About Frontline

Frontline is an auditioned team of OCC students, led by Ozark's Isaac Schade.

As an educational tool for students, Frontline provides unparalleled training experience for worship leadership and pastoral ministry. Members rehearse each week and lead together in OCC's weekly chapel service.

The musicianship, teamwork, and spiritual maturity required for Frontline are tremendous building blocks for vocational ministry. Team members also work with the latest audio and video production equipment and gain valuable experience in worship leading.


Frontline Collective writes worship music from our community, for our community and yours. Use these free resources in your church.
