Mitch Nehring

Worship Leader



Mitch Nehring has led worship for Calvary SonRise since its beginning, when it was a small home church.


Mitch grew up in Richfield, Wisconsin, one of four boys. He met and married his wife, Lori, while in college, and today, the couple lives in Oshkosh with their three daughters and one son.


His passion for music began at a child, and easily transitioned into one of the many ways he has served the Lord since he committed his life to Christ at age 20. “It’s a great privilege to lead God’s people in worshiping Him,” he says.


Mitch plays guitar, drums, and piano and holds a bachelor’s degree in Recording Technology.  


It only seems logical that Mitch’s testimony involves music. He was invited by a friend to go to the Cornerstone Music Festival in Southern Illinois. Even though he wasn’t a Christian at the time, he accepted the invitation.


During the festival, as he was laying on his back at his campsite, he looked up at the stars and recalled what his childhood Sunday school teacher told him. “God is in all places at once, and He knows our thoughts and what’s in our heart.” At that moment, Mitch came to realize that God sees him at all times, even when he was involved in his worst sin. Mitch shares, “That freaked me out. So I asked the Lord to forgive me of my sins and to help me to live for Him.”


Favorite Bible Verse:


“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
