Register Now

Brandon has been leading worship for over 15 years, traveling to locations all around the world spreading the Gospel, and encouraging the church through song. Growing up, he was introverted, and did not like the attention that came when people realized his musical talents, so he hid them for many years… It wasn’t until he was 15 that the Lord was able to finally get a hold of his heart and reveal to him that his talents and abilities were not to hide in a closet, nor to make a name for himself, but to point others to Jesus and His kingdom.

Kyle and Nicola

Kyle Gray

July 11 - July 17, 2021

Register Now

I was raised in a pastors home so I heard the Gospel from a very young age. I remember being in the car with my dad and asking him how could I have Jesus in my heart like my older brother. That day he walked me back through the beautiful truth of how Christ died in my place to pay for my sins. And that He rose again to prove He had defeated death and the grave. HE told me that by grace through faith I could have a personal relationship with Christ.
