Music Director – Tom Zehnder

Tom Zehnder is an accomplished singer, musician and song-leader. While he has focused his career on composing and writing for the video game industry including the award-nominated score for Van Helsing the Game and many of Ubisoft’s Just Dance songs, he has never stopped singing in church. Raised in L.A., Tom has performed at sacred and secular venues including Yale Divinity School, Catholic Charities 100th Anniversary Gala in Washington, DC, Ghost Ranch New Mexico, CBGB in New York City and Hollywood’s Troubadour and Roxy, among others.

While attending UCLA on his way to completing a B.A. in Music Composition summa cum laude, Tom had the privilege of serving as Presbyterian Intern under the mentorship of Charles Doak, where he was responsible for co-leading the Bruin Presbyterian Fellowship.

This year marked the ninth year that Ghost Ranch Conference Center in Abiquiu, New Mexico asked Tom and his twin brother, Tim, to provide music leadership in worship, and entertainment during the 4th of July parade and at a workshop class entitled “Making Music as Families.” Tom and Tim’s band is called Zehnder.

Tom officially began his Director of Music position at Culver City Presbyterian in November 2015 and is thrilled to be collaborating with Pastor Frances and providing worship music leadership.
