Michael Muniz

Worship Leader


Michael came to Christ at an early age and since then his development into a Godly man has been steady.

He began to develop his musical talents when he was about 16 years old.  First learning to play the electric guitar and then working on his voice. 

Next he started a worship band that led the music program during the kid's church.

Soon his talents were noticed and he was asked to be a part of the church's worship band.

Now God has moved him into the sole role of worship minister and the next phase of his service to Christ is on its way.

 In addition to leading worship, Michael has been trusted with the backup role of preacher.  

Michael is married to Jessica and they have one beautiful daughter (Mia Rae) born in 2022.
