My grandparents were married for 77 years. And one of the greatest gifts my father gave to me before he died was his love and faithfulness to my mom for over 60 yrs. Here's a moving song about staying by one of my favorite artists...

Autumn Ablaze

Forget Andy Williams, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year! When God breaks out all the rest of the crayons in the box. The crisp air and low humidity. The harvest moons. The sweaters. The football. The homecoming bonfires. The Fall Classic. The pumpkins & hayrides. (Ok I'll admit, the raking leaves part can get old after a while. :-) But still... there's just something profoundly beautiful, romantic and poetic about the fall.

And appropriately, as this is "harvest" season, there are a number of ministry events coming up. I'll be leading worship for two Wednesday night services at Calvary Chapel Delco on 10/2 and 10/30. On Friday, 10/18, I'll be flying solo for an intimate coffeehouse appearance at Central Presbyterian Church in Downingtown, PA from 7-9pm. (However there's a little rumor going around that a certain beautiful young singer I used to sing and record with may be joining me for that one :-).

On Saturday, 10/19, I'll be leading worship and sharing some things our family learned through the life and home-going of our daughter Amanda at Joni & Friend's Disabilities Summit at Calvary Church in Lancaster, PA. This will be a special one day equipping conference for churches & families interested in being a blessing to those with disabilities. It's not too late to sign up, btw!!

On Sunday, 10/20, I'll be singing God's praise with my church family at CCDC once again for our Compassion Weekend. Click HERE to see all the opportunities to serve and please pray about getting involved. Love to serve with you!

And then on Friday, 10/25, at 5:30pm, I have the joy of teaming up with longtime friend, Pastor Al Sones, of Good News Church in Mechanicsburg, PA. He and the Acts 11:12 Team will be hosting an exciting church planting banquet with guest speaker David Harvey of the Mt Bethel Project. Pastor Al has asked me to lead a time of corporate worship and special music for this ministry event. It will be held at Genetti's in Hazleton, PA and tickets are $20.

Your Support

Your gifts of support to help this music ministry are so greatly appreciated, as they help thousands of people each year come to hear and sing the good news of Jesus Christ. It's all about worship.

As John Piper rightly said, "Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't. Missions begins and ends with worship. When the flame of worship burns with the heat of God's true worth, the light of missions will shine to the darkest peoples on earth."

The Lord is using this music ministry to bring His light into the dark places, the broken places, the hopeless places. Your prayerful support helps me go wherever the Lord would have me serve. It also helps fund new recordings so they don't come from our family budget. And your gifts can be tax-deductible by following these instructions HERE.

If you've been blessed by this music ministry and would like to support me in the work God is doing, I would be so honored to team with you. Thank you!!

Thank  You  For  Your  Prayers!

It's been a busy season of ministry with so much to be grateful for! Along with Sunday and mid-week services, we celebrated Good Friday at Goshen Baptist Church (West Chester, PA), Easter services at Calvary Chapel of Delta (Delta, PA), and both traditional and contemporary services at Brandywine Valley Baptist Church (Wilmington, DE). Thank you for your prayers, for they were truly felt.

The band and I also had the joy of worshiping God once more with the men of Iron Sharpens Iron, converging at Cedar Crest Bible Fellowship Church in Allentown, PA on Saturday, April 16th for an all-day equipping and worship conference.

Guest speakers included director/producer Stephen Kendrick (War Room, Courageous, Fireproof) and pastor/author Eric Ludy. Praying that all of us in attendance apply what we learned as we return home to the spiritual battles we face, encouraged to live holy lives, full of faith... to be men of integrity.


Upcoming  Events

On Wednesday nights, April 27th, May 11th & May 25th at 7pm, I'll be leading worship for the mid-week services along with my brothers and sisters at Calvary Chapel of Delta. On Sunday mornings, I'll be serving at Goshen Baptist Church (West Chester, PA) on May 8th, May 15th & May 29th, and at Brandywine Valley Baptist Church (Wilmington, DE) on May 22nd. It would be so good to worship the Lord with you at one of these great churches!

Previous  Conferences... 

Back in May, our band had the honor of backing worship leader Nadine Maenza at the Women's Iron Sharpens Iron conference at Carlisle Evangelical Free Church (Carlisle, PA). We'll be with her once again for the Women's Iron Sharpens Iron conference at Calvary Church in Souderton, PA on October 10th. Below are some pics from the event. Here we are joined by great guitarist and all-around funny guy, Gary Livesay, from the Mary James trio.


Thank you for your prayers! Lives changed forever by the transforming power of the gospel. Below are some pics from the MEN'S Iron Sharpens Iron national equipping conference at Cedar Crest Bible Fellowship (Allentown, PA) we led in April!
