Worship Director

Contact Faith

Faith is a gifted graphic designer, artist, musician and serves as the Worship Director here at Reliance. Born into a ministry family, Faith grew up as a Third Culture Kid in California, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates, gleaning from the “ins and outs” of ministry in different cultural and denominational contexts. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Theology and is a perpetual student of God’s presence and leading in the life of His Church.

Faith and her husband Thales have a heart for the global Church, spiritual formation/discipleship, and Christic artists and their prophetic voice in the world. They spend their days making music and raising their son Thomas, all while loving Jesus, people, and single-origin coffee.

As Reliance Church has become home, she hopes that this community further embodies the Gospel of Jesus by the power of the Spirit and to the glory of God alone.

What is your role at Reliance Church?
Worship Director

Describe your job in five words?
Visual storytelling to embodied presence

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
My parents let me dream big: a scientist, journalist/writer, lawyer, doctor, singer, actor, and teacher.

Coffee, Tea, or Soda?
Coffee always—a Chemex or a cortado. Yorkshire Gold Tea when I’m out of coffee.

Go-to worship song?
My go-to song is a revolving door. At the moment, because I’m always singing them to my son, it’s “I Belong to Jesus (Dylan’s Song)” by Brooke Ligertwood, “Canvas and Clay” by Pat Barrett, and the hymn “He Will Hold Me Fast.”

Who has had the most influence in your spiritual life?
My parents, Thales, Krista Rull, and Haley Montgomery Dall.

Food you can’t live without?
Rice—the foundation of every great dish.

Which Bible character would you most likely to be best friends with?
I would roll deep with David because of all the honest psalms; Thomas because doubt is a friend of faith; and Priscilla because we love a theologically-versed sister.

Favorite Quote of all time?
“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.” — Augustine, Confessions

What is your hope for Reliance Church?
May we daily be transformed by the Gospel, letting the life of Christ be lived through us by the power of the Spirit and to the glory of God. May we sing more, prioritize Presence, and be known by our love for one another and our city.
