Will has been the Music director at Olivet since June 2013.
Will's passion for music started at an early age. He and his sister grew up singing together around the house or on road trips. As they grew older, they had the opportunity to sing with different Gospel groups.
His prayer is to serve as a music director to the best of his ability, allow God to use him, and to lead people into a level of worship deeply connected with God.
Isaac grew up going to Olivet and went to a Christian School which greatly grounded him in his faith. At nine years old Isaac gave his life to Christ after being moved in an altar call at his school during worship. From that moment of worship Isaac devoted his time to learning music so that he could use music to affect others for Christ as it did him.
He has actively served the youth at Olivet in many different capacities since 2007. Olivet Youth has had a very positive impact on Isaac over the years and he hopes to continue to impact people as Youth Director through music and teaching.
