Meet Illuminate – Worship Arts Finalists



Where is your group from?
Our group is from Toledo, Ohio.

What church do you attend and who is the pastor?
We are from First Apostolic Church, Pastor Kris Dillingham and Bishop J. Mark Jordan.

When and how did you form your group?
Our group was formed in August of 2009 as just a bunch of young girls who wanted to get together and do sign language, led by Sarah Kufel. It eventually grew to include 20+ members and is now a full-fledged drama team!

What motivated you to enter NATS 2013?
When we heard that NATS had created a worship arts category, we knew that we just had to try out and see if we would be good enough to get chosen. 

Who would you like to send a ‘shout out’ to?
We would like to send a shout out to our pastor Kris Dillingham, our bishop J. Mark Jordan, and our youth pastor Michael and Kristen Cavin. Also, to our parents (Roger & Dana Allee, Greg & Tina Baker, Kevin & Jennifer Condon, Kris and Jen Dillingham, Richard Fejes, Gary and Rachel Kufel, Jim & Debbie Jennings, Mark & Bonnie Johnson, Jim & Carolyn Lucas, Don & Kris Sherriff). Because before we had fans, we had our parents!
