They have 4 kids ranging from 21-14 years old, and all 4 kids are involved in worship teams across the different Gateway campuses.
While studying Music Education at Texas Christian University, Jill started teaching voice and piano privately, and has now been doing so for 25 years. The last 8 years or so have been devoted to learning and teaching the Pop-Style vocal technique that she learned while studying with Brian Schexnayder.
