Becky is a gifted teacher, musician, and worship leader. She readily uses those God given gifts to edify the body of Christ. As a Bible teacher, Becky enjoys engaging in the hard work of studying scripture and then relevantly sharing the truth of God's Word in various women's ministry settings. As a worship leader, both personally and on staff at Leptondale Bible Church, she has a remarkable ability to usher others into heartfelt worship through music. Her sharp theological mind, coupled with her musical/vocal talent, enables her to lead worship music that encourages wholehearted singing of songs by which believers reflect God's glory and delight in His presence.
Becky is not a "performer." She is a highly transparent worship leader. Her music is always Christ centered and her teaching consistently magnifies God. Becky displays a growing walk with the Lord. Without reservation, I recommend her to any women's group as I am confident she will be used to build up and bless others.

Caren Avery is a woman who consistently encourages other believers to grow in their walk with the Lord. Her musical abilities and experience as a church worship leader encourage others to enter into heartfelt worship before the Lord. Caren's study of the Word, along with her love of teaching, enables women to draw on God's strength and learn His will for their lives. She is known for using Scripture to encourage women to practice their Christianity and learn how to walk that out in their daily lives. She truly has a gift of studying God's Word and teaching others in ways that personally relate to a variety of life circumstances. Caren invests so much of her time and energy discipling and mentoring others. She always takes time to listen, to share her knowledge of the scriptures, and to encourage women to keep pressing on with the Lord.

It has been my privilege to have known Caren Avery both as a fellow student of the Word of God, and as an intimate friend for nineteen years. During that time God has grown her skills for leadership in and out of the church, and her organizational skills as a dedicated worship director through her musical talents. But these traits pale in comparison to her greatest gift: to study the WORD, to dig for insights and answers, then to communicate truths to others. Through these years she has chosen not just to study but to apply God's Word in her own life, remaining steadfast during trials. Her desire has consistently been to develop biblical character. God has used her mightily in my own life not just because she is a trained Christian counselor but because she has the unique ability to be upfront and truthful without antagonizing. I cherish her as a friend who can be trusted to always point my thoughts upward to the LORD. Caren Avery is an excellent teacher because she is an excellent student.
