Spotlight: Nick Torontali
Tell us about yourself: Originally from Orlando, FL, my wife and I moved to Reno, NV to work at Grace Church. I grew up in a good family and started following Jesus when I was 18. From there, I started playing in the church band and eventually started singing and leading worship.
Tell us about your church/company:
Grace Church is located in the heart of Reno, NV nestled in the valley between the high desert and the mountains of Lake Tahoe. Grace averages 3,000 people a Sunday and is focused on reaching those far from God. Grace recently started a movement to fight addiction in Reno and is currently raising $6 million dollars to build recovery homes for people struggling with addiction as well as lay the foundation of hope for young children.
What is your role/position at your church/company? : I'm the Worship Pastor at Grace. I am lead the Worship Team as well as help oversee Sunday Productions and the Creative Community at our church.
What do you love most about your role?:
I’m passionate about Jesus, the local church, creativity and how those three intersect as part of God’s greater redemption story for this world. I love leading people towards Jesus and am thankful for how technology can be used to help in that.
How did you end up in the role you have now?:
We moved from Orlando to Reno to take the position at Grace 6 years ago. It's been a wild ride and we're excited to keep it going! I never went to school for music but I've been playing music since high school and have been a part of numerous bands and projects including touring and in the studio, professionally.
Ok...How did you hear about VMC?:
I think I saw VMC online, maybe Facebook. We are always looking for great screen content so I'm constantly scouring the interwebs for new stuff.
How often do you use VMC, and what do you love about what we do?:
We use VMC almost every Sunday. Their content is, by far, the best out there. We aren't a big fan of the cheesier, cartoony motion backgrounds and so VMC works great for us. We love the natural side to it that compliments our church's location-near the mountains of Lake Tahoe. The crew at VMC have fantastic customer service and anytime I've needed anything, they respond so quickly. Keep up the awesome work, guys!
