Meet the Worship Team

Worship Team

The worship team consists of seven members with hearts devoted to honoring God. Our desire is to worship God as a lifestyle and not just from the stage. We seek to lead students in a creative expression of worship through music. We do not desire to entertain but to play music that will affect lives. We pray to be a vessel that the Lord uses to speak to students.

Why YQ? I believe that middle school and high school students are full of potential. I believe that God wants them to follow Him, and He wants to use them to do things that only they are capable of doing. YouthQuest is a way to share the Gospel of Jesus with these students, and encourage them to follow Jesus with all of their heart, soul mind and strength.

Why YQ? My journey on YouthQuest has so far been one that I will never forget. God has graciously opened the door to me to be able to do two things that I am passionate about all at once, worship, and discipleship. Not only is worshipping our Savior and working with youth a blast, it is also an honor, and an opportunity that has grown me in my walk with God as we are helping grow others. I'm grateful for the YouthQuest ministry!

Why YQ? The youth of our nation are at a very influential point in their lives. I believe God placed me on Youth Quest so that I may be a positive role-model for this generation. A lot of young people are living destructive lifestyle because of the negativity in this world. Youth Quest may be the only reveler of God's light in their lives.

Why YQ? I love youth and youth ministry. I love worshiping God and leading students in worship.  Being a part of a team of people with the same passion for youth and youth ministry is indescribable. YouthQuest is the perfect opportunity to serve and to continue to be obedient to God's calling on my life.  I hope to see students come to know Christ and to gain a deeper knowledge of him through this ministry and cannot wait to see what God has in store for this year!
