Meet the instructor


Brad LaWarre

Brad has been blessed to serve as a live audio engineer for over 18 years in several churches and at various event venues. His love of music stems from 10 years of singing in music ensemble, vocal jazz and concert choir during his school years. He attributes his technical proficiency to being a third-generation mechanical engineer who works for a NASA contractor at Kennedy Space Center. 

When Brad made himself available to serve at church, he had no idea God would utilize these talents together for one purpose. Shortly after saying “yes” to God, he was blessed with a wonderful wife of 17 years, Sharon, who serves as a lighting technician. Now, saying “yes” to God as an instructor, Brad hopes to pass-on the worship experience behind the mixing board and the blessings that come from serving Him.
