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)

Set List – 04/09/17 (Palm Sunday)

highlights: Hosanna (Praise Is Rising) was hands down the highlight of the morning. We set up the song by reading Matthew 21:6-11. I wanted us to feel the anticipation of our coming King Jesus before singing, similar to how the people at that time might have felt. We closed our eyes together and saw the men, women, boys and girls…Read more Set List – 04/09/17 (Palm Sunday)

Set List – 04/02/17

highlights: Only King Forever is ALWAYS a highlight for me. The song is so anthem-atic (yes, I totally made that word up). The lyrics and feel of the song really energize our church; kind of like how a "we will rock you" chant energizes a crowd at a sports game. The bridge lyrics are probably my favorite in the…Read more Set List – 04/02/17

Behind The Song: There Is Hope

I feel like there are not a ton of upbeat worship songs nowadays, which is slightly ironic because being a Christian is a joyful thing. Of course, there are difficult aspects. As co-heirs with Christ Jesus, we are assured of sharing in His sufferings but also of sharing in His glory (Romans 8:16-17). Our present trials…Read more Behind The Song: There Is Hope

Set List – 03/26/17

highlights: We all belted out verse 3 of How Deep The Father's Love this past weekend. The lyrics reminded us that Jesus is our only boast. No amount of good words or deeds could ever make us right in the sight of God; only Jesus. That is why He is our boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). In Him, we stand as sons…Read more Set List – 03/26/17
