My Resume'

(Download as a PDF, Word97 or a WordXP File)

I’m a contemporary worship leader who appreciates both hymns and post-modern worship styles. I lead worship from the guitar (acoustic or electric).
I’m a man of God (age 30), husband to a Godly wife (Jessica), father of one son (Timothy, age 7) and one daughter
(Ellie, age 4).
I Believe
Jesus is the Son of God. The Way, the Truth and the Life. He died on the Cross to redeem us from our sins and rose to life on the third day.

True worship is an act of the head, the heart and the hands. My calling as a worship leader is to model, teach, and cultivate those three aspects in the worship teams, the church and in the community.
