Music Directors Diane & Lisa Van Deurzen-Otey

Diane and Lisa joined First Congregational Church of South Haven as Co-Music Directors in the fall of 2021.  Their goal is to choose music which supports Pastor Jeffrey and Mike’s themes and messages for Sunday Worship.  They also hope that the music inspires you and makes you feel good.

Lisa is originally from Oregon and Diane is from Wisconsin, but they lived in Tucson, AZ for the last 30 years.  They were Music Directors at St. Francis In the Foothills in Tucson UMC for the last 28 years. Diane and Lisa also worked at The Good Shepherd UCC in Sahuarita, AZ for the last 6 years. They have been fortunate to have traveled the world, performing at Jazz & Blues Festivals and venues in Switzerland, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, The Netherlands, Canada, Mexico, and Australia.

Diane and Lisa now live in St. Joe and are so happy to be part of the First Congregational family in South Haven
