While serving in the United States Air Force, Damian was led to the Lord by a good friend and co-worker. It was shortly after this time that Damian met his soon-to-be wife, Erin, who was also serving in the Air Force as a medical technician.
While attending a church in Northern California, he began learning guitar and was soon offered an opportunity to play guitar with the church’s worship band.
After serving eight years of service in the Air Force, the Bausmans landed in Visalia, where Damian began working for a local manufacturing company as a Safety Manager. It wasn’t long after that when Damian and Erin began attending Parkside Chapel and became plugged in to leading worship on a regular basis.
While Damian is a Safety Manager by trade, his heart and passion is to lead people into worship for God’s glory. Damian’s wife, Erin, also sings and has always been an important part of his worship ministry wherever they have had the opportunity to serve.
Damian and Erin have four children: Seth, Grant, Kate and Paige; their oldest Seth, recently graduated from high school and now plays drums for “Big Church.” The Bausmans consider themselves truly blessed that all four of their children love the Lord and are also involved in music ministry within their youth group at Parkside.
