I think this would be my first ‘note-worthy’ publication and I’m excited to tell you about it. I was recently asked to write a piece for Neue Resources which is a branch of Relevant Magazine. I was asked to write about why we sing the songs we sing and the importance of such things. Anyways, I’d love for you to read it and hopefully you’ll catch a small glimpse into my small brain on what I think is important as it relates to the songs we sing.
This is a read for everyone, but especially Worship Leaders.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you read too! Hopefully you’ll enjoy! CLICK HERE TO READ THE ARTICLE (if it’s to small to read click the page and it will ZOOM in for ya).

Okay, I’ve got to share some pretty awesome news with you guys! I was recently asked by Cynthia Ware from the Center for Church Communications to be a part of a small group of creative individuals across the country to help support and promote ministry comm professionals. I am excited about this opportunity to help those who are spreading the gospel through creative means. Seriously incase you didn’t know, the CFCC is behind many great projects (the most popular being the Church Marketing Sucks blog).
The group so far is made up of some down right amazing, creative, and passionate individuals. I’m truly humbled and honored to be serving with all of these great people:
- Greg Atkinson (Dallas, TX)
- Tiffani Barnes (Nashville, TN)
- Shelley Chesney (Santa Barbara, CA)
- Nathan Davis (Oklahoma City, OK)
- Danielle Hartland (Erie, PA)
- Rich Kirkpatrick (Temecula, CA)
- Craig Littlejohn (San Jose, CA)
- Vince Marotte (Austin, TX)

If you’re in church communications and I don’t know you, please leave a comment or email me. I would love to connect and see how I can help support and promote what you’re doing.
