One of the most important ingredients to the weekend services at Grace Church is it's backstage team. These are people who "lead worship" from an entirely different perspective. Serving in a way that people don't see or observe first hand, but notice and feel the effects when things aren't going right behind the scenes.
I've known Kendra Bott for over ten years. In fact, I had the privelege of singing in her wedding back in the early 2000's. She's always been a faithful servant at Grace in some capacity over the years. During the past few years I've had the privelege of serving alongside Kendra on the Weekend Service Team as she volunteers on the stage crew helping make all the elements during a service flow seamlessly. She helps keep time during the messages and music meeting me offstage to help identify places that need to be shored up. She will also track down band members making sure we are all ready to roll when it's time to step onstage. In addition to Kendra's desire to serve the Lord at Grace, I always love talking Star Wars with her. (Yep...I just outed her as a fellow Star Wars fan). It's people with hearts like Kendra that truly make serving the Lord at Grace an honor and privilege every week.
Thanks Kendra for being a faithful member of the Grace WST!!! If you all see Kendra this week, tell her she's SUPER COOL!!!
