When it comes to reaching people, music works!
Since high school, Fred Heumann has planned and led worship services for 4 to 40,000, in places as varied as the Australian outback, Nairobi, Nashville, Los Angeles and the UK, and on 5 continents, in multiple nations and at several multinational events. He has a life-long passion for people to encounter Christ through music and worship, as well as for equipping and resourcing the Church.
He has been an itinerant music evangelist with WINGS OF LIGHT, worship pastor/leader for several churches, part of the leadership team of Youth for Christ International, a missionary in the UK, and developed digital and print worship resources for the Church. He teaches and works with churches and other ministries in worship renewal, as well as offering training, teaching and consulting in music, worship and mission.
Fred holds the Master of Worship Studies degree from the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies, where he is also currently pursuing a Doctorate. He is using that currently in a special way in the strategic nation of Ukraine. He teaches twice yearly at the Ukrainian Evangelical Theological Seminary, Kyiv (UETS), and works with their Music Ministry and Theology staff all during the year. Alongside UETS, he has pioneered MUSIC IN WORSHIP, a yearly national worship training event for church leaders and their worship teams, bringing in teachers from the Ukraine, USA, the United Kingdom, and Europe. He is also a global "Arts Catalyst" with the international Lausanne Movement (lausanne.org).
