Director of Worship
West Breedlove is the Director of Worship and Minister to 30s. West experienced a radical, Godward shift in his life following his Junior year in high school. Though he’d professed to follow Jesus, he says his heart and life never lined up with that profession. God used musicians like Keith Green and Micheal Card to kindle West’s affections with the matchless grace of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Grabbing an old guitar from his attic, West started writing songs that celebrated this grace while also mourning the painful presence of sin. He went on to study music at Furman University and earn a masters in Biblical Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary, where he continued to write songs and lead others in worship. West has been on staff at Cedar Springs since 2002. His wife, Suzanne, teaches music at Paideia Academy. Their two children, Abby and Ben, hope to sing on Broadway and play college football (respectively!). In his free time, you’ll find West mountain biking the great single track trails of Knoxville.
