Markay Fairley is the Director of Music at Fellowship Monrovia. Beginning as a drummer in his home church at 10 years old, Markay fell in love with music and recognized his call to the music ministry. At 17, he taught himself piano and after months of practicing, he played at his first church service within one year of starting. In 2005, Markay accomplished one of his dreams when he began his career as a touring musician for professional artists. After much prayer, in 2013 Markay decided to trust God and to end his touring career and use his gifts for God's glory. Markay believes that worship is rooted in humility and brokenness, and it sets the tone for an encounter with God. A proud Lakers fan, Markay enjoys watching basketball and football games, reading, and spending time with his beautiful wife, Carmen and daughter, Gabrielle.
