LINDA COLLINS
Director of Worship Arts Ministry

Blessed to be born into a God-loving, musical family, Linda couldn’t help learning to praise God in song. Her first public solo, I’m just a Christian Cowgirl” at age 3, complete with hat and rocking horse, must have been quite a sight.
From small town Aberdeen, WA to the big city and Seattle Pacific University, she prepared to teach secondary Math with a music minor. She worked for Safeway in retail, management and IT for 17 years. During that time, she married Ken and was blessed with three wonderful children, now grown. Jesse & Tami (with Sophie, Roman and Blaise) reside in Redmond. Jamie & Peter Dyer live in Long Beach, CA, and Stephanie & Nate Long in Bellevue.
Linda and Ken began attending Alderwood in 1980, and Linda began directing the choir “for just a year” when Pastor Bill Mays transitioned from associate pastor/choir director to senior pastor in 1988. She is continually amazed at the opportunities God has given her here at ACC. Soli Deo Gloria!
