• I've loved getting to know Graydon as a friend and worship leader over the years. One thing thats always been a signature of his worship leadership is the genuine energy and enthusiasm he brings to a worship service. Graydon has an endearing way of using musical skill and honest passion to point people to Jesus.

  • There are countless talented musicians that can sing and play an instrument, but there's something very different when someone walks onto a stage and allows Jesus to take the spotlight instead of themselves. Graydon Tomlinson carries that kind of humility and presence. He has proven time and time again to not only be a skillful musician and singer but an anointed communicator of the Gospel. His passion for Jesus is evident as he pours his heart out on and off the stage. As an event host, I'd highly recommend Graydon for your next event.

  • I've had the privilege of working with many worship leaders in my 20 years of ministry; Graydon is simply one of the best. He is a master sailor, able to guide any size of congregation deep into the ocean of God's presence. He is a man of tremendous character who leads with tremendous musical skill and authenticity.

Graydon has been singing since his days in the choir loft as a kid, and leading worship professionally since 2005. He spent several years as a worship leader at NewSpring Church (4th largest church in America, and consistently among the fastest-growing churches) and currently serves as Director of Modern Worship at First Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC and as a conference musician, leading worship at several conferences around the southeast annually.

The aim of his ministry is to use music to teach, inspire, and encourage people to boldly claim their identity as a child of God, and to live fully in the freedom that it provides. He has a special passion for revitalizing old hymns and using them as a powerful worship tool in modern worship, and consulting with churches to create and develop their modern worship programming.

He met his wife, Heather, while they were both students at Clemson University, and they currently live in Greenville, SC with their three children (Mallie, Lincoln, and Tucker) and faithful dog, Boaz.
