Bryan Sirchio’s passion for justice is as apparent in his music as it is in his life. When he’s not touring the country, playing songs about radical discipleship, he is leading groups to Haiti. Bryan is an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ, and has produced 13 CD’s and four songbooks in his 24 years of music ministry. His emotionally charged songs cover everything from sweatshops to sexuality, from Christ discovered in street children to the sacredness of creation. In all this music we are drawn into Bryan’s ardent quest to live with integrity as a follower of Jesus. Learn more at www.sirchio.com.
