Gabe Rangel, Worship Leader
Gabe and his wife Jessica and four kiddos are from the “Big” community of Bridgeport, Texas located about 60 miles west of Grand Prairie! Gabe has been in ministry since 2007 from volunteer ministry to full-time student and family ministry in Vernon, San Antonio, and Bridgeport. Throughout his ministry, he has also served through leading worship in many capacities in youth ministry, leading worship for the the Northwest District of FCA at several middle and senior high schools and most recently served as the interim worship leader for Aledo UMC. Gabe believes that worship is not a performance, but it is moments that we express our hearts to God and we leave our hearts open to listen! He is so excited to join the Ignite worship service and be a part of discovering ways to help others encounter the unconditional love of our Creator!
