Now and next

“Ever since I got saved in a worship service I have had a desire for people to connect with God through worship. I have been part of the worship team here at LIFE church since 1996, and started by leading worship in small groups and then building a worship team for our youth ministry. I worked in the youth department of our church for a decade before becoming the worship Pastor. I now have the privilege of being a campus Pastor which fuels my writing and worship leading. I love the local church, with all its excitement and challenges, and I love playing a part in building His glorious church where lives get transformed.”

Quickfire Questions

My last meal on earth? It would have to be… Steak and chips
The greatest sports team ever in the history of everything… Newcastle United
It was pretty embarrassing when I was leading worship one times and… At our first ever youth conference (which is now thousands of young people but was then about 100 young people), I was really nervous. I grabbed the microphone out of the stand to say, ‘Hey let’s worship’. It got a bit stuck in the stand and so I pulled it too hard and hit myself in the face, busting my lip and causing blood to splat everywhere. I tried to play it cool but soon I started to have a lisp because my lip was so swollen!
My first album that I ever bought was… Michael Jackson - Thriller
When I search Netflix, I mainly browse the… kids section #dadlife
When I listen to music, my favorite way to do is… Obsess about 1 thing and listen to it repeatedly until I’m sick of it
My first mentor was… my youth leader
