Worship Leader

Sara Sheets

Sara was born and raised in California and moved to Montana in 2020. Sara was a vocalist in her church youth band from Jr. High, up to High School. Once graduated, she joined the worship team at her church and continued to learn how to lead. Sara was a vocal jazz major in college. Her love of song and dance continue. At any given moment, she will bust out an old 90's dance move. She's never met a dog she doesn't love, loves to create and loves the beauty of Montana that now surrounds her. Through the ups and downs of life, worship remains the foundation. Her motto comes from an Austin French song. "Lord, all I want, is what You want for me. I'm wide open. Here I am, send me where You want me to go. I surrender all to you, my heart and my soul."
