Welcome to our New Staff!

The Fountains is thrilled to welcome two outstanding additions to our staff: Jamy Culp and Cecilia Obrien. We look forward to their leadership in the areas of music and youth!

Choir Director

Growing up playing the piano and singing, she has participated in numerous vocal and musical ensembles from grade school through high school, performed with country and pop groups in Arizona and California, and acquired a minor in vocal jazz and classical piano from Arizona State University. Jamy has been a worship leader and part time choral director in churches around the valley and has shared her passion for music with husband Steve Culp for the past 17 years. Jamy and Steve have 2 boys, Ryan 5 and Ethan 7, enjoy playing tennis, ping pong and billiards and look forward to sharing our gift of music!

 

Youth Coordinator

Cecilia Obrien ver 2Cecilia Obrien and her husband Marc moved to Arizona in 1997. Two years later we settled in Gold Canyon where their daughter Allison was born. After volunteering for several years at Gold Canyon United Methodist, she accepted a position as youth director. She received a Masters in Education from ASU and taught special education for two years. As a family, the Obriens enjoy playing tennis, going to museums, road trips and local eateries. Cecilia enjoys listening to NPR while baking or drawing and watching independent movies (especially of the Wes Anderson variety!). Cecilia says she is inspired by and motivated to serve young people. Her mission is to guide and encourage young people to follow Gandhi’s lead: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
