    WORSHIP LEaders

    Mitchell House Music began at the piano, in a house steeped in church music, a passion for harmony, and a love for Jesus! Moira, Mason, and Meril started singing their trios more for Mid-South district events and eventually, when asked to sing for larger scale events, found that singing with their parents (and Mason's wife, Emily) was a much richer experience. MHM is comprised of Derek and Amy Mitchell with their children, Moira, Mason with his wife Emily, and Meril. Derek is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene, in ministry with his wife, Amy, for over 25 years. They all reside in Greater Nashville, TN where they work day jobs that allow them to pursue joining their voices in praise to God in worship. Their style ranges from traditional gospel to southern gospel to jazz. Whether it's a congregational worship hour or special music for revivals and fundraisers, Mitchell House Music has the music for it. We can't wait to worship with you and look forward to the opportunities!
