VFC Leadership

Sam Talbert | Director of Worship Arts


Born in Orange County, and raised in San Jose, Sam is Californian to the core. Having spent most of his life playing music, strumming a guitar and drumming on anything he can find, Sam lives and breathes musical worship. His passion to see people enter into the presence of Jesus through musical worship is evident as soon as you meet him. He loves the eclectic, artsy, and creative community of Vintage Faith Church and is driven to see life transformation for the sake of the gospel in Santa Cruz. He and his lovely wife Natalie love spending time with their daughter Azariah Rae. They both are avid crossfitters, enjoy beaches, frisbees, and crafting the perfect coffee.
