Meet Andrea Rosario

Meet Andrea Rosario, a vocalist, and one of Worship Center's newest worship leaders.

by McKenna Whisler on July 18, 2018

Andrea Rosario serves on the Worship Team at Worship Center. She and her husband, Edwin and son, Jayden, have been involved at our church for almost a year. We met up with Andrea recently, asking her questions that we thought would help you get to know her better. 

What's one thing that people may not know about you?
This may seem silly, but so many people think that I am a lot younger than what I am. I get it all the time, and as much as I love the compliments I am embracing my current stage in life at 34!

What's something you are passionate about?
People! I feel like God is leading me in this season into new avenues of establishing new relationships and making some awesome connections! We all need each other, and God created us for community!

Where did you grow up?
I grew up and lived most of my life in Buffalo, NY. Honestly, I use to have such a love-hate relationship with that city, but Buffalo is and always will be my home. It has developed into such a great city over the years with new developments, progress in positive change, etc. Of course, like many cities, there is still much more work to be done. My heart is to be able to eventually take what I’ve learned (new perspectives, growth, ideas, connections) and take it back home to lend a helping hand. I don’t ever want to forget where I came from but excited for where I am today.

How long have you been at Worship Center?
As crazy as it may sound, I feel like I’ve been apart of Worship Center’s church family for a long time but it will only be a year this August. I love my church!

When did you become a Christian?
I did not grow up in a Christian home. However my grandmother took on the responsibility of taking me to church at a young age, and I am so glad she did. As far as I can remember I have been connected to God. At the age of 12, I felt a life-changing fire (Holy Spirit) run through my body. During that service, the Pastor gave an altar call, and I accepted the Lord as my Savior. Eventually, as I continued to go to church on my own, my mother followed suit and gave her life to Christ not too long after I did.

What's your favorite genre of music?
Anything that catches my ear or heart! I love all types and styles of music. But I am and have always been a worshipper at heart.

What are you looking forward to?
I’m honestly so excited about the direction that God has been leading me in lately. I can see His hand in every detail of my life. He’s the light on my path and every day I can see more clearly because I’m slowly learning to abandon myself and allow Him to take over my personal agendas. The future seems bright and progressive this year. God has given me purpose, and I am truly finding my identity in Him. I couldn’t say that about four years ago.

When not serving at church, what could we find you doing?
In the community or spending time with my family. I’m new to Lancaster, and I find it fascinating here, so if I’m not working my part-time job I like to take walks around the city, go on hikes, volunteer for local organizations, attend events of empowerment/awareness or discover new coffee/restaurant spots!

What is your favorite part of serving at Worship Center?
The people! Have I said this already? No seriously, from the moment I walked into Worship Center, it felt like home. The people are awesome here, and I feel honored and privileged to serve alongside such an awesome worship team who are open and willing to be vessels of Christ. The connections are authentic, genuine and loving, something I hadn’t experienced in a long time.

How long have you been singing/leading worship?
I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I was surrounded by worshippers and musicians in my family at a young age. I lead worship for about ten years at my church in Buffalo. I stopped about four years ago. It was a journey that led me to where I am today. God’s ways are higher than ours. There’s purpose in our journey no matter how it looks!

Favorite food?
Oh boy, do I have to choose!? I am not a picky eater. I love anything that tastes good. I use to believe I should have been a food critic because I am so passionate about food!
