Bring Your Burdens
We grew up together in our home church, FBC Highlands. Throughout middle school, a few of us played together in the student ministry band. We graduated high school and pursued our educational goals until we were asked to lead worship together for our home church's DNOW in early 2017. Playing together for this event planted the seed for what would become BYB. After much prayer & consideration, we felt God's calling to worship ministry.
