Draven's story

"From air guitar all over the house to  mirror concerts, I would have never guessed back then that God was going to use my passion for guitar to help me show people who he was now."

When I was 12 years old I went to Church for a vacation bible school for the kids and God grabbed ahold of me and started my journey to spread his love right there.

The first time I came to Shoreline in 2017 I had just moved here and was ready to find a church. I prayed that I would find the right church where I could connect with and love the people there and that’s exactly what Shoreline was the first time I stepped in. Great worship, great teaching, and a really important one was great people; this had to be the place for me!

God was really speaking later on in my time here that it was time to get serious about the future and what I wanted to do. I realized God was calling me to Worship Ministry over everything else.

I knew I had to take steps towards that fast and learn as much as I could. The Summer Internship was a great place to start and I’ve learned so much from it it’s unbelievable. The Residency is the next step I know God is calling me to, I prayed over it so much and got extra confirmation that it was time to take the next step!

The Residency is a 12 month Intensive On the Job Training program where I will be working alongside Shoreline staff full-time preparing me to be the best leader I can be and learning everything involved in Vocational ministry. The perfect program for what God has called me to do for his kingdom. 

I greatly appreciate your Generosity and Support. Thank you so much for investing in the expansion of Gods kingdom
