Patrick McHugh is a gifted minister, a talented musician and amazing sound engineer.  He is passionate about sharing the love of Christ by equipping the local church with the tools to grow.  A lifelong Vermont resident, he and Alison have been making music together since the 7th grade. By day, Pat lends his work ethic and servant heart  to a local contracting company, in addition to coaching young athletes.  In 2013, Pat founded the Vermont Christian Conference Series which has grown to become Dwelling Ministries, an organization set up to bring the best in music and technology training to the body of Christ in New England.


Alison McHugh is the oldest child in the Dudash family, born and raised in the Mad River Valley in Central Vermont.  She grew up in a tight knit, mission driven, spirit-filled church and has been a worship leader since she was 13 years old.  Alison has a background in early childhood education and food service management and currently facilitates research and alumni programming for a wilderness therapy program.  On evenings and weekends you can find her writing songs, mentoring songwriters, encouraging worship leaders and traveling around the Green Mountain State leading worship at various events.
