No, my real name is not Lion Burnheart, but I wish! Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Liam Bernhard and I come from the Great Lakes of Northern Michigan. #TCMI After completing my vocal degree at Oklahoma City University, I was on the planting team for Crestwood Vineyard Church, where I served as the Worship & Arts Pastor for six years.
There can be a tension between sacred and secular when it comes to music. I believe every place we tread becomes sacred space. My desire is to see these expressions overlap more and more. During my time at Crestwood Vineyard, I curated shows for artists, both touring and local, at “The Basement at CV.” As a local musician myself, I enjoy playing songs in living rooms, coffee shops and bars alike.
As a follower of Jesus, I am passionate about unifying the Church of Oklahoma and equipping worshippers in holistic worship. I lead Worship School OKC alongside my bro Chris Williams. I also run a similar worship school for young adults called Youth Worship Academy. When I’m not enduring episodes of the Bachelor with my bride, Emily, you can find me at any one of our fine OKC movie theaters.
I also serve a global worship, missions and prayer movement as the Regional Director for Burn 24/7 and the local director for Burn 24/7 OKC. I love being a part of a powerful expression of love that unifies the Church around the world.
