Kiersten Rose

Director of Modern Worship

Born and raised in western St. Charles County, I grew up surrounded by the wonderful sound of music, listening to my dad play drums with various bands in and around St. Louis. Musical seeds were planted when I began piano lessons at the age of six, and by the time I was ten I knew I wanted to be a professional musician. Over the years I’ve been blessed to have performed in various venues, have written and produced four independent albums in the Contemporary Christian and Jazz genres, and hold Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Jazz Studies from Webster University.

I have led worship in various churches, conferences, and gatherings around the Midwest and pull from my experience in many Christian denominations to create a culture of worship that speaks to seasoned and new believers, young and old. My desire is to press into the reason of why and how we worship and find creative new ways to express our devotion to God. Beyond what I “do,” I love God and want my life to be worshipful, anyway and anywhere.

My husband, Bryan, and I currently reside in Ellisville with our blended family of five “kids.” Along with music, I love cooking, vegetable gardening, reading, hiking, and rehabbing our 1950’s ranch home.
