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? YouthQuest is a unique opportunity to team up with a group of genuine, passionate disciples of Jesus who share a common desire to lift up Jesus with their lives. I, like the rest of team, want to share the Gospel with and minister to students that they may know, love and glorify Him.

Why YQ? Psalm 96:3 "Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the peoples!" The transformation that comes from a relationship with Christ is not something to be kept on the down low about. Getting the opportunity to share the hope that Jesus offers to the leaders of the next generation is an exciting gift to say the least. Not only do I get to share the Gospel with the areas we visit, but I get to do it with some hardy belly laughs, a little too much junk food, and not to mention: some good ole' music playin' with some of the funniest, Jesus-loving people I know!

Why YQ? I desire to serve the Lord with the talents He's given me in any way that I can. Youthquest has given me an amazing opportunity to share God's love with students from all walks of life. YQ has also given me a chance to grow in my faith alongside others who also desire to see His name lifted high!

Why YQ?  I know that no matter what degree I graduate with, I'll be a full time youth pastor for a church. I love student ministry and I know it's what I'm called to do. That being said, YouthQuest has been one of the BIGGEST and most humbling blessing in my life. The fact that I get to do what I want to do with my life for school is awesome.

Why YQ? When I found out about YouthQuest's Mission and purpose my freshman year I was amazed by the ministry. I tried out and chose YouthQuest because I wanted to worship God through music and serve His church with fellow students. It is truly a blessing and humbling gift that God has given to me and my teammates!

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!
