Denver grew up with an insatiable love of music. His childhood is intertwined with memories of his mother practicing piano for Sunday morning and his father booming anything from Motown to Steely Dan.

He continues to fall in love with what music is and what it can accomplish in the heart of a believer.

Amber Brown

Amber loves the simple things in life; Chick-fil-A nuggets, the $1 section at Target, and a good Disney movie. She and her husband, Wade, are both Texas Tech grads that have a passion for travel, having visited over 30 different countries. Amber loves crochet, calligraphy, and cooking, but is not so fond of early mornings, horror movies, or washing dishes. The Browns, along with their 1-year-old daughter, Emmy, love meeting new people, and are always looking for some friends to have game nights with!
