Administrative Assistant, Dorothy Ashton

Having the gift of organization and administration is key to working in a church office.  Dorothy joined this Disciple of Christ congregation in 1986 and she uses her God-given gifts of service daily in the church office.  She loves the tasks of using her creativity and meeting people who come to the church office.  From creating bulletins to managing emails and more, she is now in her 12th year of serving the church as Administrative Assistant to the Pastor and to the congregation.

Barbara has held various sacred positions ranging from organist/pianist to Music Director.  She studied music at the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory in Ohio and the Cleveland Institute of Music.  Barbara has also been the stadium organist for the MLB team the Cleveland Indians.  Other than her passion for music, Barbara enjoys pickleball, running and knitting.
