Topher Crosby
Worship Leader
Music Director
Praise Team Leader

     Bonjour à tous! My name is Topher Crosby and I am the music director at Belmont UMC.  I am also the writer of our church blog and the tweeting master on Twitter!  So far it has been an amazing opportunity serving the Lord in this way; Reaching out to the community and the world through social media and praising with our congregation.

     For me, music is the most important aspect of the worship service and it can really bring the people into the presence of the Lord and get the Holy Spirit moving!

     But I guess you want to know a little more about me. I am a twenty something year old student at Wright State University. When I started at university I was a student in Music Education at Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, NJ. But my life completely changed and I moved back to Ohio for my sophomore year. I am a graduate of Wright State University; B.A. in French. I am now in that stage of life where I am trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up! But I know God has an awesome plan for me! Music is still very much a big part of my life and I couldn’t be happier praising the Lord and ministering the way I do.

     Music is talked about all throughout the scripture and I love what the scripture says in Psalm 100. “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!” Psalm 100: 1-2.

     So when you are at church feel free to come and talk to me.  I will gladly tell you more and I am always up for suggestions on songs that the people want to hear.

     If you find yourself wanting to be part of any of the music we have at Belmont, find me and let me know. I love to find passionate people who love, and want to talk about music.

     Praising is for everyone; Not just the man with the microphone.
