Regina Ontjes, the Pastoral Assistant for Worship & Music, came to Brandywine Valley Baptist Church from Atlanta, Georgia. She has a Bachelor’s of Music Education from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama and studied voice and music ministry at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. She and her husband, Gene, as well as one son and daughter-in-love, Jason & Rachel, now reside in Pennsylvania. Another son & daughter-in-love, Brandon & Amanda, live locally and also attend Brandywine.
I desire to serve God at Brandywine by musically conducting an adult group of musicians (Jubilate Deo) that have dedicated themselves to use their God-given talents to further the worship of God at Brandywine. Their desire for excellence in their ministry challenges me to work at my highest level of praising God through music. The children’s ministry is a sheer joy for me, to assist in guiding their young minds in understanding how God can use them in His work through music and through their other talents.
Regina’s favorite verse is Romans 5:8. ” God demonstrates His love for us in this, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
