Sacred Winds Ensemble and Ministries

Christian outreach through the arts, music, and education.

Who We Are

5847204442_ef5ed5b324_bThe Sacred Winds Ensemble is a wind band that consists of more than 60 volunteer professional and paraprofessional musicians from across the United States and abroad.  Undergirded by the exposition of Scripture, the ensemble presents musical programs of diverse musical styles and influences.

The ensemble has performed at the Baptist Church Music Conference National Convention, the Kentucky Music Educators Association State Music Conference, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the Paramount Arts Center, as well as various as churches throughout Kentucky.  The ministry has been recognized by The House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Kentucky for “proving itself as an outstanding asset to the community in its Christian outreach through the arts, music, and education.” The ensemble was founded in 1997 by Scott Bersaglia in order to provide an expansive musical compliment to the worship service to his home church.  Since then, the ensemble has unfolded into a ministering body that proclaims the gospel of a sovereign and loving God.


“I am impressed that the group is not satisfied with merely playing the standard repertoire.”

Thomas W. Bolton, Ph.D.
