As one of the up and coming worship leaders today, Chris Clayton has a true desire and passion for people to live their lives each moment in wonder of the One who gives real life. “My prayer is that people will be reminded that we serve and worship a holy God who is more than we can ever fathom. Sometimes I feel that we often ‘tip our hat’ to God and go about our week without ever encountering Him and recognizing Him for the Holy One that He is.”
Chris serves as a worship leader traveling the United States leading worship in various youth, college and young adult capacities. Since 2000, Chris has traveled on a full-time basis with a heartbeat to lead authentic worship. “For me, it isn’t about going out and pounding a Bible over a person’s head, but instead striving to reflect God in everything I do. Worship is more about a lifestyle than any song written or any service on a Sunday morning.”
Chris first began leading in the local church in his youth group and later attended Dallas Baptist University where he spent a good bit of his four years leading worship at both campus-wide Bible studies, as well as maintaining a steady travel schedule leading in various outside events. Since the beginning, God has blessed Chris with the opportunity to be a part of many events, including Disciple Now weekends, retreats, camps, rallies and revivals – leading hundreds of students and adults in worship.
In addition to touring, Chris works as an independent record producer/engineer and is a part of the worship/creative arts staff at 121 Community Church in Grapevine, TX. Chris Clayton resides in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area with his wife Kara and their four boys: Corbin, Callen, Cade and Cohen.
His newest album, “All these things and more,” releases June 3. This album features the songs “King Forever,” “You Never Let Go,” “Breathing Air Again,” and “Stand Amazed.”
On June 13, there will be a CD release party at 121 Community Church (840 Mustang Drive; Grapevine, TX). Doors open at 7 pm and the concert begins at 7:30 pm.
