Join me


My wife Tara and I have embarked on a new journey. We are moving to New York City, the biggest city we will have ever lived in. It seems a bit crazy but we are so undeniably called to this.

In early March I accepted the position of Director of Worship and Arts at Our Saviour | New York, a recently relaunched ministry in New York City. In just under six months of relaunch, Our Saviour has two growing communities, one in Rego Park, Queens and another in Midtown, Manhattan.

I will be overseeing teams of musicians and artists as we serve both OSNY communities as well as all of New York City. I’ll also be working with what OSNY calls missional communities. Missional communities are simply a group of people gathering together, trying to live together in this crazy world and serving their neighbors.

In short, God calls His followers to love Him and love others…so that’s what we’ll be doing.

As you can imagine, living in a city like New York will provide unique opportunities for me as a musician. You can expect to hear more music from me in the near future as I will continue to write and perform. Playing music has always been a door to building relationships with others, and I am looking forward to the people we will meet and the creativity that will flow from it.

Many of you have asked us how you can support us, so we have put together this site explaining ways you can be part of the adventure.

I am humbled by the many people that have already committed to supporting us financially, through prayer and sharing the story. I give thanks for your partnership in this ministry.
