Licensed Liturgical Minister
Amanda Newcomb was born and raised in Johnson City, Tennessee. She grew up in the Episcopal Church, but came into the CEC in 1995. She began dancing at age 5, and dance has continued to be a part of her life. Her training took her to Chattanooga, Chicago, New York, and finally to Atlanta where she studied at the Ruth Mitchell Dance Studio. After two years of working on her dance career, she moved to Boone, NC to attend Appalachian State University. She graduated from ASU with a major in Commercial Art and a minor in Dance. It was there she met her husband-to-be, Chris Newcomb. In 1988 they were married and settled in his hometown of Asheville. Amanda taught at the Asheville Academy of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and performed with Ann Dunn & Dancers and add dance. Between June of 1994 and December of 1995, a daughter and a son were born to the Newcombs, and the Lord had Amanda take a break from dance. But not for long - in 1998, Amanda choreographed a piece for the Easter service at Church of the Resurrection. Later that year she attended the Teachers’ Forum at Ballet Magnificat’s Summer Program where God really got ahold of her and began paving the way for In His Steps, an outreach ministry of Church of the Resurrection.
