Clay Hecocks Bio
Clay Hecocks has enjoyed the unique experience and call of leading worship at Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale. When he arrived, he found a small congregation, accustomed to guitar, drums and limited vocals. Nine years later, he has risen to the challenge of maintaining intimate worship for more than 12,000 believers at seven different services with five separate worship teams and a choir.
Clays musical career began as a classical pianist. However, it was not long before he abandoned his roots to follow his love for a contemporary style of music. This made him a natural for fulfilling Gods call of leading worship, after giving his life to the Lord at the age of 23.
Another fruit of Clays ministry has been in the area of writing, arranging and producing contemporary Christian music. He has produced several worship projects including the Higher Praise series and several of his songs have been recorded on various labels including Hosanna! Integrity and Maranatha! Music.
Clay has the rare and exceptional skill of blending intricate and difficult musical components to obtain a simple, yet profound style of worship that captures the beauty and heart of the Lord. It is the basis for the depth of worship enjoyed by the body of believers who are blessed through the God-given gifts and talents of Clay Hecocks ministry of music.
