Worship is one of the most important things in life because it is the one thing that we will continue in heaven. I live my life as ongoing worship, not focusing on my weaknesses and failures as that provides a window to God's strength and mercy and grace.
Being employed as the worship arts director in a couple different churches, I now find myself as a freelance worship leader. I am a musical artist by profession, after the split of my band Furthermore last year.
In my off time, I serve at the Olive Garden (not so much for money, but to keep busy) where I put Jesus' call to serve ALL people into action on a daily basis.
You can't be in worship music and dislike Chris Tomlin, so I'll lead with that. I listen to a lot of the pop/punk variety, but some of my favorite artists/bands are:
Panic! at the Disco
Fall Out Boy
The Devil Wears Prada
Of Mice and Men
Favorite Bible Verses / Passages:
I love Psalm 33. I heard a sermon called "How Great is Our God" by Louie Giglio, where he spoke from there, and fell in love with that passage. Use the address below to watch the best part of that sermon.
