Worship Leader

shawn lopezWhat gets Shawn Lopez excited about waking up every Sunday morning and looking forward to living out the day? The opportunity to come to Parkview Christian Church and lead our congregation in a time of “authentic” worship. “Authentic” meaning having a real encounter with the Living God. Bringing our “whole” heart to the table and not holding anything back in our expression of our worship. The beauty of Sunday morning worship is that the spotlight is not on us and God is the central character in the drama of worship. Shawn’s foundational scripture is centered around Romans Chapter 12 where the Apostle Paul urges his fellow brothers in Christ to “offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God –this is your spiritual act of worship”. Shawn’s education & experience over many years as a Worship Director & Leader still brings him back to the feet of the cross. Shawn is married with one son and has traded San Diego’s ocean view for Idaho’s Mountain View and feels right at home with the pace and life Idaho has to offer. Shawn may be reached through slopez@pccmeridian.org, or by his cell, 818-917-4779.
