I have the privilege of serving as the Worship Minister here at Grace. My main tasks relate to the weekly Worship services. Whether selecting music, rehearsing the team, dealing with the sound and technical aspects of our auditorium, or organizing the services, I seek to make our Worship times a God exalting, God honoring, and God glorifying celebration.
God has blessed me with my beautiful wife Anna, who has inspired me to pursue Christ with all of my life. We have four children (all boys): Ryan, Corbin, Micah, and Dylan.
I grew up in a Christian home; always involved in my church youth group; yet I was 17 years old before I truly knew that God had called me to be His. God changed my life!
Enjoying music all of my life, God has allowed me to use my gifts in service to Him. I was a part of the Grace Worship team for many years before being asked to serve as the Worship Minister on a part time basis. My full time job is as an Instructor of Art at Northeastern State University here in Tahlequah, where I teach classes in Photography and Graphic Design. I love how "creative" our God is, and enjoy the interaction with students that the classroom offers.
I invite you to come to Grace and enjoy celebrating our redemption through worshiping our God in song.
