Worship Arts Director Seeking Church


published 4/3/2019

My name is Brando and I am currently the worship arts director for a church in the St. Louis area. I am 32 years old. I am married to my beautiful wife Lulu, and the father of two beautiful little boys, Cadence 6 and Elvis 6 months old. We are looking at moving to the Twin Cities area as we have heard incredible things about what God is doing there.
 
We are currently in the process of leaving our church over issues regarding human sexuality. We are on a short timeline of around 2 months so that our current church can find a qualified applicant and so that we can find a new church home. I am seeking gainful employment at a church that is welcoming to all people regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, or gender. My wife and I feel strongly that for us to be faithful we need to be worshiping somewhere that is affirming.

I am attaching my resume along with a video of myself leading worship. I am passionate about worship and leading and guiding folks in the praise of our Savior. I currently handle several other duties along with worship leading including graphic design, video, website, among others at our church. I am energized by developing and leading musicians to make a joyful and excellent noise. I am a big dude with a beard and tattoos but I will 100% cry at the right lyric or Disney film. If I sound like something that you are looking for please hit me up!
