Avi Jackson

Worship Leader

Coming from a family of worship leaders, it was only natural that Avniel (Avi) began his music career at a young age.

As an upcoming artist, Avi found little fulfillment in the world of secular music and, as a result, focused on the one thing that always fulfilled him, Worship. Avi soon became a leader with Young Life, where he developed a love for discipleship and preaching the gospel to young adults through word and song.

As a worship leader, Avi’s goal is to use music to help people worship and share the life-changing Gospel of Jesus.
