“How Great Thou Art” is such a wonderful portrayal of the gospel story. It captures this lovely balance between informative, poetic verses and the soaring, soulful chorus sung in response to that good news. This is definitely one worth memorizing.
Hey all, Back in November, Jarred Cain and I went into the studio with some friends to record five songs. This summer that project will come to its completion. We’re excited to share that with you all and can’t wait for you to hear what we’ve been working on. I want to let you knowContinue reading ““The Home That He Has Promised” – Album coming soon”
Greetings All, This month we’ll be singing a beautiful setting of Psalm 23 called “My Shepherd Will Supply My Need”. My hope is that you will be encouraged by these words, knowing that whatever you face you can find comfort in Christ.
A few weeks back I had the honor of giving a mini sermon during our Good Friday service. This sermon focuses on Christ in the garden, His prayer, and the resounding “no” that He received as an answer. If you want to hear the whole sermon check out the video below. I start preaching aroundContinue reading ““When the Answer is No” Good Friday Sermon 2022″
Tomorrow I have the honor of preaching one of three mini sermons at Calvary’s Good Friday service. This is a somber reflection on Christ’s journey from the communion table to the cross, focusing on His choice to be our suffering servant.

Welcome to April, spring, and the Easter season. This month we are looking at one of the great spirituals, “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord”. The repeated rhetorical question “were you there?” will keep bringing us back to Calvary as we sing. May this song be an encouragement for you and your familyContinue reading “Hymn of the Month: Were You There”
I’m excited for April’s Hymn of the Month. We’ll be singing the great spiritual “Were You There”. The full song will be coming soon but until then enjoy this instrumental version I put together.

Back then I was a little hard headed and strong willed, which is just a nice way of saying I was really annoying, and I thought that anything but freeform poetry would “cramp my style”. Now, asContinue reading “Sonnet: The Quiet Morning Hours Call for Prayer”
Hey all, This month my church started learning a “Hymn of the Month”. The idea is to learn a little bit of church history and to sing as a family. I thought I would share it here and invite you to join as well. This month’s hymn is “The Love of God”. Happy singing! ClickContinue reading “Hymn of the Month: The Love of God”
We’ve all been there. We’re about 2/3rds of the way through the medium paced song. The verses were nice, the chorus was nice, but then BAM! The band is now playing an instrumental (most likely its just the chorus chords with instruments playing the melody instead of the voices singing). It sounds great, but whatContinue reading “Help! The worship team is playing an Instrumental… What do I do?”
