    Sarah is not only a talented musician, singer, and songwriter who loves Jesus, she wants to lead others to encounter Him through worship. Sarah leads our band and production team (audio, video, lighting) to create a meaningful and renewing time of worship that turns our hearts and minds towards Christ and the message from God's word. Originally from Oklahoma, Sarah spent her childhood immersed in music, taking music lessons, tagging along to concerts, performing, and ultimately pursuing degrees in music. Though accepting Christ as a child, it was while in college that Sarah fell passionately in love with Jesus and with contemporary worship music. Since then, she has played, sung, and led people in worship at churches, retreats and other places. Sarah also works as a Music Therapist where she uses music as a tool to help children with developmental disabilities build skills and gain independence. Whether it’s helping kids find God’s image within them or pointing others to worship the One who puts that image there, she has a great passion for music with purpose.
