Ministry in Austin, Texas
I am a gentle producer who delights in serving others by orchestrating environments and encouraging people so others experience the gospel.
I have a passion for music, children, and men's ministry.
I love to use my God-given abilities to bless others, especially children. When I was a young teen, I loved serving elementary kids – leading Sunday morning classes and heading up worship. Two summers ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to be the Towers Summer Camp worship band guitarist at Pine Cove, located in Tyler, TX. I returned the summer of 2014 to take on new challenges and my desire to continue along this path has only increased. In fact, in 2015, I’ll be returning to The Towers once again, not as a musician, but serving on the leadership team as the Work Crew Director.
Through my love of guitar and music, I discovered audio engineering. I love being able to mix live sound and record it in the studio in order to help other musicians be heard. I recently graduated with a degree in Audio Engineering from Belmont University in Nashville, TN. Both the city and school have provided me with many opportunities to learn and grow in my musical and engineering abilities.
After three summers at Pine Cove and four years at Belmont, I have decided to pursue full time ministry. When I first moved to Nashville four years ago, I never imagined I'd be seeking a career in ministry, especially after studying Audio Engineering for so long. However, throughout my journey, I’ve been deeply and consistently called to serve in this capacity. I love the kids. I love the atmosphere of learning about and loving the Lord. I love sharing the gift of music. I love serving God by serving children and their families.
Currently, to prepare for a lifetime of ministry, I am going through the Forge, a program at Pine Cove Christian Camps. This program will equip me to go and make disciples and to discover the identity, gifts, and passions that Christ has given me. After the program, I will be more equipped for a lifetime of ministry, even if that is not directly in the Christian camping industry.
No matter where God may take me in the upcoming years, I hope to accomplish this goal: help others experience the gospel.
