David Leach

Closer Walk Worship Band

As a songwriter and worship leader, David’s deepest desire is for people to be overwhelmed by God’s goodness and, in turn, offer their lives to Him in praise. David’s own journey of worship became the path where he realized God’s unconditional love, boundless grace, and unending joy. A significant encounter with the Lord in his senior year of college resulted in David’s decision to pursue God’s presence as his life’s greatest passion. In 2010 David married his wife Johannah, founder and director of Dance Revelation. Together, they carry a huge passion for the creative arts community, as they help to oversee a variety of musicians, songwriters, and worshippers at Life Center. They are also the parents of a beautiful baby girl named Harper.


Youth Leaders Discussion Session - We recognize the huge responsibility it is to bring a group of young people to an outdoor, overnight event - plus the nurturing and guidance you provide your kids all year long.  Join us Friday at 3:30 pm for a one-hour session designed by youth leaders for youth leaders.

Icebreakers, Games and Activities – While the youth leaders are having their discussion session, the kids are getting together for an awesome time of fellowship and FUN.  Meet someone NEW, play some games, laugh out loud and make some friends.  Join us for this hugely popular activity, Friday at 3:30 pm.

Ocean Baptisms -  Each year we are amazed by the number of people who participate in this beautiful ceremony.  Baptisms are held Friday after the morning program. A baptism certificate is provided to each participant by the officiating pastor.
