Steven Hantschel is an original song writer and worship leader based in Clarksville, TN. He's led worship for 100's of churches, events, festivals, weddings, funerals, and youth events. Often he is accompanied by his wife, Emily, who plays keys and sings. He has two full length live original worship projects, as well as an EP, that can be found by searching any streaming service for: "Steven Hantschel". If you need a worship leader in a pinch, planning a special event, or have an opening at a festival, Steven is one to call on. Mixing dynamic acoustic playing with strong vocal passion and presence, and a heart of worship, you get the complete worship package in Steven.
We hired Steven and his wife, Emily as the worship band for our youth retreat. They had done youth retreats before and totally got it. Helped with a lot of other stuff besides the music, which was top quality. Their price was very fair, compared to the other estimates. They are both very personable and the teenagers felt completely comfortable around them. All the adult chaperones loved working with them and would certainly do it again.
I cannot encourage anyone looking for a guest worship leader or a time of special music to bring Steve Hantachel into your fellowship. Steve has blessed our congregation many times and his heart to serve the vision of the pastor and not to distract from the flow of a service makes him so easy to work with. He is anointed and skilled! I have always enjoyed his heart and spirit of fellowship!
Steve has led worship multiple times in a variety of contexts for churches I have been a part of. Really appreciated him and his heart. He is super flexible and does a great job of ensuring the style fits your culture. Highly recommend checking his music out and booking him if your able.
More than a concert, Steve and his band lead you through an experience with the Holy Spirit. His honest, story-telling style of worship leading will help you relate to his songs. You won’t regret hiring Steve for your next worship event!
