What is a worship pastor?

Our services are invitations for the Holy Spirit to move us to worship the Father and Jesus, His Son. Our music stimulates participation, spiritual growth, and authentic community. Its chief hallmark is joy. We encourage congregational singing, flexibility, and generous openness. All this, with our mistakes, makes us feel so very much at home in this our Father’s house. Out of our brokenness comes beauty.

Heidi will be leading us along that path with great joy!
