Set List – 07/09/17

reflections: I had the opportunity to speak at a youth worship conference this past Saturday. It was a really great event! One of my past students organized the whole thing. It was obvious that she put a lot of thought and prayer into it. I'm very proud of her hard work and honored to have…Read more Set List – 07/09/17

Set List – 07/02/17

highlights: I was back in the saddle leading worship music this past weekend and it felt awesome. I think my "Sunday off" provided some much needed rest. I didn't know it at the time, but I felt notably more rejuvenated and refreshed going into the morning. Each service felt right. In fact, one of the…Read more Set List – 07/02/17

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 – 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 – 05/21/17

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)

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)
