Set List – 06/04/17

highlights: This was a notably more connected Sunday morning, I'd say. Ryan did a great job of tying his sermon to the songs before and after it. I intentionally choose songs to support the topics and Scriptures that our pastors preach on so it was nice to hear/feel validation on this effort from Ryan. Yay for teamwork.…Read more Set List – 06/04/17

Set List – 05/28/17

highlights: We dedicated five minutes to mingling and grabbing coffee before the sermon started today. People were smiling, chatting with one other and really having a good time. I'm glad that we made a point to make our services more relational. God wants to be in a relationship with us and offers us the opportunity to do so through Jesus.…Read more Set List – 05/28/17

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 – 05/14/17

highlights: We had baptisms during both of our services last weekend; a lot of them (something like eight per service). Our pastoral team worked really hard to make sure that the baptisms were connected with everything else going on during the services. We didn't want to reduce the baptisms to just an "add on," but instead as an…Read more Set List – 05/14/17

Set List – 05/07/17 (First Sunday with Seacoast Community Church)

highlights: It was my first Sunday at my new home, Seacoast Community Church. To say that I merely enjoyed the morning would be an understatement. It was one of the most welcoming experiences of my life. The people of Seacoast Community Church literally embraced my wife and I after each service. Seriously. So. Many. Hugs. One of my favorite parts…Read more Set List – 05/07/17 (First Sunday with Seacoast Community Church)

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)

Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter Sunday)

highlights: Glorious Day is THE Easter song. As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of holiday specific tunes, but this one is an exception. Easter is a BIG deal for Christians. Had not Jesus died and rose again, we would have no hope (1 Peter 1:3-5). Through Him, we celebrate the hope of…Read more Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter Sunday)
