We are ordinary people with a mission to transform our community and the world by
connecting people with God and each other. It is our purpose to unleash God's extraordinary
love with the healing, freedom, and hope available to all through Jesus Christ.
The heartbeat of the worship ministry at DOVE Westgate Church is to inspire people to encounter God. John 4:24 says that God is "seeking" or looking for true, authentic worshipers and this is the reason we desire to be a worshiping church.
We want people to live a lifestyle of worship unto God on a daily basis, to put Jesus at the center of our corporate gatherings, and to set the atmosphere for people to encounter God.
Our style of worship is contemporary in nature. We believe worship to the Lord can be expressed through songs of praise, clapping, dancing, and raising our hands. Times of quiet reflection and singing songs, psalms, and hymns are also important parts of our worship experience.

Sing unto the Lord a new song...
for the Lord is great, His mercy
is everlasting, and His truth endures
to all generations!
Cindy grew up in Lancaster County and started singing at the age of 3. She started attending DOVE with her family when she was just 8 years old. Westgate is the church where she cultivated her heart for worship and started out by leading a youth worship team at the age of 18. By the age of 20 she was one of the four worship leaders here at Westgate. She then went on to take over as the Worship Director in 2018. She is honored to now have this role of overseeing this amazing ministry and excited to see what God is doing in our congregation in worship.
Peter Dunys was born in France but spent a lot of his life traveling. He has grown up loving music from a young age, and has been a part of many ministries in the UK, leading from the age of 18. A major life change was moving to Accra, Ghana as a missionary to lead worship and young adults ministry in a church plant. “We came to dove to find relationship and a community; having a heart of worship, a great sound, and an honest heart was what drew us in. That was several years ago and we never left. It’s a privilege to serve God’s church and facilitate his plan for our community.”
Linden grew up in a home devoted to ministry. As his parents traveled to wherever God called them, Linden witnessed the faithfulness of God in their lives which resulted in the early cultivation of his own faith.
Music was always a big part of family life and Linden was singing long before he could read. Linden and his wife Kristi got married in 2000 and began attending DOVE Westgate in 2001. Linden soon got involved in the worship music ministry here after. Linden and Kristi and are so grateful and blessed to be a part of the DOVE Westgate Church family!
