As one of the up and coming worship leaders today, Chris Clayton
has a true desire and passion for people to live their lives each moment in wonder of the One who gives real life."My prayer is that people will be reminded that we serve and worship a holy God who is more than we can ever fathom.Sometimes I feel that we often 'tip our hat' to God and go about our week without ever encountering Him and recognizing Him for the Holy One that He
says.Chris serves as a worship leader traveling the United States leading worship in various youth, college and young adult capacities.
Since 2000, Chris
has traveled on a full time basis with a heartbeat to lead authentic worship."For me, it isn't about going out and pounding a Bible over a person's head, but instead striving to reflect God in everything I do.Worship is more about a lifestyle than any song written or any service on a Sunday morning."Chris first began leading in the local church in his youth group and later attended Dallas Baptist University where he spent a good bit of his four years leading worship at both campus-wide Bible studies, as well as maintaining a steady travel schedule leading in various outside events.
Since the beginning, God has blessed Chris
with the opportunity to be a part of many events, including Disciple-NOW's, retreats, camps, rallies and revivals - leading hundreds of students and adults in worship.
Chris' latest CD, "Breathing Air Again", the follow up to "In Wonder", takes the listener on a musical and lyrical journey that all point to the center of the Christian faith - knowing Him and making Him known.Recorded by Chris
and his band (Stephen Boutwell, Ryan Cecil, Kara Clayton & Jon Webb), each song offers the listener an opportunity to dive deep into authentic worship.
