Chloe Montgomery is originally from Highland, CA and recently graduated from California Baptist University. She is currently attending and serving at The Grove Community Church. Chloe is passionate about worshiping God through music and loves to see how the Lord uses musical worship at camp to work in students’ lives. Her prayer for Summer 2023 is that students would learn more about who God is through all aspects of camp and that the musical portion would leave them in awe of the saving grace we receive from Jesus Christ’s work on the cross.
