Caden McMullen has been an active member of Bright Christian Church since infancy. His parents Steve and Dara have served faithfully with our Bright community for thirty years. With the spiritual leadership of his parents and five older siblings, Caden began a relationship with Jesus Christ at an early age.

It was at a supporting ministry, Whitewater Christian Service Camp, where he was challenged to step out of his comfort zone in leading worship for the first time. Initially, it was a terrifying experience, but one that changed the trajectory of his life and created deeper roots in God.

Caden now has a zeal to tell the younger generation about Jesus, to foster a spiritually growing community and to equip students to stand firm in their faith.

Ashley has been attending Bright for nearly 16 years. She began leading worship when she was 17 for Bright's Youth Ministry and at Women's Ministry events. She graduated from CCU with a degree in Psychology and Biblical Studies. She also focused her study on counseling with a biblical perspective.

Ashley recently worked for a church as the worship leader, and her passion for worship ministry only continued to grow. She also worked for another ministry in Price Hill helping women overcome trauma and addiction. Ashley has a passion for helping people worship the Lord more intimately; both in a corporate worship setting or helping others grow individually in their walk with the Lord.

Dominic developed a passion for music from an early age. He learned piano when he was 7, drums when he was 11, and he picked up guitar and bass along the way, all the while loving to sing and write songs. He is currently attending the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in his senior year, majoring in Commercial Music Production. Dominic was raised in a Christian home, and in 2020, he joined the Bright Worship Team as a volunteer. From there, his passion went far beyond music. Since then, he has a new desire to lead people to Jesus Christ and to deepen their relationship with Him through worship.
