  • Jonathon Murrell

    Worship Leader

    Jonathan Murrell has been the worship leader of His Church since its inception. He has brought the church to an amazing awareness of God’s presence. The music at the 9:30 and 11:00 contemporary services highly resemble listening to K-Love, a Contemporary Christian radio network. The 8:00 service is an old fashioned Southern Gospel service. Jonathan is married to Heidi Simpson Murrell and they have two beautiful daughters; Greta and Miley.
