We the Union is a collective of worship leaders – Alan Thomas, Klayton Seyler and Aaron Williams – that partner with local churches and like-minded ministries to see God’s people encounter his presence and his love. We The Union writes songs and leads worship with a desire to encourage and empower churches to raise up generations of worshippers and see those who are far from God draw near to Him.
Lead singer, Aaron Williams, attended SOAR as a teenager with his youth group from Immanuel Baptist Church in Camden, Arkansas. Since that time, Aaron has participated in the SOAR band in various roles, culminating in his current leadership role.
Jordan Feliz embraces his love for R&B, soul, and folk, asg a prominent Christian music artist. His debut project, Beloved, was released in 2015 and features songs that bring the rich influence of 70’s sensibilities into a modern pop context. The album’s title track was written for his daughter – a song to remind her she is loved beyond comparison. In 2016 Jordan released his second album, The River, and he says that if he had to sum up his record in one phrase, it would be “simple lyric.”
Jordan Bowen serves as the Missions Pastor at Oasis Church in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Originally from OKC, Oklahoma Jordan attended Central Baptist College in Arkansas where he met his wife, Sarah. Together they enjoy growing and sharing their heart for missions. We are pleased to welcome Jordan back this year as a SOAR MC.
McKenna Marlow is a native of Moore, Oklahoma where she is an active member at Southgate Baptist Church. She is a recent graduate of Central Baptist College where she received a degree in music. Through CBC, SOAR and her church, she has been given opportunities to serve both at SOAR as MC and on a Volunteer Student Missions trip to Ghana, Africa. In her spare time McKenna loves singing and all things Disney. This year, she will join Jordan Bowen as a SOAR MC.
