Our Organ

 

In 2009, Otterbein United Methodist Church made the decision to replace the aging Allen electronic organ that had played a the church for many years. Through a fund raising program, started to generate revenue for not only the organ, but for protection of our stain-glass windows, Otterbein was able to raise the money necessary to install a new Rodgers electronic organ. In November of 2009, the organ was dedicated by world-renowned organist Dan Miller. Since then, the organ has accompanied choirs, soloists, instrumentalists, congregations and everything in between.

 

The organ is used weekly for Sunday worship. Below are the specification of our organ:
