother of 5 children and has 5 grandchildren. She is also a Registered Nurse and lives with her husband on a dairy farm in northern Michigan.
