Clare Sevier Ray | Director of Music
Clare made a decision to follow Christ when she was a young child. She went to college to study music while playing tennis on scholarship. It was not until after she finished playing tennis that she wondered what God had for her to pursue in music. Directly after graduation, she joined the Continental Singers and traveled the U.S., Canada, and Europe spreading the love of Jesus through music. After one year of singing, she truly felt God called her into music ministry. She moved to Fort Worth, TX and attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and studied voice performance.
