Praise and Worship Pastor Shannon Wimberley


 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.”  John 4:23

We were created for worship  - we desire to lead others into His presence where one cannot leave unchanged.  We believe that we must first spend time in the secret place, one-on-one with our Savior, before we can ever bring anything of value to the stage.  Our goal is to lead from a place of freedom, leaving room for spontaneous worship and the Spirit to minister as only He can.  We believe music is just one of the many ways we can offer worship to our Father.
