She was mentored by the worship team at Yakima Alliance Church in Washington, where she discovered her passion for worshipping the Lord through music. She moved to Redding and received her music degree from Simpson University, where she served as the student conductor. Cheryl has taught choir at Redding Christian School, directed the worship team and choir at Destiny Fellowship, and served as music director for three youth musicals put on by the Redding Arts Project.
She has also taught piano proficiency classes and music theory as an adjunct professor in Simpson’s Music Department. Mrs. Dummer finds great joy to still be connected to so many former students and their families.
