Choir Director/Accompanist: Beau Stroupe
Beau Stroupe recently moved back to the Charlotte area from Nashville, TN, where he served in both large and small churches. (He has also lived in Atlanta, GA and New York City where he was active in music and recording.) Beau is an accomplished singer, songwriter, artist, and actor. He has worked extensively with musicians like Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, and Stephen Curtis Chapman. And, he has traveled widely leading seminars on worship, music, and the arts. (He has even gone to Russia, the Philippines, France, and Iraq as a conference speaker/consultant for church music.)

He appreciates both traditional and contemporary music. But, most importantly, he pays attention to the words of the songs. He sees music as something that helps people to understand and experience the depth of God’s love in Jesus Christ. Beau also has four children Abbey 20, Zach 17, Hope 16, and Noah 14.
