Kristina Schenck

Kristina is originally from New Jersey where she received her Bachelor of Music Education in 2001, as a vocal major, from The College of New Jersey. In 2007 she received her Master in Music Education from Boston University. Kristina and her family (husband Michael, two children, and four cats!) have lived here in Manassas since 2003.
Kristina’s life-long dream, since childhood, was to serve as a choir director and she considers herself doubly blessed to be fulfilling that calling both as the Director of Choirs at Manassas Park High School (since 2001) and now here at Grace UMC. Prior to coming to Grace, Kristina was a member of the music staff at Vienna Presbyterian Church from 2014-2023, serving in different capacities such as accompanist/organist, and Contemporary and Youth Worship Leader. She also served as the organist/accompanist at Floris UMC in Herndon from 2012-2014.
In her “spare” time you can find Kristina accompanying the Manassas Chorale and writing and performing original music as a member of the independent Christian worship duo Keyed-In 2 Christ. Kristina loves Jesus and music and is blessed to have the privilege of helping others to grow in their faith and get to know and love Jesus through the vehicle of music.
Fun Fact: Kristina has been accompanying choirs since she was in the 5th grade!
