Worship Leaders

"‘True worship' comes from a deep-rooted well that is planted within our hearts and sanctified through the written Word of God. Worship is a powerful outlet used as a weapon of warfare to defeat the enemy's tactics and release healing into the Body of Christ. As faithful servants, our pursuit of worship should be selflessly and solely dedicated to Him for He can only be found in the beautiful surrender of one's self to Jesus. When worship becomes 'something you are' instead of 'something you do,' God can use you to shift the atmosphere and open up the Heavens."

"Worship is definitely an action word. It's the act of outwardly displaying the gratitude and affection that we feel on the inside. It's the act of honoring the God who created us, loves us unconditionally, and chose us for eternity. It's more than just singing a song or saying scripted words aloud, it's a way to communicate heart-to-heart with Him. It brings us to a place where we can truly feel connected with Him on a deeper level. It's a way to give back to the One who has given us literally everything."
