Even after over 19 years of experience in catechism and youth ministry Mike continuously searches for new ways youth can explore their relationship with God. His interest in sharing the faith began in high school as one of the youngest catechists on Yokosuka Naval Base Japan. In that first class of 5th grade students he found joy is sharing and helping others discover the love of God.
Unlike many others charged with teaching and passing on the faith Mike has never found it difficult to ask the tough questions like; "What's for dinner?", "How did you get that in there?", and the most important "What's that smell?!?". His light approach to the subject of faith helps youth and others searching for its meaning to feel comfortable asking questions they may have previously been embarrassed to bring up. There are only two dumb questions; the one that's never asked and the one that's already been answered.
For the past 4 years he has been the Youth Minister at Holy Spirit Catholic Church and feels blessed to call this parish and Fairfield home.
JT Bevy is formed and fronted by Jake Thomas, a singer, songwriter and producer who has fronted and played in active bands for over a 15 year time period. He is bringing all the years of experience and music diversity into JT Bevy for great new music and an amazing live show experience!
Jake's extensive multi-genre music back ground gives him an "anything goes" pop/rock music style that can capture a large audience with different music tastes. The music is centered on alternative rock with shades of electronic, rap, classic and pop country rock. You could say it's a mix of Blink 182, Linkin Park meets Incubus, Neon Trees and Fall Out Boy with a touch of Foo Fighters meets Keith Urban.
JT Bevy is based in San Antonio where Jake currently lives. Jake came from the Salt Lake City area, where he played in several bands. Two of his well-known bands were Quite Frankly and London Bridge.
Jake recorded, produced and played all the instruments on the debut JT Bevy EP, entitled "Madness". A few featured artists and musicians joined on a couple tracks giving the EP some dynamic style and genre versatility.
JT Bevy features amazing musicians with the live shows with impressive resumes of their own! Every show involves a great show, crowd particiapation and a BEVY of great music!!
A classically trained musician, Elizabeth Anne Mall [EAM] grew up in Kansas and learned to play piano at 12-years old. "Often times, I was alone growing up in the country, so I would spend hours writing songs and playing the piano."
Drawing from pop, classical, and electronic influences, EAM creates a unique musical experience. Her songs range from cutting-edge indie-pop to thoughtful piano ballads. Songs like "Wounds" and "Masterpiece" showcase the intimacy of her voice set against a piano and cello, while songs like "Best Friend" and "Spin the World" display her extensive pop sensibilities.
The title of her latest album "Belle Laide" is taken from a French term used to describe unconventional beauty. "To me, it fits so well because this album was born from both beautiful and difficult personal experiences."
Born March 1st, 1994, Larz Delago has been writing songs since the age of 12 on both the guitar and piano.
In 2014, Larz tied for 3rd place in the Vacaville Singer/Songwriter competition. Feeling doubts of his music career, he wrote the song "The Dream" and went back the next year to the Singer/Songwriter contest to win first place.
During the fall semester of 2015, Larz dropped out of college to work as a private security guard in order to pay for studio sessions. It took 6 months of working tirelessly along with $500 raised by friends, family, and supporters for Larz to be able to pay for the studio sessions and mastering process.
Larz released his first album "Starts With an L" in May of 2016
