Janet Shibly, Director of Music

Janet started as the Director of Music Ministries at St. Philip in January of 2017.  She has been teaching music in public schools for 30 years, and is excited to be sharing her love of music and the Lord in this different and exciting way. A proud graduate of Colorado State University, Janet earned her Bachelor of Music in Education degree in 1980.  Although originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, she has lived most of her life in Colorado. Janet has been an active member of St. Philip for 32 years and has sung in the choir for all of them. When two daughters were younger, she led Sunday School music for nearly 10 years. Her late husband, C. J., often played the trombone and tambourine for worship services and fellowship functions. She adores her family and her dogs, who are all named after musicians. Sometimes the grand-dogs join the party. Working in the yard, reading, and watching the Broncos are three of her favorite activities. She would like to extend an invitation to everyone to become involved in the music ministries at St. Philip and make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
