No Set List – 06/25/17

There's no setlist posted for this weekend because I didn't lead. Part of my role at Seacoast Community Church includes taking Sundays off. Crazy, right? Our church highly values teamwork and rest so our teaching pastors rotate preaching and I rotate leading worship music with my friend, who also happens to be my predecessor as…Read more No Set List – 06/25/17

Set List – 06/18/17

highlights: We sang We Fall Down from our knees and it was very humbling for me. After reflecting on Psalm 95:6-7, we kneeled before God together and offered Him our crowns. None of us laid down the same "crown." For some, it was "good health" or "getting my dream job." For others, it was "control of…Read more Set List – 06/18/17

Set List – 06/11/17

highlights: I've found Holy Spirit to be a strong opening song for church. The lyrics really set the mood not only for the worship music set, but for the entire church service. This past weekend was evidence of this. We opened the service with Holy Spirit and afterwards reflected on Romans 15:13. I could feel the room…Read more Set List – 06/11/17

Set List – 05/21/17

highlights: My favorite part of last weekend was the band. Everyone playing was God-ordained and I don't say that lightly. It has been difficult finding musicians to play on Sunday mornings, especially as summer approaches. This week in particular was notably more difficult. I made over 30 phone calls to different musicians in the area and no one…Read more Set List – 05/21/17

Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

highlights: There wasn't really a "highlight" for this past weekend. The only word that most accurately describes it is "unforgettable." It was my last Sunday as the Music & Worship Arts Director at Emmanuel Faith Community Church, aka the Resonate Worship Leader. Emmanuel Faith has been much more than my place of employment. The people who work…Read more Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

“I’ll Be Back” (As Originally said by Jesus, not the Terminator) 

Before He ascended into Heaven, Jesus promised us that He would return for us, but He didn’t give us a time or date. In fact, He Himself doesn’t even know when He’ll return, only that He will (Matthew 24:36-41). Until He does return, however, He gave us the task of going to tell others about…Read more “I’ll Be Back” (As Originally said by Jesus, not the Terminator) 

Maybe “Hallelujah” Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does, Leonard Cohen

I’ve never been one of those people who chooses a “word for the year,” but for some reason, I felt compelled to pick a word for this next year. I chose the word, “hallelujah.” Why? Initially, I really wasn’t sure. One of my most notable exposures to the word “hallelujah,”  has been through the eponymous…Read more Maybe “Hallelujah” Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does, Leonard Cohen
