Anita Breen

Worship Leader


I am a mother of four. And a military wife. I believe in being kind and showing the love of God to people. Love is a verb!
I love going for long walks, singing, theatre, and eating out! I am also a college student working toward a degree in nursing.
God has changed my life and it is an honor to get to serve Him doing something I love.
