TRICIA ZODY

Vision Statement:
I wish to be a vessel, used in whatever way God sees fit, to proclaim freedom to the captive, healing to the broken, and salvation to the lost. Using music and the voice God has given me, it is my mission and calling when leading worship to create an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit is welcome, and where the people are pointed towards a loving, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.  I am called to lead boldly by example by modeling worship through music, as well as modeling worship in my daily living.
