Area of Ministry Interest/Passion: Worship Leading/ Music and Worship

Tell us about your call to ministry: I feel called to be a musician and a worship leader. God has called me to travel and share my story and my voice with those around me. I believe that God uses His people inside and outside of the church to be vessels and to share His hope, beauty, and creativity with the world. I desire to show others that through music. 

Favorite Thing to Do/See/Eat  in Nashville:I love attending great concerts in the city with my friends. Learning about local bands is a blast!

What are a few of your favorite (or one of your favorite) Trevecca memories? I have had the opportunity to travel with the Trevecca Madrigalian Choir. We perform classical accapella music intended for performance in Cathedral settings. The Madrigalians have the opportunity to sing anually at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville and to many different churches all over the country. This past May, we went to Chicago and Cincinnati on tour. This year we will be headed to Europe for three weeks. The family that I have built with my fellow members is unexplainable and is something that I appreciate everyday.  

How do you think that Trevecca is shaping you for ministry? Trevecca is a community of believers from different backgrounds and different upbringings that come together for one reason. We are here out of our adoration for God and our desire to know more of who He is. Learning more about worship, applying that to my life, and growing in my faith in a community is something that I know I couldn't find anywhere else.
