Amanda was born and raised in California where she passionately pursued all things music. With parents who were active in local churches, she had many opportunities to participate in many worship settings, as well as many different denominational churches. Upon graduating high school, she decided to pursue a worship calling instead of performing arts. After arriving in Tucson in 2003, she became a worship intern at a local church where she met and married her husband, Darrin, and they started pursuing worship together. Having a diverse musical background, she loves finding ways to mesh together all generations and styles, so we can come together as a unified church when we praise Jesus.
After arriving at New Life in 2015, they jumped right into music ministry, helping in every area and department. Amanda found favor, moved into leadership, and is now partnering with her husband to raise up leaders around them in the Creative Arts.
Darrin and Amanda have 3 young kids and a large puppy. Spending time away with their family is important and they love to jump in the car and head for either the mountains or beach, always in pursuit of bodies of water.
