Caitlin Cavannaugh

Outreach and Social Media Consultant, Worship Leader

Having deeply enjoyed being a cantor at Chilson Hills since 2021, Caitlin is so excited to have the opportunity to sing here more often! Caitlin is a professional singer and actor who found her love of singing in church choir as a child. Throughout her life, she has found her deepest connection to God through song and is honored to be able to share that with the congregation at Chilson. She is also overjoyed to serve the Chilson Hills community as a youth service events coordinator. While in college, she coordinated a youth concert series at her home church in Illinois, which raised substantial funds for charity. Finally, she’s excited to “market for God,” as her mother says, as Chilson’s social media consultant. Be sure to follow along at @chilsonhillschurch on Instagram and Facebook!
