Worship Leader For The Pearl Event III
Michaela grew up in a family that placed a high value on worship. Though formally trained on the piano, she absorbed much by osmosis as she grew up surrounded by influential worship leaders and songwriters. In 2008, she enrolled in the school of ministry at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and after a year leading worship under the guidance of Brian and Jenn Johnson, Michaela returned home to begin serving as one of the worship leaders for her local church in TN. She is a passionate and anointed worship leader having spent years in the secret place - alone with God and the piano. She has recently released her first album, The Morning Sun. Available on Itunes here.
I will be sharing and encouraging you all too, but most importantly, these incredible women will be pouring out their hearts to be used by the Father, to bless you above all you can imagine!
We cannot wait to see you all on May 17! I posted some hotel options yesterday for those of you who have asked!
