Faculty

Vivien Hibbert

Author, teacher, musician and worship leader, Vivien Hibbert was born in New Zealand and began full time ministry in 1977 as a teacher of praise and worship. In 1985, Vivien immigrated to the U.S. and has served in full-time pastoral and/or music ministry until today. Vivien is a co-founder of The Worship Arts Conservatory, the first online school of worship. Currently, she is the instructor of the online School of Worship at the Eagles international Training Institute in Dallas.
 
In 1997 Vivien was privileged to take part in the Promise Keepers Worship Summit where she was involved in developing a strategy for establishing worship internationally with the goal of unifying diverse cultures. She is a regular faculty member of several worship conferences in the United States and overseas, and regularly teaches at Youth With A Mission both domestically and abroad.  As one example of her desire to see the glory of God spread throughout the nations, Vivien was privileged to work with FarsiPraise, Christian converts from Islam, who produce evangelistic teaching and worship for Iranian satellite TV. She longs to see ALL nations, generations and denominations involved in a reformation of worship where God’s presence becomes the primary focus and purpose of Church gatherings. Vivien has ministered in over twenty nations and is a member of ICE (International Council of Ethnodoxologists).

 

Vivien has many years of experience in a wide variety of ministries including teaching in church services, bible schools, prisons, hospitals, conferences, retreats, women’s conferences, youth meetings in any nation or denomination. It is her joy to serve the Body of Christ and call them to deeper worship and intimacy with Him.
 
Vivien has produced several music tapes over the years.  Her most recent musical project is titled "Songs From The Father’s Heart," an inspirational instrumental soaking CD based on the songs the Father sings over each of us. This CD was recorded in Norway in 2013 along with other worship musicians. Another CD, "Shepherd's Suite," is a soaking CD based on Psalm 23. This music gives you a foundation to wait on the Lord - meditating on each verse of this beautiful Shepherd Psalm. In 2016 Vivien began a CD project that is intended as a prayer CD with the sounds of many nations.

Vivien's book, "Prophetic Worship," published in July of 1999, continues to be an excellent and insightful resource on worship. You will find depths of teaching and revelation in this insightful book. It has recently been re-published and is now available for purchase online! She also has a unique devotional book entitled "Praise Him." In 2015, Vivien has also published ten booklets of her notes on worship and deeper life.

JoEl Kikke (Joey)

It sounds like a cliché, but I have always been interested in art. I remember drawing on everything as a child. I became a Jesus Follower during the Jesus Movement, and wanted to be an artist for Jesus! I earned a BA in Studio Art and Secondary Education from Northeastern Illinois University. After a few years teaching art in the Chicago Public Schools, Snippets of Life Studio was launched. Now I spend my time painting and teaching workshops. Next to the amazing family and friends I’ve been blessed with, being an artist for Jesus has been the thrill of my life. AND the best is yet to come!

Ginny Ching-Yin Lo

Her organization curates bi-annual public community performances showcasing Christian artists sharing the stage with non-Christian artists. She performed in Project Dance Paris 2018 among 40 international performers to amplify hope and peace. Ginny is hosting the first Project Dance Chicago 2020. It is always her passion to reach out to people beyond church goers.  

 

Ginny trained with the Hong Kong Ballet and Madame Boltsov in Chicago. She danced professionally

with Boltsov Classical Ballet and Illinois Ballet Theater. She holds a B.A. in Dance from Columbia College and got M.A. in Communication and Culture from Trinity International University with a thesis project on “Art & Theology.” She was a guest faculty at Tongji University Dance Education in Shanghai for 2 years teaching ballet, modern, improvisation & choreography.

As a missionary in China for 4 years, she led a migrant performing troupe using performing arts to share the gospel, which brought thousands to faith. Ginny has served as the Dance Department Head of Karitos since 2015. For more information on Ginny, please visit:
