Katherine Amerson, Worship Leader and Josh Amerson, Sound Technician

Katherine and Josh met at SWU and connected through their mutual love for traveling and leading worship with the Southern Wesleyan University Singers. Katherine graduated and joined our staff as worship leader in May 2021. In addition to worship, Katherine also feels called to ministry through education. She is a full-time kindergarten teacher in Pickens County and is also pursuing a masters degree in literacy.

Josh is currently completing his final semester at SWU and plans to pursue a masters degree in music.
