love for the Lord, his love for his wife, Jess, and his love
for creation are the most significant. Colt and his beautiful
wife, Jess, were married in May of 2005 and are the
parents to two very active German Shepherds, Aragorn and
Leonidas. Colt loves to surf, longboard, ski, kayak, and will

Tulsa's First Christian Church. She is an integral part of our
music program. Not only does she serve as organist and
pianist, but also selects and arranges music for traditional
worship, special services and concerts. Susie is also the
Director of Children and Youth music programs. She
developed a love of church music as a child, as she listened
to her father at the piano every Sunday, and eventually
became pianist for children's church at age 9. After earning
her BME from the University of Tulsa, she spent several
years traveling across the country, singing, acting and
musical directing. Upon returning to Tulsa, she taught
music for Tulsa Public Schools, and directed the American
Theatre Company's children's musical theatre program.
Susie's husband, Rex, and their children, P.J. and Teddy , all
share her passion for the arts and humanities.
Isaac says, "As the Praise Service moves in a new direction, we look forward to
joining with Harvard Avenue Christians in lifting up Christ through our music."
