With a message that touches the heart and a singing voice that inspires, CHAYA tells of the greatness of God’s mercy and grace. She has experienced His love, forgiveness, and healing in a most powerful way, and longs for everyone she comes in contact with to have that same experience. She reaches all ages with her personal story that tells of a wonderfully happy childhood that was shattered when she entered her early teens. She speaks candidly about how she chose the path of bitterness and anger instead of softening her heart. She tells of the road back to wholeness through Jesus Christ, and is living proof that with a life sold out to the Lord, there is hope and triumph in the midst of tremendous heartbreak.
CHAYA has been privileged to lead worship at many churches, and is often asked to return multiple times. Her reputation precedes her, as she is known as being very flexible and a pleasure to work with. Her piano style is similar to well-known worship leader/recording artist Jason Upton. Her voice has been compared to that of jazz singer, Diana Krall and soul/R&B sensation, Joss Stone. Having written much of the music that she performs, she is able to reach from her heart directly into the hearts of her listeners.
She is in demand as a speaker/singer for women’s events, conferences, retreats, Christmas Programs, and church services. She has opened for the popular duo, Shane and Shane, and performed in venues with people such as Rebecca St. James, and Fernando Ortega. She has four CD’s out, with the latest album, ‘Mood for love’, produced by Ralph Stover, who has worked with MANY talented musicians!
Whether CHAYA is ministering to a small group, or to thousands, there is an astounding feeling of intimacy. Since giving her life to Jesus Christ, she knows that whatever the setting, it’s where the Lord has placed her. People seem drawn to come up to her and tell her that the words she spoke or sang cut directly to their heart. She says that this is what makes her ministry exciting and worthwhile, and it confirms that this is what God has called her to.
Chaya’s husband, Rick, is a worship and sports pastor at their church in Chico CA. They have been married 15 years and have four beautiful children.
