Christian works closely with the rest of the staff to bring energy and life to worship services and special events. He has a passion for all types of music which is evidenced through his unique ability to lead a praise band for our 9am service and a traditional choir at the 11 o’clock service. He is always looking for people who have a passion for music regardless of their skill level.
