Our Team

Josh Blount | Worship ministry

I love making music for God. In high school, I went on a mission trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There I experienced worship and praise that entirely altered my perspective on music, and started me on my calling. Following that experience, I taught myself how to play a few instruments and began to serve on local worship teams. I started giving lessons, and through teaching I found my passion in collaborating with others to write, record and create music, After marrying my beautiful wife Seraphim, we moved to Santa Cruz together in 2021. I’m extremely grateful that God’s brought us here and excited that he’s put me in a position here at Christian Life Center where I get to use that passion through my calling: bringing God glory and praise through music.
