I’m Erica Barnes. I began attending Jupiter First Church in 2002 at the invitation of Randy Sonntag, whom I worked with at Independence Middle School. Since then, I have been immersed in the music ministry and have directed various children’s choirs, Christmas performances and summer music camp here at the Church. More recently, I served on Church Council from 2019-2020.
In my personal life, I own and operate my family’s plumbing and air conditioning business, General Plumbing & Air Conditioning, with my husband Daniel and am a conductor for the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches community youth choir. Our daughter Aubrey and son Danny were both baptized at JFC. Aubrey was also confirmed here and has been a featured soloist on numerous occasions during worship as well as volunteering for the children’s ministry and VBS.
Aside from my music interests, I enjoy bringing teams together to work in concert toward a common goal. As Council Chair, I am looking forward to helping coordinate the efforts of our entire church family and am excited about the future of our beloved JupiterFIRST.
