A Q&A with your Director of Contemporary Worship

What is your vision for the position?

“I would envision my position opening up opportunities for people to engage with God through music and serving. Jesus came that we would have life and live it to the fullest. I believe a huge part of life to the fullest is found in worship and I eagerly plan to pursue this life as a church family.”


Where would you like to see your ministry in 5 years?

“I would love to see the worship ministry as a place that is inviting, thriving, and winning hearts for Christ. I’d love to see families within the congregation, as well as the worship team, all committed to working towards growing closer to Christ and seeing others come to know him.”


Where are you praying for people to help?

“I’m praying that volunteers will step up to volunteer for the worship team, to accomplish God’s purposes here at HMUMC.”


Anything else you would like to tell our congregation?

“Lauren and I are excited to be starting this journey with you all. As Lauren and I start a new family, with our first baby on the way, we’re also excited about stepping into our new family here at HMUMC! May God strengthen us all to serve him well and bring glory to his name.”
