  • jesse miller- worship director

    Jesse grew up in Frostburg Maryland, in a little log cabin on top of Big Savage Mountain with his mother, father, one sister and two brothers. He gained a love of music at a young age listening to his dad play the guitar on the front porch. He would mess around on his fathers Stratocaster. He developed his gifts by playing in a couple of bands and playing at Pleasant Ridge Church Camp in Pennsylvania. That is where He got saved and dedicated his life to his Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Jesse moved to the Shenandoah Valley in 2003 to help out with the youth program at Spring Creek Church of the Nazarene where he also met his beautiful wife Amanda. They have a precious little girl named Brielle and handsome little man named Wyatt.
