Bob Kraft, Youth For Christ Development Director

“Michele Payton has a wonderful heart for Jesus!  She has an extreme servant attitude with her music that is very refreshing in today’s world of Christian music.  She is willing to work with a ministry to help them in their program and has little or no concern for her own promotion or notoriety.  She truly wants to glorify God through her work and not herself.  May God bless her for that attitude!”

Bud Hamilton, (Previous) Campus Pastor, Taylor University
