Worship Music

Leading worship for the First Friday Mass during the 2019 CALL Conference at The Grammy Museum.

Aside from my own songwriting and performing, I find tremendous joy in leading praise and worship in churches and religious settings. I've been a regular cantor and music director for a weekly Sunday liturgy since 2015, have served as a worship leader for over 30 retreats, and I have been singing praise and worship music as a minister since 2008.

Most recently I was blessed to lead worship with my band at the Grammy Museum for the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders (CALL) Conference in September 2019.

Worship Leading Experience 

  • weekly music directing and cantoring for Sunday liturgy 
  • cantoring and leading worship for retreats, conferences, festivals, and gatherings
  • XLTs & Eucharistic Adoration 

My Catholic Christian faith deeply influences my music, my songwriting, singing, along with all other aspects of my life. Experiences of God are woven in my lyrics. When I sing, whether it be worship music or secular music or anything in between, singing is prayer for me.  

    Uke-aristic Adoration

    Leading worship with ukulele during Holy Hours of Eucharistic Adoration is one of my favorite ways to pray. I've organized and hosted a number of Uke-aristic Adoration events. If you'd like to host an evening of Uke-aristic Adoration at your parish, I'd love to help lead your community in worship.

    If you would like me to lead worship music or cantor for your event, please contact me at: jgerhardtmusic@gmail.com.
