Brittany Hastings

Worship Leader

I was raised in Hammond and have a heart for serving the area through worship. At a young age, I felt the calling of the Lord to music. I started a music career in 2003. We had the privilege of meeting a lot of people and toured many places, but God was calling us to sing for Him in the local church. I now enjoy serving with my husband and teaching my son, Brooks, to follow God’s call on your life.
