April Martin, a life-long Presbyterian, preachers' kid, and opera singer, was raised and confirmed at First Presbyterian Church in Burlington, NC. Her participation in service trips, youth group activities, national conferences, and in the music programs taught her that, if given the chance, young people can grow as leaders in the church - right now, not only in the future.
Prior to joining the Madison Ave staff, April worked as the Resident Director for the dormitory at the Cleveland Institute of Music, was a "Clubs" advisor at Montreat Conference Center, and earned a certificate in Non-profit management. She sings with Opera Companies and Symphonies in NYC and throughout the country.
April holds degrees from Maryville College in Tennessee and the Cleveland Institute of Music in Ohio.
She is thrilled to get to know the MAPC community and the vibrant youth in it! She loves sipping hot tea, hanging with dogs, and getting to know people through their stories.
