Special Guests

Damaris Carbaugh

Damaris Carbaugh’s depth of love and devotion for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is so evident through her special gift of song and powerful speaking ministry. You will be moved and inspired as Damaris reveals a true servant’s heart through her beautiful voice and personality which reflects her personal spiritual journey. This talented musician was a featured soloist with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and regularly appeared on the “Day of Discovery” television program. “The Collection” is the latest of her fourteen albums.

She has known the heights of success in the New York recording community. She’s sung on commercial jingles for some of the world’s biggest advertisers, including Coca Cola, Pepsi, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Minute Maid and Wrigley’s Double Mint Gum. Yet the desire of Damaris Carbaugh’s heart is to be a servant of Christ. “I don’t want a ‘career,’” she says, “I want to be faithful.”

Damaris’s many recordings, on the Discovery House Music label, reflect her broad musical experience and her personal spiritual journey.

Her gift to communicate and her zeal for the Word of God has expanded her ministry beyond singing. She has now become a much sought after conference speaker as well.

More about Damaris

Worship Leader
Ashley Carbaugh

Born into a musical family, Ashley Carbaugh has been singing since her car seat. Singing in and directing choirs, performing solos and leading worship have come so naturally that it is remarkable. Even before high school, she was leading city kids in song for her NYC church’s VBS. While pursuing her Biblical and Theological Studies major at Wheaton College (2005), she was regularly asked to perform as a soloist and with worship teams for their chapel. She even put together a Gospel choir at a Bible institute in Argentina. Ashley has studied piano, traveled internationally with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Singers, and has lost count of how many weddings she has sung at.

Ashley is currently a middle school math teacher in a charter school in NYC and a worship leader and soloist at her church.

Michael Faircloth

Michael Faircloth is a recording artist, Christian concert pianist and veteran “Artist in Residence” at Sandy Cove for more than twenty years. He is an accomplished concert pianist who regularly blesses Sandy Cove audiences with his original arrangements of classical, traditional and contemporary Christian music. Michael’s music is impressive and powerful, balanced by his humble spirit and generous sense of humor. He currently serves as pianist/accompanist for The National Christian Choir and on Sunday mornings when Michael isn’t performing elsewhere, he serves in the music ministry at New Life Community Church in Kingsville, Maryland.
