Introducing David Piedt …

This Sunday and Monday, you will have the opportunity to meet David Piedt, the man we believe God intends to be our next worship pastor.  You will have the opportunity to affirm his calling to serve on our pastoral team in all four services.

David grew up in Memphis, accepting Jesus at a young age.  Sensing a call to ministry, he attended Mississippi College (a Baptist college) and furthered his education at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he earned a Master’s degree in church music.  While at Southwestern, he served as an instructor in guitar and was the leader of Southwestern Sound, a traveling worship team.

After seminary, he served as worship pastor of a large church in Beaverton Oregon, coordinating choirs, orchestras, large productions, praise bands, and praise teams.  We have been impressed with the breadth of his musical experience and his comfort level in all kinds of musical styles.

He most recently has served Canoe Creek Christian Church in St. Cloud, Florida, helping that church build its worship ministry almost from scratch.

He is married to Evie, who is from Columbia, SC.  She is a graduate of Columbia International University and taught school in the Columbia area prior to moving to Florida.  They recently adopted their first child, Aria, who is almost three months old.

David plays guitar, piano, saxophone, and a whole lot of other instruments!  We’ve been impressed with his passion, energy, attention to detail, and his desire to be part of a church that is receptive to multiple expressions of worship.

I am praying that you will see what I have seen in David – a person gifted by God who can help Alice Drive help as many people as possible take their next step toward Jesus.
