I grew up in church, and then drifted for about 15 years. I gave my life to Christ in 1995. I had lost my dreams and as I began to learn and grow in Christ, He began giving me new dreams. He rekindled my passion for music. He gave me a desire to write songs and then allowed me to learn enough guitar to use in writing.
He then called me into ministry, but I wasn't sure in what area. This was due to my impatience and insecurity more than anything. As a youth I had felt led to preach, but by the time I gave my life to Him, I wasn't so sure that I was 'qualified' any longer. Plus, as a singer,I wanted to be up there with the Christian 'stars' and yet I knew my own abilities were not on that level. Understand, I was a babe in Christ, I still had a lot of worldly focus. Finally, after several years of searching, trying different things, different styles, and even different churches, my wife and I surrendered to the call to minister in Lewisburg, TN. What began as Bible study has grown into a church of which I co-pastor and share in music leadership. God has blessed us there greatly. Lives are being touched, changed. His Word is being taught and lived. Young Christians are maturing. And most important, God is being lifted up.
