Heather and I were married during the summer of 1999 and thought we were going to set the world on fire. Like many young newlyweds we were naïve and were caught off guard on how hard life really was. We spent many years going through the motions just surviving life and wondering if there was more. We had tried "church" and were still not satisfied. We searched in many directions trying to find that fulfillment. The searching and its effects nearly destroyed our family.Then God came into the picture. As we learned what it meant to love and serve him, he became more real to us. Today, I can honesty say that he is real and wants to move in people's lives. He is a God who restores, heals, and gives hope.
Favorite Verse (Heather)
2 Corinthians 2:14-15a (ESV) - But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God...
Favorite Verse (David)
Psalm 32:8-11 (ESV) - I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you. Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
I hold a license to minister with the Assemblies of God and have been active in ministry in various roles. Over the past 30 years, I have been been a worship leader, worship team member, soloist, and an evangelist. A former pastor once told me that worship is my "happy place."
I enjoy almost any style of worship and praise music. My tastes range from contemporary to alternative to gospel. If you walk by my car, you may hear the likes of artists such as Hillsong, Jesus Culture, Bethel, David Crowder, Martha Munnizi, or Hezekiah Walker. I just love to sing His praise!
What does worship mean to me? It is an expression of our love and devotion to God. This is not just for all He has done, but because of who He is. Worship is reaching out to HIm as He pours out His unfailing love on us. It is an intimate place - a place of abandonment of all that is in our hearts. It is a place of expression - to express our love song to HIm. There are many facets to worship. Singing HIs praise is just one of them!
Psalms 91:1 (KJV) - He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
