Mr. Lafferty has been involved with music his entire life. From middle school choir to playing various instruments in multiple bands, every day has been packed with music.He began his musical career in third grade, blocking everyone's path by playing his harmonica in the playground tunnel. After being crawled over all school year, summer brought new opportunities...His grandpa's radio program. After an early morning (6:30am) walk around the local mall as well as a routine trip to "MacDonald's," Heath began joining the family at the church. Weekday mornings at 11, Poppy would start broadcasting to "all those out there in radio land." If you were lucky enough to tune in on a Tuesday, you would hear the Legg girls singing all across the land. Being that the Legg girls were his grandma and her daughters, Heath faced little resistance when wanting to take a song from them and do his ever-famous, "Jesus Loves Me." And so it began...Over the next several years, Heath would manage to find his true voice in his middle school choir. He would later ReFind that same voice a few octaves lower. He began singing in his youth group as well as occasionally with the Christian group his father was in.At the ripe age of 14, he was gifted the greatest tool in a worship leader's arsenal, his first real guitar. You can still see that guitar played today! With help from basically the entire family, Heath was able to eventually make a G, C, and D chord. That's all you REALLY need for a worship song anyway, right?Having somewhat honed his skills with the church youth band, Mr. Lafferty started jamming with his cousin Seth and a few of his buddies. For some reason, God decided to use this group of goofballs from southern WV and make them into a band. And the rest is history...What's that? You don't know the rest of the story? Well ask me about it this Sunday at church!For those who can't wait that long, I'll sum it up for ya. God used that band to bring this southern boy to the big city of Huntington. Once here, God lead him to a huge (nerf-war-friendly) building housing a church on fire for Him. Heath quickly got plugged in with the music, learning more about worship than ever before. A few years went by, bands moved on, and a new band was formed. Now, with a magnificent group of guys by his side, Mr. Lafferty can be found (almost) every Sunday leading The Crossing in the worship of the One responsible for it all.
