Bethany Ballard Worship Director
I work alongside Pastor Brad Thayer to provide leadership, direction and vision in the music ministry at Ballard. Music in ministry has always been a passion of mine. I’ve been fortunate to have gained experience leading praise for youth group, school assemblies and Bible studies, starting when I was in high-school. Playing with the band was such an obvious way for me to get involved when I started attending Bethany a few years ago.
I’ve developed a desire to apply the abilities that God has nurtured in me in a larger way and this opportunity just seemed like a very clear indication that He was opening the door to do just that.
For the past 8 years I’ve been playing guitar in a band with my best friends that I grew up with. It's called Ivan & Alyosha.
