About You About You

Time’s been a crunch for a couple years now, but I’m hoping for windows to open up.  I used to play drums for Lifehouse Worship Center, and before that at Trinity Fellowship in Amarillo, TX.  Was in a touring ORU band in college.  I play mainly because I love it.  Guitar is pretty rudimentary and it hasn’t been tested with other musicians, but who knows.  Worship to me is making love overtures to the Bridegroom and warfare as well.  That affects how I approach playing, when the music allows that.

What Are You Looking For? What Are You Looking For?

What most Christian musicians are looking for, I guess.  A divine fit, anointing, purpose, being connected to something greater than the sum of the talents and ambitions resident within the band members and congregation.  Something with the potential to become great.  Having said that, I understand the need to keep a light touch on things.  The Lord has His own plans.
