Riza Singal - Worship Director

A third generation Seventh-day Adventist, Riza Singal currently holds the position as our Worship Director. She’s been mentored by Seth & Nirva Ready and Chris August, in which she’s had the opportunity to record with Chris in Tennessee. God gave Riza a strong passion for leading worship along with the gift and privilege of song writing in the local church. She’s also involved with Elevation Church’s Worship team of the Triad, and is being poured into by other worship leaders who fiercely love the Lord. Riza continues to impact and shift the worship culture of our church. Her hope is that God is glorified through what she does, and that people would continuously learn to pursue Jesus and worship Him freely.
