Church on the Cape is considered a small church with a big church music program. Music is a significant part of our worship, our events, our celebrations, and our faith. From the musical and vocal talent within our own faith family to the national and international artists we host, our music ministry is a powerful part of our lives.
Janice Stover

Janice Stover grew up in Southern California, the daughter of Robert (baritone) and Dorothy (soprano) Dow. Her parents met while singing in a quartet on WMBI at Moody Bible Institute, and after Wheaton College and Fuller Seminary, they entered the ministry, had four children, taught them how to sing, and inspired Janice to pursue playing the pipe organ. 


She attended Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL and Gordon College in Wenham, MA, graduating with a BMus degree in organ performance.

Janice has had a varied career in playing the piano and organ, singing, acting, choral directing and church music administrating in California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. 


Her passion is church music, and she is honored to be called to serve God and His people at The Church on the Cape.
