MORE ABOUT TRACY: Tracy is a musician, producer, theologian and pastor. She is the Minister for Community and Congregational Engagement for Justice and Witness Ministries (JWM) in the National Setting of the the United Church of Christ.

During this time, she founded Restoration Village Arts, allowing her to work alongside communities who were actively seeking new expressions of arts, worship and theology in their local contexts. She produced several albums during that time under the creative moniker for her band, The Restoration Project.
