Speaker – Revs. Brad and Megan Gray
Brad and Megan Gray are a clergy couple who have been serving two churches in the Charleston District for the past 7 seven years. Brad is the pastor of St. Andrews Parish UMC and Megan is the pastor of Cokesbury UMC. They met while they were at Duke Divinity School and have been married for 14 years. They have two children, a son Isaac who is 10 and a daughter Blaine who is 7. While in seminary they got to know one another by playing golf together every Monday. They both enjoy being outdoors, taking family road trips, and running. One of their favorite things is to share ministry opportunities. They are looking forward to the opportunity to lead together at Immerse.
Worship Leaders – Chad & Kami Turner
Chad and Kami Turner are a husband and wife music team who lead worship services weekly at Advent United Methodist Church and for Elevate Student Ministries in Simpsonville, SC. They have been married for seventeen years and reside in Greenville, SC. The two have led, recorded and sung worship together every step of the way.
Both Chad and Kami have recorded professionally live and in studio in
Nashville, TN for the NBC television show, Nashville Star. Kami has sung on the Grand Ole Opry for BET’s Gospel Music Stellar Awards for Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary and many other Gospel artists. Chad sang and traveled with country artist Billy Gilman and once had the privilege of singing with him on CBS’ Jerry Lewis Telethon. Aside from television, the couple have always served wherever they lived and worked at the local church level and believe it is what kept them grounded in God and faith.
In addition to music, the couple enjoys travel, day trips, beach life and good
food. Chad currently manages Kami’s band, “Kami Ocean and The Rhythm” who perform in the Upstate of South Carolina and beyond for corporate events, weddings and private parties. More than anything, however, these two, have a heart for worship and especially for the youth of today.
