Lincoln Brewster, an internationally-acclaimed worship leader, is the Worship Arts Pastor of Bayside Church in Granite Bay, Ca. A multi-talented guitarist, singer and songwriter, he speaks to the hearts of people who are hungry for non-traditional, passionate worship. Lincoln’s latest album, “Real Life” debuted at #1 on Nielsen SoundScan’s Praise & Worship Albums chart and at #3 on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart. While he has reached impressive heights of success, Lincoln’s passion for God far surpasses his musical talent – and he’s an awfully good musician. As modest as he is talented, Lincoln displays his passion to help people enter God’s presence by recording worship songs that minister to a new generation of believers.
