WREN - WORSHIP LEADER
Wren’s musical training began in her hometown of St Petersburg, FL. Not only did she learn to play the flute in junior high and high school bands, but she also began private flute lessons with a renowned flute teacher and continued to do so for six years. After high school, she continued to play in different community churches and also play with a group called The Second Time Arounders. After moving to the Space Coast, Wren and her family joined a Methodist church and the choir; she was a part of this church for more than 20 years. During that time she learned even more from the talented musicians and directors that made music there and eventually and humbly accepted the position of Choir Director.
Wren considers herself a joyful musician and singer. Praising God with every song. Her intentions are to spread the Word with music and rejoicing in the love of Jesus. The utmost goal in so doing is to please the Lord. She is known for her devotion to creating a spiritual service in connection with Pastor Joel’s enthusiastic sermons and encouraging the congregation to show up full of the Holy Spirit. She considers herself a servant of God and likes to say that God used her talents in ways she never expected and she is so grateful she was called.
