Gabi has been attending Anniston First her whole life. She sang in all of the AFUMC children’s choirs and singing and touring with the Voice of Truth youth choir. Many people in this congregation fondly remember her younger years on top of the piano, singing with Little Women. In 2013, she joined the praise team to fill the need for a guitarist. Under the guidance of Jason Wright, Gabi has been challenged to be flexible and grow her skills as a vocalist and as a guitarist. She has truly grown up in front of this church’s congregation! Gabi attended Huntingdon Leadership Academy for two years, and she completed Local Church Lay Servant Training. She is passionate about using music to reach God’s people. Outside of this church, Gabi regularly leads worship for Celebrate Recovery at Wedowee FUMC. She was a worship leader and mentor for SIS (Sisters in Salvation, a group for teen girls). Gabi spent many years in theatre, performing with CCT Elite, CharACTers Entertainment, and helping with productions at Piedmont High School. Gabi spent six years performing with Oxford Christian School Concert Choir, a high school choir for homeschool students, which meets weekly at this church. She served as Vice President and Fundraising Chair, and she helped plan their tour to Washington DC. She also loved performing with the choir at the Governor’s Mansion and at a Veteran’s Home in Pell City. Gabi is a proud dog mom of a spoiled rescue pup, Simon. In no particular order, her hobbies include drinking coffee, spending time with her family, taking naps, binge-watching Netflix, pampering animals, and helping people. (And, of course, playing many instruments.)
