How Your Program Is Unique Here:
The Worship Arts program at Crown College is shifting its foundation from a Music degree to a Ministry degree. I am committed to helping prepare students to serve as ministry leaders in the local church, who have the skills and training to not only lead musically with excellence, but also to embrace their roles as pastoral leaders. I am excited to use my experience in Worship Ministry to help challenge students to become the worship leaders God has called them to be.
I gave my life to the Lord at a young age, and committed fully to Him at the LIFE Conference in Phoenix, Arizona in 2004. Since then, I have been on a journey of witnessing God move in so many powerful ways. I consider it a tremendous honor to serve the Lord at Crown College in this role.
Favorite Bible Verse and Why:
Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved! For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.
