My Story

I grew up singing in church. I knew that God's hand was on my life from the time I was 11 years old and  the call to be a worship leader came when I was 14. I felt music so deeply in my soul, even when there was none to be heard in the room. I cannot get enough of being with God, singing His praises and bringing others along to experience Him with me.

Giving up a full vocal performance scholarship to Marshall University, my parents scraped up the support for me to go to Kentucky Christian College. From there, I entered into full-time worship ministry, first in Lexington, KY and then in Sharpsburg, GA followed by 7 years at Mt. Paran Church in Atlanta, GA and 5 years as the Corporate and Creative Arts Pastor at Riverside Church of Fort Myers. I am currently the Executive Pastor at NorthField Church in Gallatin, TN. The local church has pretty much been my life for the last three decades. Now, I honestly cannot remember a time when my passion has been stronger to lead God's people in worship and write new songs for them to sing.
