Nothing gets Tommy more fired up than students who awaken to their personal relationship with Jesus. He continually calls students into opportunities to be stretched in their faith and grow in prayer. As one who has been radically transformed by God, Tommy is able to call students into a life completely surrendered to God.


Hannah Bechtel

Pastor at River Valley Church

Hannah believes living out your faith should be as exciting and fun as it is challenging. She gets passionate about people discovering God’s truth for their lives, and thinks there’s nothing better than being with church family in God’s house!

She loves coffee, summertime, traveling, and movies with subtitles (she’s weird that way!) Hannah’s a mother to 3 daughters and 1 son, and considers that her best ‘job’ ever!

Local Sound

Nashville, TN

Local Sound" is a movement born from within the Nashville-based college ministry, MyLocal.
We know our identity is found in the hope of Jesus Christ and as key holders to the kingdom of
heaven, we do whatever it takes to bring people to Jesus by glorifying God with all that we have.
Simply put, we are culture creators. The "Local" within Local Sound speaks to the roots of who
we are and why we do what we do. We fully back God's dream of "The Local Church" and we
believe that God, the original culture creator, has designed the local church as plan "A"—to
immerse the world in His culture. We were never intended to be the products of temporary
culture. We were made to be distributors of an eternal one.
Our "Sound" is a reflection of our heart and our passion to unite the word of God with high
energy, innovative music that reaches the world. We believe we have been called to spread the
gospel through relevant and inspiring message-driven songs that express the joy found in a life
fully devoted to Christ and the realization of the deep love that the Shepherd has for us
