MICHAEL HODDY

PRINCIPAL

michael@somersetmediagroup.com

With 23 years of experience and hundreds of innovative designs, systems, and solutions created and deployed over those years, Michael launched Somerset Media Group to better serve the technical, production, and environmental needs and opportunities of the local church. He has been active in the NYC/NJ metro area for the past two decades as an active performing musician, arranger, producer, audio engineer, church leader, clinician, speaker, instructor, and consultant. He has served on the staff of six churches ranging from a brand-new church start-up that began in his living room to a 200-year old denominational church of historical note, in roles ranging from liturgical worship to cutting-edge contemporary music and production to church planter. He has also served on the faculty of two local colleges teaching in areas of church ministry, music technology, and audio production. He collaborates with churches and other organizations in worship and arts-related areas to clarify vision and mission, develop leadership, optimize team functionality, and leverage technology, all to provide a solid infrastructure with which to engage in ministry. Michael’s goal for technology in the church is that it would be inspiring, not distracting, and that it would serve as an effective springboard for ministry rather than an obstacle to it. In Somerset Media Group, Michael serves as the Principal, Client Relations Lead, and Chief Designer.
