Pastor Jana Howson
Erik grew up as the son of an ELCA minister and a piano teacher. His earliest memories are sitting on a piano bench with his mother listening to his father sermonize. It is from this familial past that his love of music emerges; it is also the introduction to what would later become his career – musician, director and producer. For the past 23 years, he has been accompanying services, directing choirs, and celebrating music as an integral part of worship. It is this very part of worship that he so looks forward to sharing with you!
Born and raised in Indianapolis, Caryn has lived the last 30 years here in Illinois, married to my husband, John. They have four children, Joshua, Samuel, Hannah and Jeremiah. She has been involved in and attended church regularly for many years. Her faith walk began in May of 1986 when she came to know Jesus as my Savior and Lord, as well as her best friend. She considers her job a great blessing to further grow her faith in the Lord, not only through the nature of the work but also through the many wonderful people she encounters here at Faith!
