Speaker: Thayer Wallace.
Thayer is the Senior Pastor at Central Church of Christ in Portsmouth, OH where he lives with his wife, Alyssa and two children, Everleigh (4) and Toren (2). Before making the switch to preaching, Thayer served as a student and worship pastor for almost a decade. While no longer in full time student ministry, Thayer remains wholly committed to seeing the church reach the next generation of Christ-followers. When not writing a sermon or thinking through strategy, Thayer loves to read, watch movies, and play video games…really engage in anything that has an interesting story.
Worship: Render the Hearts
Isaiah6:10 says to “Render the hearts of this people insensitive, their ears dull, and their eyes dim, otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and return and be healed.” RtH is moving continuously expanding their fan base and making a mark on the Christian music industry. Their driving Pop Rock sound is enhanced by splashes of melodic guitar/keyboard lines, smooth vocal harmonies, and intricate drum rhythms.
RtH has been described by fans and concert goers as having a “groovy sound” and “pocket”! After releasing a self-titled EP in April 2013, RtH spent some time touring and writing before releasing a Christmas EP in November of 2015. September 1, 2016 marked the international release of their 1st full-length album entitled “Run to Love”. On February 14, 2018 the band released “Love is..” along with a campaign to encourage Christ-followers to push their own judgements and feelings aside and simply love people the way Jesus did and does.
