Gail Kelso, Director of Music & Organist
Gail was born on the Eastern Shore of Maryland but has lived most of her life in Millsboro, DE. She became the Music Director and Organist at Reformation six years ago. She has taught music for many years. Gail also teaches at Wicomico Middle School in Salisbury, MD, while serving at Reformation. She whole-heartedly believes that music is such an integral part of any worship service. It can touch people and speak to them on many levels. Music is an enhancement of our worship, not a performance. Gail's motto for church music is: "to God be the Glory." God uses our musical offerings to draw people into a closer relationship with the Lord. Gail's family is a huge part of her life. Her daughter and son-in-law in Delaware have three children, and "Granna" Gail enjoys babysitting quite often. Gail's son and daughter-in-law live in Durango, Colorado and have one daughter. In Gail's limited free time, she likes to drop anchor someplace in her clunky old pontoon boat and go crabbing. Gail loves her days with a boat full of kids giggling and squealing and enjoying the water. That is also music to God's ears!
