One of the greatest honors that we as a ministry partner has is to have someone feel like they are part of our tribe. There is no greater endorsement than to have one of our customers speak highly of WAVE. With this partnership in mind, we often find ways to thank our customers with SWAG. Kennedy is our director of all things SWAG.
If you want something, Kennedy is the girl that you go to. Kennedy combines two traits necessary to do this job well: She has a love for all things creative, and she has a love for our clients.
When she isn’t working on our SWAG packs she is most likely in a tech booth running something production related. Kennedy is proficient in everything from lights, graphics, directing cameras, to producing. Whether you are a client getting a SWAG pack at the end of a project, or you have just seen a shirt on someone and decided that you want one, drop Kennedy an email and she will hook you up. She will make sure that everything is just right for you.

Don quickly noticed the differences that set this team apart from the other Design/Build firms that he had worked with. Over the past decade, Don has also produced some of the largest conferences in the country as the Creative Director. He has toured with artists like Lincoln Brewster and John David Webster, and has been the LD for bands like Sanctus Real, David Crowder Band, as well as many others.
