Ferdinand was a member of a spiritual revival band that performed in Jerusalem, Hongkong, and China. Ferdi currently serves as the lead guitarist for Calvary Chapel South Church in Kent, WA. He also performs regularly with a local contemporary Christian band as vocalist and guitarist. A master of the acoustic, electric, and bass guitar, Ferdi feels at home playing and teaching just about any genre. In his spare time, Ferdi enjoys working on computers, playing chess, and badminton.
