Lisa and her husband Gene have been at The Cross since the inception in early 2012. She had previously spent many years in music ministry at Spanish River Church, as well as bringing that musical ministry to various community outreaches. At The Cross, She started as part of the worship team on Saturdays, and has been leading the Saturday night team for the past few years. Gene joins them on acoustic guitar each week.  Lisa’s gift and passion for worship is displayed by song choices of contemporary Christian music, contemporary hymns, as well as several original songs written by her. Her goal through worship is to stir every heart, hoping that they as a team will help draw God’s people closer to His heart. Lisa often says that leading worship  “is a privilege that I will never take lightly.” In addition to Saturday nights, you can frequently see Lisa on the Sunday morning worship team as well.
