WORSHIP LEADER - Lauren Lewakowski

Lauren currently works in the Denver professional sports ticketing industry, and began singing worship music for churches only a few short years ago. She has always been passionate about music, but quickly learned God wanted to use her as a tool to lead others in praise and worship. By working outside the walls of traditional ministry, Lauren feels as if she has been given a unique opportunity to help others bump into Jesus who may not be actively seeking Him. This is her first overseas opportunity to minister to others, and she is eager to see how God moves in the hearts of attendees and volunteers alike. Outside of worship music and seeking God’s Kingdom, she has a passion for baking, spending time with family and friends, and traveling whenever possible.
