Isaiah has been playing music since he was 14. He is an accomplished guitarist, sings, and also composes. He is currently the worship leader at Christ Church of the Valley, and has been with our church almost since its beginning, in 2007. Isaiah came to see his need for Jesus after having come to the awareness that without him, “life had nothing to offer”. His favorite scripture is Psalm 91.
