Chancel Choir Director

Justin Ediger

Justin has been Elk City UMC’s Chancel Choir Director since 2008, leading the musicians during the church’s weekly Celebration service. “Prep work” for the traditional service includes Wednesday night choir rehearsals. Together, the choir works on weekly anthems and special seasonal music. The Chancel Choir performs a Christmas Cantata each year as well as special anthems for the Easter season. Justin refers to his work with the choir a “labor of love” as he thoroughly enjoys the weekly fellowship and fun interactions amongst the close group, whom he calls “a family within a family.” His love of music and working with individuals in a choir setting is his life’s work. He’s been involved with church music in some leadership form since attending Southwestern Oklahoma State University, where he graduated with both a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and a Master’s Degree in Music (vocal emphasis). He’s also the co-director of the award-winning Elk City Schools Junior and Senior High Choir programs. In his spare time he can be found on the golf course, in a deer blind, traveling or just spending time at home with his family. Justin is married to the love of his life, Jo, and together they have four children, Anna Mueller and her husband, Michael; Jonah White; Drew Ediger; and Hannah White. His favorite verse is Phillippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
