I'm a 28-year old, married five years, father of two, worship leader/songwriter in Ames, Iowa. Body of Christ Christian Worship Center is my church home, where I am minister of music, overseeing the Gospel Soul innovators music ministry. I'm a 2001 graduate of Iowa State University (bachelor of music education) and have training from Hillsong International Leadership College in Sydney, Australia. There, I played trumpet with Darlene Zschech and the world-famous Hillsong Music Australia worship team, soloing on their 2003 studio release, "Faithful." As a songwriter, I strive to create music that crosses cultural barriers and brings God's people together in unified praise and worship. My songs have been tested in multiple ministry environments and have been very effective at meeting these goals. God bless!
