Bruce Sechrest developed his musical interest over 65 years ago in High Point, North Carolina where he had been born and raised. He grew up in a Christian household where his father had been a Baptist minister pastor for over 50 years which led to his influence into music evangelism. Early on, Bruce joined both the high school chorus and the band to help advance his training in basic music composition and choral direction which eventually led to the production of his first vinyl music project in 1976.
From 1980-2000, Sechrest devoted his passion to the gospel music ministry by teaching and directing for church choirs and evangelical concerts, which would serve as the foundation to his modern day evangelical music thrust almost 20 years later.
In 2015, years after a multi-year hiatus, he returns to North Carolina to the studio, to take on modern Christian music evangelism with new engineering and a contemporary sound produced by Crossroads Music in Arden, North Carolina. In addition, he founded the nonprofit music publishing company, Fairhavens Well, to house his publishing efforts and allow others to come alongside and participate in his evangelical effort. This non-profit publishing company was established and named after his father’s church that was struck by lightning and burned to the ground, leaving only the wellhead, showing where it used to stand. Using the concept of water, he plans to publish music to promote his music and evangelical message. This return to music has sparked a newfound passion under his legacy to music. He simply wants to create Christian music with four goals: movement, memories, message, and evangelism. Sechrest’s legacy in the Christian community has not gone unnoticed.
Bruce travels with his wife Marilyn and does concert dates on a regular basis in a multistate area. They support and are members of Friendly Baptist Church in High Point North Carolina.
Bruce is a full time music evangelist and currently travels a 500 mile radius of Nashville Tennesse USA, and has global exposure on internet radio, podcasts, and social media.
