Our Music Director, Dan Oie, began working at Redeemer in 2015. Dan is highly skilled in piano and organ performance, and in leading ensembles of choirs, handbells, instrumentalists and drama. He also leads the musical instruction of students in Redeemer Christian Academy, along with teaching piano and organ. The music he selects will challenge each musician to use, develop and serve with their skills in worshipping God and in building up the family of faith. When not playing or working at church, Dan also works with community theater, a big band, an oldies band, playing at Senior residences, and working with adults with disabilities. Dan and his wife, Cheryl Oie, are frequent guest performers and have recorded a CD of hymns called Saint Songs.
