Meet our full-time Worship Director.
We sense this is the time for all of us, this entire body, to take a step of faith to bring Brett Muschott, our Worship Director, on staff full time.
As of today, April 8th, that decision has been made. We're excited to formally introduce you to our formerly part-time, new full-time Worship Director, Brett Muschott.
Brett has been our part-time Worship Director for over a year now. We sat down with him and asked a few questions you've been dying to know answers to:
LCC Update: Tell us a little about growing up.
I was born in Dearborn, MI in September of 1993, but have lived in the Columbus area since the summer of 2000. I grew up in a household where God, family and friends were valued above everything else. I have always had a great relationship with my parents which I am extremely grateful for. Being in a christian school from 1st grade till I graduated high school, along with attending Cedarville University for 4 years has greatly impacted who I am, and what I believe.
LCC Update: What has been your path leading up to being a worship director?
My interest in music and theatre all throughout middle school and high school sparked an interest in the worship scene, specifically in music. Having the privilege of leading worship at my high school, youth group, and church my Senior year helped me grow and mature in the scriptures at a very important time in my life. Travelling with HeartSong, a group of worship teams from Cedarville, for four years has also impacted me tremendously in my view of worship.
LCC Update: Was there an "Aha!" moment when you realized what you wanted to do?
Even though I am currently employed by LCC as the Worship Director, I recently completed my degree in Early-Childhood Education. I started as a worship major at Cedarville because it felt like the most logical thing for me to do. As I progressed through the first year in my major, I strongly felt called into teaching. I knew that no matter what my vocation was, God would faithfully provide a church that I could impact with my musical abilities and servant's heart.
LCC Update: What is a unique hobby you have that few people might know?
Since I'm already hired, I guess it is safe to say that I am a nerd and have a passion for video games. I traveled to many camps in my time spent on HeartSong, and met a wide variety of high school and middle school students. In my times hanging out with them, I found it amazing how God used my knowledge and passion of video games to connect with many students who had trouble connecting with anyone else. I can think of many friendships and salvation conversations that would not have been possible if I had not been able to connect with the student(s) through a common interest in video games.
LCC Update: What's your favorite part of worship?
If I had to narrow it down to one part, I would have to say the moments when I feel the Spirit moving through the whole church body. Not only in myself, but in the other members of the band, the tech team, and the entire congregation. As opposed to popular opinion, God doesn't need people like me to proclaim His glory. It is only through the work of the Holy Spirit that God can truly touch our hearts, and I am thankful for those times when that is most evident while we worship Him through song.
LCC Update: You're trapped on a desert island and can only take one possession with you. What would it be?
Probably my fan. I can't sleep without it.
LCC Update: What's your most embarrassing moment?
When I was five, I fell into a fountain at the mall. Even my mom laughed at me. Since then, I have an irrational fear of mall fountains and feel slightly nauseous at the sight of running water.
LCC Update: Favorite place to eat?
Any place that serves fresh hibachi. I. Love. Hibachi. Chicken.
