Paclife Worship was birthed out of Pacific Life Bible College and is primarily comprised of students (and a few staff) from our campus in Surrey, BC, Canada. We’re a community of singers, songwriters, musicians and creative people who are passionate about Jesus and His church. The members of our team serve at a variety of churches across the Vancouver area. When we gather to lead worship as a collective, we do it for the purpose of building up and edifying the Church (the capital C is intentional, because we’re passionate about the bride of Christ, no matter the age, geographical location, ethnicity, denomination or style!). We LOVE leading people in the worship of our savior, and we get excited when congregations of people encounter Him in real ways.
