Amber Rhoads

Amber grew up in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and has been singing since she was 5 years old.  She studied and majored in Music at the University of North Texas and Southwestern Assemblies of God University.  After traveling for many years, she took a position as a Worship Pastor at a Dallas church, helping launch and grow a thriving music ministry.

After 5 years, she felt a shift into a new season of songwriting, outreach and passion for seeing lives changed through God’s presence.  For the next 6 years, she was the worship leader and President for Sole Desire Ministries, a non-profit organization that ministered all over the world and started a hunger relief program.  Through this ministry and its work during Hurricane Katrina, Amber began leading worship in Spanish and has since had the opportunity to minister to thousands in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Israel.

She is currently a Worship Pastor on staff at Gateway Church in Southlake, TX where she facilitates platform coaching and leads worship for the Frisco campus.  Amber was also the worship leader for the Women of Faith Fall 2013 Tour.  She is featured as a vocalist on albums for Gateway Worship, Zach Neese, Rita Springer and Women of Faith.  She has recorded five English albums and one Spanish album.  Amber's latest solo EP called "Broken Beautiful" released on August 27th, 2013.  It contains 6 original songs co-written with Mia Fieldes, Michael Farren, Richie Fike, David Leonard (All Sons & Daughters), Jamie Birkenfeld Whisenhunt and Aaron Michael Brown. 

She loves people and desires to see every person experience an intimate relationship with God.  Amber's message is one of restoration, healing and love.  She has been on a journey the last few years that has had its share of valley experiences. Amber openly shares her testimony of going through a divorce while in the ministry and dealing with her daughter's diagnosis of an incurable disease that causes tumors in all her vital organs.  As she believes for her daughter's complete restoration, Amber gives hope and encouragement through music to others who need healing in their lives.  Her heart is to see God take the brokenness in every life and turn it into something beautiful.

Amber is a seasoned vocalist with many years experience in live performance and studio recording. She is a private vocal coach as well as the vocal coach for Gateway Frisco's Worship Team. She is also a consultant for worship teams and bands by providing teaching and instruction.  Amber is available for ministry events such as Nights of Worship, Worship Seminars, Conferences and other services.  She is currently booking studio sessions as a lead or background vocalist and vocal coach.  Please fill out the form in the BOOKING section.  You can find out where Amber will be leading worship and touring in our EVENTS section.
