Director of Worship
Suzanne was born and bred in the Bronx, N.Y. She received a Bachelors degree in Urban Health Management from St. John’s University in Queens, and went on to work in a major hospital in Manhattan for 7 years, get married, and buy a house in Edison, NJ. After commuting to NYC for years, Suzanne found a job in Edison. At this job she met a born again believer who invested in her life and shared the Good News. She gave her life to Jesus in 1994. Suzanne has always been involved in school choruses, church choirs, and community choirs, so when God led her to First Baptist, she quickly began serving in the music ministry, choir, and other church ministries. She joined the staff as the Worship Director in 2007. She has been married to a great guy, Mike, since 1987. They have 2 adult daughters and a cute pooch named Spryte. Her family enjoys the beach, hiking, and camping. Suzanne enjoys playing guitar and piano, has an eye for interior design, upcycles old furniture, and loves Italian food. Her passion is to give God all the praise, honor and glory He deserves, and to see the people of FBCM worship and love their God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength. One of her favorite passages is in John 4, when Jesus is speaking to the woman at the well and says, “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” Mind and heart together; true worship – that’s what she is striving for.
