Worship Leader

Abed Rondina

Abed Rondina is a worship leader based in Massachusetts and serves at Hope Chapel in Sterling, MA in the worship and youth ministry. He is finishing his Senior year at UMass Amherst with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications. He began going to FUGE Camps as a student in 2017 and became a FUGE Camps Staffer in 2022 where he served in the Philadelphia location as a video producer, then in 2023 in the same location as a worship leader. Abed is passionate about praising God through songs inspired by scripture and truth, and is determined to lead others into pure-hearted worship. He believes that worship through music is just one way we can worship the Lord, and that worship is a lifestyle rather than an experience. He is ready to see the life-change that the Lord will bring through FUGE Camps and through the local church with the next generation of Christ followers.
