Reilly grew up in Stoney Creek Valley of Dauphin, PA. He currently lives in Palmyra, PA with his wife, Larissa. Reilly and Larissa met in 2017 at Mt. Lou San Summer Camp in Harrisburg while he was in a gap-year program. His passion for worship combined with her love of service created a special way to minister and love. Reilly and Larissa have a corgi named Toby and a cat named Moe; and no, they don’t get along lol.
Reilly has been leading worship at various churches and events for about 10 years. He started a worship band with some of his friends in highschool at their church and has ever since been developing his leadership abilities. Worship through music has been one of the most intimate ways Reilly has encountered the Holy Spirit. He continues to strive for authenticity in leadership and his relationships.
Reilly envisions a church family where “presence” is greater than “performance”; in which the presence of Jesus is so overwhelming and intimate, that it doesn’t matter who is on stage. One of Reilly’s fundamental passages in the Bible is Romans 7-8. He loves how it perfectly depicts the rawness of humanity while also reminding us of the refreshing truth that “...there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” He encourages you to dive into this passage and listen to God’s voice.
