The role and importance of art in our world extend far beyond the walls of an art museum. From the beginning of time, our Creator has used the arts to call us back to Himself, to remind us that there is hope beyond this present darkness. The beauty and detail found in creation have long been a fascination of mine and are a common theme in my artwork. My lifelong passion for art led me to complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Metalsmithing & Jewelry. I also closely studied ceramics. I am thrilled to work with WACHE students as we explore art through the lenses of beauty, truth, and goodness.



Junior Singers and WACHE Singers
Raven Miller
I’m the vocal teacher for WACHE. Singing has been such a huge part of my life and has provided me with countless opportunities to serve the Lord and minister through music. The best part of that, though, has been being able to teach others how to develop the gifts God has given them and use those to serve and minister to those around them. I’ve been teaching private voice and choir in some capacity for 16 years, and I have a Bachelor's in Vocal Music Education. Currently, I help lead worship at Grace Baptist Church on Sundays, and I work with our youth band, teaching them how to lead worship and make that a part of their daily life. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to teach at WACHE and invest in this next generation of worship leaders and singers!
Guitar 1, Ukulele 1, Advanced Guitar, and Intro to Instruments 5th Grade-12th Grade
Joel Sprayberry
My name is Joel Sprayberry. I love music, but more than that, I love seeing the bulb turn on in someone's eyes when they discover their musical talent. Of course, they light up. Musical success is fun, rewarding, and life changing. I have a business degree from Texas Tech University but have been a professional musician for over 25 years. I have been playing music since I was a small child. Starting with piano lessons and then moving on to percussion. After years of working out my youth on the drums, I finally found my home inside the sound of an acoustic guitar. I am passionate about pursuing the gift God has given to me. I love opening up new worlds of musical learning and performing for students of all ages. The best part comes when I can stand back and watch my students rock out confidently with smiles on their faces. Oh, and that light-- the light in their eyes -- you can't miss it. It's magnificent.

WACHE Theater Teen Troupe 7th-12th Grades
Lindsey Neal
I’m Lindsey, the WACHE Theater Teen Troupe Director. I grew up participating in many productions and live theater has always been in my blood. My own kids perform in theater classes and productions around the area. It became something we, as a family, really had to fully dive deeper into for fun and practice. I am looking forward to teaching your kids the love for performance and performing for others.
Theater Tech 7th-12th Grades
Carrie Shearer
Hello! I’m Ms. Carrie. I experienced live theater from a very early age; my family was involved in the many musicals at our church for as long as I can remember. In college, I majored as a theater performance and vocal performance major. I was able to play the lead in such memorable plays as “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Robber Bridegroom”. (If you’re not familiar with that one, don’t worry. No one else is either.) While I did not pursue theater after college, I still treasure those experiences. There is something unique to live theater- it’s thrilling, it’s a bit scary, and it pushes you to grow. And while I loved the thrill of the performance, nothing compares to the relationships that are built. The theater is essentially a group of people working together as a team to create, using their gifts and passions. And that is hard to find anywhere else. WACHE can go above and beyond that, providing an environment that most importantly, points to God. I am so excited to begin this journey with the WACHE Theater and I can’t wait to see how these students grow in their talents!
