Brenda Hallock

Brenda Headshot.jpg

Born in Southwest Virginia, Brenda grew up in Abingdon, where she attended High School. She studied at Eastern Kentucky University and then moved to Texas where she continued her studies graduating from North Texas University with a degree in Business Administration/Education.

While in College, Brenda married Eddy Hallock, Pastor of Lake Shore Baptist Church where they served for 11 and ½ years and during that time became parents of 3 boys, Jeremy, Ben and Gabriel. Upon moving to Lincoln to become pastor of Southview Baptist Church they became parents of their fourth child, Hannah. After 6 and ½ years in Lincoln, they moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to become missionaries and served in that country for 16 years before returning to Texas where they served at Tallowood Baptist church in Houston for the last 13 years.

Brenda has the gift of service. She loves to minister in practical ways to people and has practiced amazing hospitality all her life. She has ministered to women’s groups in the United States and Brazil and to Hispanic ladies in Houston and has also led women’s Bible studies. Brenda led medical mission teams in Brazil and saw God work in powerful ways in that ministry. She has also been on many mission trips in over 20 countries where she made a practice of giving out reading glasses, sharing the gospel as she ministered and winning untold number to Christ over the years. Brenda is currently a real estate agent with Realm Real Estate Professionals.

Brenda has over the years helped Eddy plant four churches in Brazil and continues to help plan mission events at Tallowood Baptist Church in Texas.

Brenda and Eddy now have added to their family 3 daughters-in-law and one son-in-law. They also have 3 granddaughters who they thoroughly enjoy.

Worship Leaders

Elizabeth M. Anderson

Elizabeth is a former Academic and Life Coach from Union College, a private institution where she was employed for 16 years. Life events have moved her into another season in her life in which she is writing an autobiography, a musical, and several devotional books. She felt led by God to go to Washington, DC, to do a 7-day prayer walk called the “Jericho Walk of Faith” around the United States Capitol Building. Plans are to return to Washington in 2018 for another walk.

She is a member of the choir and praise team at the Allon Chapel in Lincoln. Most notably, she has sung with the world-renowned Aeolians from Oakwood College (now Oakwood University) in Huntsville, AL; the very accomplished Abendchor Choir, a traveling group from Abendmusik; and IMAGES, a gospel recording ensemble that had traveled widely and was a part of the Nebraska Arts Council touring circuit.  Elizabeth has wholeheartedly dedicated her life to serving God and prays that anyone who sees her will see the light of Christ.

Joann Herrington

Joann’s life has been about music ever since her parents taught her and her brothers to sing as a part of the family circle at morning and evening worship. Her nurturing church family encouraged youth participation in worship, and she served as organist, pianist, and member of the sanctuary choir from age 12. She recorded an album with the Trebleaires, a trio of young ladies, at age 13.  For a number of years, music was her vocation. 

After graduating Union College with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education, she worked as a vocal and instrumental teacher in schools. She performed with the Omaha Opera Company chorus and was alto soloist in Handel’s Messiah. Her career path led her out of professional music into educational administration and elementary teaching, but she stills enjoys music ministry. One of her favorite pursuits is writing music for children, and she has composed more than 200 memory verse songs, commissioned and published.

Mark your calendars and invite your girlfriends!
