Director of Music Ministry – Cammeron Williams

At a young age, Cammeron was introduced to music.  Her grandmother gave her a Charlie Brown piano.  The piano inspired her to play and sing in a children’s choir.  As she matured, she would study music throughout her primary education.  During Cammeron’s high school and college years, she has written music and directed choirs.  Also, she has sung for competitions, concerts and before a Grammy Award winner, Yolanda Adams. Cammeron M. Williams is a Baltimore native, a mother, a choir director, a musician and a teacher.  She is a firm believer of humility, love and putting trust in God and not in man.  Her personal and professional backgrounds have an array of cultural influences that has helped her to adapt, accept and appreciate similarities and differences in people.

Cammeron will soon be a graduate of Morgan State University, with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance.  With her education and experiences, her intentions are to teach private music lessons and to work within a church.

Cammeron believes in the scripture that “faith without works is dead.”  Having faith in God will open doors, to developed new relationships, to have an open mind, to have love and to show love despite of differences and to use the talents and gifts that God’s has  given us to embrace one another.  As her faith continues to build, she appreciates the opportunity that Trinity United Church of Christ accepted her as the new Director of Music Ministry.
