Logan Zahora, Worship Leader

Logan has been actively involved in worship through music for the majority of his life. He became connected with Pastor Stef through Camp YoliJwa. In 2018 he was asked to fill the spot of a missing instrumentalist and ended up staying. In 2020, Logan took an intermission to study abroad which allowed him to experience a wider range of worship. During that time he established a minor in Music and Worship at Messiah University, and shortly after returning was officially offered the position of Worship Leader. It has been a joy for the congregation to see him grow during this time and he is excited for what the Lord has in store for the worship of His church.
