In 2007, she attended Catch the Fire’s School of Ministry (formerly Toronto Airport Church – known for the Toronto Blessing). This led to a journey of healing and equipping that eventually brought her to Bethel School of Worship in 2011, followed by Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, where she and Jay met. She’s done all three years at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. Erinn is passionate about emotional health, authentic worship, and building healthy family/community.

Director/Overseer of Worship and the Convergence Worship Community

Andrew was born in Brooklyn NY, and raised by a single mother with a heart for worship and prayer. He grew up singing in choirs, ensembles and worship teams. Upon coming to genuine conversion 5 days into his freshman at Nyack College, worship took on a richer and deeper meaning in Andrew's life. He began listening to Jason Upton, Misty Edwards, Hillsong, Bethel, etc and decided to teach himself how to play guitar. Since then, God has favored him to help build the worship department of several ministries, as well as personally traveling up and down the East Coast bringing the supernatural power of God through the gift of worship.
