We are so excited to announce that we’ve hired David Hawkins to be our new Worship Pastor at Vineyard Maryville! He begins, officially, on April 20th. Please be praying for David and his family, as they are planning a cross-country move at a VERY odd time!
David grew up mostly in the Midwest, which is where he met his wife, Ginger. They moved to the Phoenix area several years ago. They have 3 children–Anders, Rendy, and Sullivan.
Hiring David has been a collaborative effort of our Ecclesiastical board, Financial Board, our Senior Leadership Team, and an Advisory Team comprised of worship team members. We also received input from a panel of interviewers, and LOTS of nice folks who loved it when David came to lead worship! There has been loads of enthusiasm around hiring David from all parties, and we’re so excited to have him join us in JOINING GOD IN THE RENEWAL OF ALL THINGS!
Thanks so much to all who helped in this process! And special thanks to Brooks Coker who has led us so well during transition (transition is hard!), and who has gone WAY above and beyond the call of duty in service to our church. Thank you, Brooks Coker! We love you!
