diane daly

DIRECTOR OF WORSHIP MINISTRIES

Diane Daly leads our Adult Chancel Choir. She completed her certification studies through the Choristers Guild and continues to take courses with them every summer to improve her skills and help her to inspire the choirs. When she is not working with the choirs or the Worship Committee, she and her husband Bob are busy running Windy Willow Farm in Perkasie, PA! The work she does as a riding instructor and horsewoman would be a fulltime job for the average person, but somehow Diane manages to pack all of these activities into her very long and productive days. For that we at LVC are very grateful!

If you feel called to volunteer in music ministry, please contact Diane below.

Rick is driven to build up the next generation in knowing the truth of God’s Word and their belonging in Jesus Christ. He aims to create a dynamic connection of engaging the youth in day-to-day realities and discover God’s love and salvation to follow and serve by the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Rick and his wife, Gwen, grew up together in LVC youth group (circa 1980s). They share over 23 years of Christ-centered marriage and raised their twin daughters, who attend Liberty University.
